Email Security and its Importance in 2022

Businesses around the world continued to find themselves at the crossroads of a torrent of new cyberattacks. In 2021, the cyber threat landscape in the country after the country became more treacherous, not less. Especially Emails – That allows easy entries into corporates that deal with sensitive personal information. Statistics say 99% of Cyber Threats begin with Email.

Every organization should have an email security strategy designed to help minimize the security risks of corporate email. Decreasing email security-related risks can have a dramatic impact on an organization’s exposure to cybersecurity threats. These email security best practices outline important first steps that an organization should take to secure corporate email communications.

  • Control device access to email attachments: Prevent total access to sensitive email attachments on vulnerable unmanaged devices (BYOD) while permitting full access to secure managed devices.
  • Ensure confidentiality of sensitive communications: Enable secure delivery of email communications and eliminates the traditional barriers of cost and complexity by offering easy administration.
  • Identify explicit images to enforce acceptable use: Proactively monitor, educate, and enforce company email policy for explicit or pornographic image attachments.
  • Spam and phishing protection: Detect unwanted spam and unsafe phishing emails, allowing customers to block, quarantine, or take other actions.
  • Educate users to improve security awareness: Unique phishing education with feedback capabilities educates employees as they make mistakes, helping them to better learn and understand safe email best practices.
  • Set up Two Factor Authentication (2FA): Email users must protect their email accounts using Two-Factor Authentication (2FA). In a 2FA environment, a password is just one piece of the puzzle to access an email account; users need the other pieces to authenticate and gain access.
  • Employ Endpoint Protection: Deploy an email dedicated anti-virus/anti-malware solution to scan files, attachments, and websites and identify email-borne attacks, including malicious attachments and fake URLs. This solution could stop Malware and prevent users from opening attachments or malicious links.
  • Use Email Protection Software: Business Email protection software such as Proofpoint provides basic email security capabilities, including anti-phishing, anti-spam, anti-malware, and anti-virus.
