Email is organisations’ most essential business tool—and today’s top malware delivery vector. It has become fertile ground for the most damaging cyber threats and all kinds of fraud, the channel where cyber attackers are most likely to compromise their targets. They trick users into clicking on an unsafe link, giving away their credentials, or even unwittingly carrying out attacks themselves (such as wiring money or sending sensitive files).
The threats have changed. Yet much of the cybersecurity sector remains stuck in old threat models, struggling to graft minor improvements onto old strategies that grow less and less effective by the day.
It’s time for a new approach. In today’s threat landscape, an effective cybersecurity programme focuses on people first.
