Email Security and Data Protection: Your Shield for the Digital World 🛡️

Jan 23, 2024 | Blog


A well-balanced email security is the best line of defense against hacker attacks and data espionage. Simultaneously, the tools used protect your inboxes from spam messages. Surprisingly, email security is still neglected by many companies. Yet, the importance of data in the modern business environment cannot be emphasized enough. However, the figures from the International Data Corporation (IDC) should wake up companies at the latest. Worldwide, companies have experienced business losses of $20 billion due to ransomware attacks. This number is expected to rise to $265 billion by 2031.


Why are email security and data protection so important?

Since emails are among the most popular and common communication methods—both privately and professionally—people tend to automatically trust an email from a seemingly known address. The likelihood of opening the email itself and its attachments is very high. This paves the way for data espionage. Additionally, email, in its format, offers numerous attack possibilities:


  • Phishing: Pretending to be a legitimate organization to trick users into revealing sensitive information.
  • Social Engineering: Manipulating individuals to disclose confidential information.
  • Spear Phishing: A targeted version of phishing focusing on specific individuals or organizations with personalized emails.
  • Ransomware: Malicious software that encrypts files or systems until a ransom is paid.
  • Malware: Software that infiltrates computer systems, spying on and making changes surreptitiously.
  • Spoofing: Attackers falsify email headers, making them look like they come from a trusted source.
  • Man-in-the-Middle Attack: Intercepting and reading or altering communication between two parties.
  • Data Exfiltration: Stealing sensitive data from a company’s email system.
  • Denial of Service: Email server is crashed by simultaneously sending numerous emails.
  • Account Takeover: Using a person’s email account to send spam or phishing emails or to access sensitive data.
  • Identity Theft: Stealing personal data such as name, address, or social security number for fraudulent purposes.
  • Brand Impersonation: Pretending to be well-known brands to obtain sensitive information (passwords).
