Exploring the Need for Cloud Email Security
Organisations worldwide have moved to cloud email and realized the benefits of increased productivity, collaboration, and extensibility. But attackers are abusing the open, connected nature of the cloud to carry out new cyber attacks—using social engineering tactics to trick users into inputting credentials, sending money, and providing access to confidential information. Making matters worse, attackers are also finding new ways to directly access the email environment, using third-party integrations and MFA bypass techniques to complete their scams. Join this session which will discuss why email is still the most important channel to protect, what types of attacks you can expect in the coming year, and how cloud email security platforms can keep your organization safe.
