It’s the little things in business that can take you down no matter how hard you try to do things the right or safe way. You can spend a lot of money on cybersecurity services only to have your employee expose your business’s critical client or employee data through email.
Email is one of the most effective tools that every business uses. Everyone knows how much the employees of a company use emails to keep the business running, especially cybercriminals.
Your business emails are just as vulnerable as personal emails regarding cyberattacks. Even worse, many employees don’t know this. You want to ensure that your emails are spam free and protected to the fullest extent. The experienced team at Nicolet Tech can review your company’s email management system and ensure it is secure.
Data breaches through emails
According to a recent report from IRONSCALES, 81 percent of worldwide organizations have witnessed an increase in email phishing attacks since March 2020.
Phishing is a cyberattack that hackers use to gain victims’ personal information. It happens when a hacker pretends to be a reputable company and requests the victim’s personal information.
Receiving an email from “Apple” about your recent purchase that you don’t remember placing is an example of phishing. Criminals send these emails to all types of email accounts from all over the world. Do not let your company fall prey to a phishing email.
Common forms of business email scams
Another recent phishing attack is the use of a fraudulent business email. When hackers use fraudulent business emails to act as legitimate businesses, that is a scam known as spoofing. This scam happens when a hacker sets up a business email address identical to your business’s email.
The hacker then uses this email to send out messages to various victims. These emails often request victims to use their passwords, send money, or fill out their bank account numbers.
How cyberattacks hurt businesses
When an employee opens up a fraudulent email from a cybercriminal, it is like water seeping through a crack.
The cybercriminal now has access to your business’s data, including any personal data your customers have filled in. They can use this information to commit even more dangerous crimes like identity theft and ransomware attacks.
It can seriously hurt your business when your customers and the general public discover someone stole their information because of your company’s data breach. Your customers may never trust you again and may then look elsewhere for business. They can also end up suing your business for the data breach.
