June 2023 TECH Talk – Why Email Security is Falling Behind

June 29, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am PDT

June 2023 TECH Talk

Hard to believe, but 93% of cyberattacks start with email. It’s an “old school” attack vector - and one that simply can't keep up to secure against the volume and sophistication of attacks coming at it. This includes a tidal rise in business email compromise (BEC)—with pretexting attacks alone doubling in just a year.

Adversaries use well-orchestrated social engineering techniques and impersonate a known and trusted figure, preying on peoples’ kind nature. Bad actors monitor social media posts looking for the perfect opportunity to strike (traveling CEOs, new hires, etc).

Everyone and anyone is a target—leaving everyone and anyone only one click away from danger.

In this month’s 30-min discussion, we’ll share insights to help protect your business:

  • How a BEC attack is different from a typical phishing email
  • What tactics are used
  • Who is typically targeted
  • What are some identifiers of a BEC attack
  • How to proactively defend your organization
