Now more than ever, bad actors are looking to exploit email. Organizations need to prepare for threats, including phishing, ransomware, business email compromise, and advanced threats. Attackers leverage social engineering tricks, compromised web links, and weaponized files to exploit users who work remotely and rely on email communications more than ever before.
For IT leaders, including email and system administrators, there are two ways to determine if a solution is ready—wait for an attack or take the proactive step of performing an assessment. An email risk assessment can help teams better understand:
Identify threats that have bypassed existing email security defenses, regardless of whether known or unknown.
Gain visibility on spam, marketing newsletters and emails with inappropriate content that represent risk.
Understand traffic patterns including user behavior, message volumes, average message size and bandwidth consumption.
