The trend toward remote work has been growing in recent years and the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the move to offsite work into warp speed. As offices were closed and more people moved offsite, their reliance on email increased exponentially. One study showed that email communication increased by 24% during the pandemic.
As email traffic grew, so did the opportunity for threat actors. One report said that eight of 10 organizations around the world had experienced an email phishing attack since March 2020. Almost 25 percent of all data breaches involve phishing and 85 percent of data breaches involve some human element.
The vulnerability of emails to your IT security often lies in their complexity. If you are like many organizations, you are saddled with multiple products and incompatible architectures which in many cases forces the disabling of Microsoft 0365’s native protection.
