Today’s remote teams have to rely heavily on communication like email more than ever before. With so much emphasis placed on this medium, we’ve put together a few myths about email and email security.
Myth 1: All dangerous emails contain files or links
It’s a common misconception that a harmful email must contain attached files or links. The fact is many dangerous emails don’t. Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks are harmful emails that look legitimate. They use social engineering techniques to get you to follow their requests, with no files to download or links to click.
Myth 2: Training users to detect spam is an effective protection
Employees need regular training, testing, and retroaction to be effective at recognizing email threats. However, what is critical to this training is focus: commit time, money, and sustained effort to training your users or avoid exposing them to email threats.
Myth 3: Spam filtering is complicated
Well, this myth is somewhat true. Email filtering, when done correctly, is complicated. Letting all safe emails through while blocking all harmful ones is challenging. That doesn’t mean it has to be challenging for your users or your IT team. The right email filtering solution should give you enough control to personalize your experience but not overwhelm you with too many options.
