Phishing, Ransomware and other threats are commonly delivered through email, but Email Fraud is rapidly becoming a chief concern. In part because it’s so easy to target users, groom them and execute attacks (anyone who can spoof an email or an invoice can do it), companies are losing billions every year to email fraud attacks. Fortunately, you don’t have to spend billions to get Email Fraud Protection for yourself.
Email Fraud is primarily enabled by the amount of information available about your employees online. In fact, a recent Email Fraud ring busted by the FBI had collected a “hit list” 100 CFO’s from companies located in Ohio and Illinois. This international ring had groomed their targets from LinkedIn and other sources – while you’re not about to ask colleagues to black out their online profiles, you can take action to limit the possibility that they get targeted or impersonated during an Email Fraud Attack
Email Fraud is a big part of cybercrime, but it doesn’t take a genius hacker to take action. A majority of email fraudsters are simply what’s called “cyber-enabled criminals”. These are common (and in some cases exceptional) thieves who have found an opportunity to ply their trade online. Display names, email addresses and invoices or more can be easily spoofed by these attackers, making it to your users without proper protections in place.
While may requests for funds, fake invoices or other attempts at Email Fraud can be easily identified by most users, all it takes is one mistake to lose tens of thousands of dollars or more. With protection against Email Fraud built into Green Cloud’s Advanced Threat Protection suite, the phishing and spoofing tactics used by attackers, along with the malicious links and attachments common to all forms of compromised email, you’re able to cut out fraudsters before they ever reach your users.
Email Protection may seem expensive to some, but with 90% of organizations getting targeted by Email Fraud attacks every
year, it’s only a matter of time before an attack creates risk for your organization. The potential costs of this far outweigh
the costs of prevention. With all the other benefits of a secure email gateway that features Encryption and Archiving in tow,
Green Cloud offers you effective protection that blocks email spam and keeps your users focused on productive work – not
the distractions and mistakes that come with suspicious messages.CONTACT US TO DISCOVER MORE
