Below are 3 steps to protect your business’ email system from attacks such as Phishing and Ransomware.
1) Pass all your email through a third party spam filter. Do not rely on your email client’s built-in ineffective tool. A proper spam filter will remove over 90% of spam and phishing email and also filter out email with dodgy links and dangerous attachments.
2) Enable 2-factor authentication. This will mean that (in addition to your email address and password) you will be prompted for a code sent to you by SMS or via an authenticator app in order to sign into your email on a new device.
3) Train your staff. Security Awareness Training will enable your staff to recognise illegitimate email and significantly reduce the likelihood of a breach.
