Welcome to the 2021 Confident Response Series , where we will be bringing a session every quarter to help fine-tune your incident response preparedness and understand the latest tactics, techniques, and procedures from the most successful cyber criminals, leading to deeper collaboration with business partners and mitigation of technical, legal, and reputational risks.
In 2020, nearly 30% of all cyber incidents investigated by Kroll, were related to email compromises, and nearly 40% of all attacks started with some sort of phishing email. Despite everything changing with the pandemic and the increased use of cloud platforms, email continues to be a fundamental layer in security programs. Organizations, however, often miss critical steps in hardening email systems. In this session, Richard Davies will share some of the most common security flaws in email systems, how attackers exploit them and actionable steps organizations can take.
