Email Security 101 for Small Business Owners


  • A January 2020 research study by BullGuard identified that 43% of small to medium sized businesses (SMBs) lack any type of cybersecurity defense plan.
  • Verizon’s 2020 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) discovered that phishing emails are the top threat to SMBs, making up 30% of all attacks.
  • A 2019 study from Keeper Security and the Ponemon Institute, noted that 70% of SMBs have had their employees’ passwords lost or stolen.

If there is one thing that 2020 has taught us, it is that we are all targets in the eyes of malicious cyber actors (the bad guys and gals). Whether you are a government organization, or a small to medium sized business, the data that your organization creates is extremely valuable. Without a solid plan in place, cyber criminals will find a way to break into your organization, steal your sensitize data, and escape undetected. This week’s video, from Tonia Dudley, Security Solution Advisor at Cofense, provides organizational leaders with an overview of email security best practices which can be used to protect your business!
