Mimecast Report Shows Malicious Emails On The Rise

In light of Mimecast’s latest Email Security Risk Assessment (ESRA) which shows a 25% rise in possible malicious emails since last year, Jake Moore, cyber security expert at ESET cimmented below.

Jake Moore, Cyber Security Expert at ESET:

“Emails are by far the largest attack vector for spreading malware or malware related services. With an estimated 281 billion emails being sent and received each day in 2018, it stands to reason that it is used as a very productive means to trick end users into downloading files, visiting dodgy websites or sending their logon credentials.

Education and perseverance is one of the best ways to slow this practice down. Whilst email is a fantastic business and consumer aid, it is one practice that needs to be constantly checked and monitored.”
