Businesses, freelancers, and all working professionals have one thing in common: they all use email as a preferred platform for communication. And even though email has become an inherent part of our work lives, how often do you think about its security before using it so freely?
Just look at this real-life case where a business lost $190,000 because their supplier’s business email was hacked!
In fact, did you know that a whopping “91% of all cyber-attacks start with an email”?
But that is not it. The entire situation is even more complicated due to the high number of email exchanges. In 2019, 293 billion emails were exchanged every day, and that number is expected to increase to over 347 billion in the next three years.
With email being such an essential part of our business communication, it is crucial to know the importance of email security. Even a minor breach can be detrimental to your business reputation or lead to significant monetary loss.
