Best practices for email security at your organisation

We set out thorough guidelines on everything from passwords to policy for effective email security

Email is an extremely effective entry point for cybercriminals, with phishing and social engineering attacks both commonly levelled via the medium. 

In an organisation, it could only take one employee not being sufficiently vigilant about email security to compromise the safety and security of countless others, and even the whole enterprise. 

In fact, your employees are the biggest vulnerability you have, so an email security plan really starts there. It will only be a matter of time before your organisation falls victim to an email hack attempt, but its impact doesn't have to be devastating if you've got a 'best practice' in place and know exactly what to do. 

Read on for our list of best practices to keep your email safe.
