One of the best ways to protect your business against these types of attacks is by educating your employees on the methods these criminals exploit to gain access to your employees and your sensitive information. But beyond that, there are some methods you can use in conjunction with education to help protect your business.
1. Pre-Delivery – Using filters can help prevent malicious emails from reaching your employees’ inbox and is effective for preventing indiscriminate attacks but not targeted ones. More useful, however, are solutions that not only filter emails before reaching the inbox but incorporating virus scanners, real-time intent analysis, reputation checks, URL checkers, and other assessments before any email reaching your employee. We have an offering that can help you prevent an attack before it even starts. Contact your representative for more.
2. Post-Delivery – if a user flags an email as suspicious, manually review each email as well as run it through a machine learning filter.
3. After an Incident has occurred – If a user does accidentally and unknowingly fall victim to a phishing email, stay calm. Call us immediately to develop a plan of action to secure your network and ensure no harm comes to your data.
