In this era of sophisticated modern cyberattacks, how can you be sure that the email in your inbox is really from your bank? Can the link within it really be trusted?
Migrating business email to the cloud
Email has been a central component of business operations for decades, and has become an increasingly vital communication tool in our current remote work environment. While organizations’ email services were traditionally provided on-premises, there has been a rapid, widespread migration to cloud email platforms like Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace to accommodate remote workers, cut costs and increase operational efficiency. There are currently over 200 million users actively subscribed to Microsoft 365 for email and collaboration services - a pretty incredible number given that only four years ago Gartner reported that 90% of companies worldwide were still using on-premises email.
How to identify and avoid holiday phishing scams
Phishing attacks are in hyperdrive this holiday season. Cybercriminals know that users are distracted and stressed by holiday shopping and preparations - and are taking advantage of this hectic time to lure employees into unknowingly giving up sensitive credentials which can be used to gain access to confidential business information. Although phishing attacks spike during this festive time each year, holiday phishing risk has been heightened due to the recent increase in remote workers, the proliferation of inherently vulnerable and frequently misconfigured cloud platforms and widespread anxiety surrounding the pandemic.
How to prevent and recover from ransomware
Imagine this scenario: Your corporate systems are down and your critical files are locked due to one of everyone’s worst nightmares - a ransomware attack. You’re scrambling to recover your data, get back online and resume business operations as quickly as possible to minimize costly downtime and uphold your company’s reputation. 
How To Recover from a Phishing Attack
Do you suspect that you’ve fallen victim to a phishing attack? Are concerned with the impact that it may have on your business, your productivity, and your reputation - but are unsure of how to proceed? Who should you call? Have critical email accounts or has sensitive financial information been compromised? 
In this paradigm shift for business driven by the rapid transition to a remote workforce, there appears to be a real need for a shift in securing the digital premise in order to maintain, or even enhance, business continuity and success. AT&T Cybersecurity researchers have cited a “relationship between business success and a commitment to strong security”, reporting that 91% of companies that lag in cybersecurity miss revenue goals, while 57% of companies that lead in this increasingly critical area exceed revenue goals by over seven percent.
