CyberAttack 101: Everything You Need to Know

In this digital age, cyberattacks have become more common and problematic for businesses. This trend is mainly due to the amount of sensitive information organizations have that criminals exploit for personal and financial gain. Internet-based crime is one of the fastest-growing security threats in the United States, according to Statista. The University of North Georgia reports that 64% of companies have experienced web-based attacks, while 62% experienced phishing and social engineering attacks. The same potential impacts of a cyberattack include loss of credibility and customers and various costs for the victim organization. Over 90% of cyberattacks begin with an email, making robust email security-critical in preventing damaging attacks and data breach.
