The Benefits of Secure Email Protection

The benefits of secure email protection

Secure email protection is crucial in the world today where cyber threats are increasing in frequency and sophistication. The risks to organisations of all sizes range from simple breaches to intrusion, full data theft, so it’s well worth securing your business across email as well as your wider IT systems.

The Importance of Secure Email Protection

Email is one of the most widely used communication channels, making it a prime target for cyber criminals. The potential risks associated with having unsecured email are huge, such as data breaches, financial losses, and reputational damage. Robust email security measures are vital to protect sensitive information and maintain compliance with data protection regulations.

Common Email Security Threats

There are numerous threats that secure email protection can mitigate, such as phishing attacks, malware infections, and unauthorised access to confidential data. The latest cyber breaches report from the UK Government showed that for the smallest UK businesses the cost of a security breach was in excess of £1,000 whilst for medium-sized and larger firms the cost of a breach was over £10,000.

Those figures are purely for the cost of breaches. Once there has been data theft, the figures ramp up considerably. A small firm data breach costs on average £6,940 whilst medium and large companies can see costs rise to over £40,000.
