Why Cyber Insurance Professionals Need To Understand Email Security
75% of organizations worldwide reported an attempted business email compromise (BEC) attack last year.
Cyber attackers often gain access to sensitive information, such as financial data, passwords, and personal information, through email security breaches. The consequences of a successful attack can be severe, leading to reputational damage, legal liability, and financial loss for your clients. By having a strong grasp of email security trends and best practices, cyber insurance professionals can evaluate their clients’ cyber hygiene posture and provide valuable guidance to help them select the appropriate insurance policy and vendor for their business.
Email Security Masterclass Learning Objectives:
- Identify & explain key trends relating to email security & BEC attacks.
- Give examples of best practices that your insureds should follow to mitigate the impact of attacks via emails; apply these to evaluate their cyber hygiene.
- Explain what a catch rate is, how the cost of remaining risk is calculated and what these metrics can tell us about the efficiency of your insureds’ email security vendors.
