Defending against email compromises

Phishing, attacks on email servers and business email compromise are all very real threats.

Yet email infrastructure often attracts less attention from security teams than other applications.

Despite the growth of other collaboration tools, including video conferencing and tools such as Slack and Teams, email remains central to most organisations’ operations. And, as statistics on phishing show, it can be a weak link in cybersecurity.

In this episode, Matt Bromiley, senior principal consultant at Mandiant and Stephen Reynolds, a director at Libraesva, discuss some of the recent threats affecting email, including vulnerabilities in Exchange Server, business email compromise, phishing, and how to defend against them all.
