Email Security Spotlight Discussion: Identifying & Mitigating Hard-to-Detect BEC Threats
Cloud collaboration suites are critical to business success, but have become significant entry points for potential exploitation. Just as your team relies on email and collaboration tools to accomplish their goals, so too do sophisticated threat actors. And while the built-in security of such products has improved, attackers continue to find advanced techniques to subvert these defenses.
To move to a proactive, rather than reactive, security approach, Analysts recommend implementing additional security defense-in-depth capabilities. This includes AI/ML engines to identify hard-to-detect BEC threats, increasing security awareness for employees, understanding supplier risk, automating remediation, and integrating controls like email authentication and isolation.
