Business email compromise – the wolf in sheep’s clothing

Securing email has become an indispensable aspect of modern cybersecurity strategy. As a primary communication channel, email is vulnerable to cyber threats such as phishing and malware. The concept of securing email revolves around ensuring the authenticity, integrity, and confidentiality of email communications. Robust security measures help organisations to protect sensitive data, prevent breaches, and maintain stakeholder trust.

Understanding the issue: The primary challenge with email lies in business email compromise (BEC). DataGr8’s approach to overcoming this problem is verification.  Akin to Truecaller, this involves verifying oneself with essential details such as name, surname, email address, and phone number, establishing trust in communication. However, reciprocity is crucial – both parties must undergo verification to ensure mutual trust.

DataGr8’s approach: DataGr8 swiftly implements this verification process for clients, ensuring authenticity in email exchanges. Once implemented, the solution allows clients to reject unverified emails outright or place them in a quarantine basket for further review. This proactive approach fosters a trusted email environment.

Implementation: Initial implementation takes 10 to 15 minutes, making it a quick and hassle-free process for an organisation’s email security enhancement.
