Presentation Title
3 Key Strategies to Help You Prevent the Next Big Data Breach

Email is under attack and we know that 95% of breaches start with a phishing email.

Without proper security measures in place, email represents one of the easiest ways for malware to “walk right in” the front door of your organization. With spear-phishing attacks on the rise, and users still falling prey to malicious email content, it’s time organizations include email security as part of their overall security posture before they become the unwitting victim.

So, how pervasive is the problem and what should you do about it?

Join Ben Adamson from Mimecast as he investigates the state of spear-phishing and outlines 3 key methods to effectively protect against spear-phishing and malware.
