How to Secure Email with an Email Security Policy

What is Email Security?

Good security balances accessibility and workflow optimization with restrictive access that protects the company’s assets. However, email security also remains a top concern as cybercriminals grow emboldened by previous successes. While email is a convenient tool that accelerates communication, organizations need an email security policy. During the early months of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, researchers identified a 350 percent increase in phishing websites.

How to Secure Email

Use a Trusted Email Service: Most companies use an email service like Gmail or Outlook, the first one is easy. It’s a good first step, but saying “we use Gmail” doesn’t count as an email security policy with a SOC 2 auditor. Modern email services are essential to maintaining a safe email environment, which includes:

  • Regular updates
  • Improved phishing filters
  • Multi-factor authentication

Educate Your Users on Spotting Phishing Emails: Phishing is getting harder to spot. A security awareness training program that focuses on spotting phishing emails can reduce the likelihood of successful Phishing. Make sure to talk about some of the latest innovations in phishing, such as the business email compromise attack.

Get Smart About Attachments and Links: Attachments are the biggest ways that malware infects a system. Make sure your email security policy addresses them. Links are also dangerous. They are easy to spoof and may send a user to a legitimate-looking login page that collects credentials.
