The security industry has been highlighting the cybercriminal misuse of HTML for years — and evidence suggests it remains a successful and popular attack tool.
Last year Barracuda reported that around one-in-five (21%) of all HTML attachments scanned in May 2022 were malicious. A year on, that figure has more than doubled – 45.7% of scanned HTML files were found to be malicious a year later.

The precision engineering manufacturer Spectris needed to shift the focus of its employee training when many employees switched to working remotely due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Spectris’ CISO relied on KnowBe4’s security awareness training and simulated phishing platform to provide flexible and relevant simulated phishing tests and training to ensure a holistic and tailored approach to security awareness.
Attackers are quick to exploit new opportunities for attack. The reporting of the Log4J bug in December 2021, for example, is believed to have led to a 150% increase in exploit activity the following year.
However, attackers rely extensively on long established approaches and home in on weaknesses that have often also been around for years.

You may have heard the term Zero Trust doing the rounds. But what is it, and is it relevant to SMBs?
According to digital.com, “Zero trust isn’t a specific product, it’s a way of thinking about and constructing your security architecture, it operates on the idea that no one user, device, service, or programme is trusted inherently.”
With Zero Trust, you can provide seamless access to all levels of user, while maintaining strict authentication and verification to access particular SaaS applications, assets, data, or systems.
Is Zero Trust applicable to your business?
Zero Trust Access (ZTA) can increase security, productivity, and flexibility for your business. This recorded webinar from Barracuda shows how ZTA can be applied to:
Prevent unauthorised access to corporate resources and digital assets
Reduce your overall attack surface and risk of breaches
Secure the migration to a cloud-integrated infrastructure
Serve as the foundation of a successful SASE implementation
Improve remote access performance and employee productivity
You’ll see how Barracuda CloudGen Access secures SaaS applications, including Microsoft 365, and protects users from ransomware and other web threats.
