According to the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre, “phishing attacks are one of the most prolific and effective forms of cyber attacks as criminals exploit data breaches, current affairs, seasonal events and social media to craft seemingly personal and legitimate emails.”
The Centre also advises that “data breaches are a recurrent theme in cyber security and are often not discovered or reported until long after the initial breach”. Because of this, even individuals and businesses who may not have been affected by a breach should be vigilant to the threat of phishing attacks.
What can your business do to protect itself?
These highly personalised attacks happen in a much smaller volume than traditional phishing, and typically they do not contain malicious attachments or links. Because of this, they can be very difficult to detect using existing email security solutions.
Secure email gateways can help, but there are thousands of threats that can easily bypass standard email filters. As a result, your email inboxes almost certainly contain dormant threats that could cost you time, money, and resources with just a single distracted click.
Don’t guess how many of these dormant threats are in your inboxes – find out for sure – for free!
Barracuda Email Threat Scanner is a free service that scans all your Office 365 emails and identifies these dormant threats without any impact on your system’s performance. Use it to:

- Prevent domain fraud by identifying domains that are at risk of spoofing and other fraud
- Identify high-risk employees who are most likely to be targeted by spear phishing and business email compromise attacks
