Taking Email Scammers to School
We hope you can join us online for this October 11 webinar, to be held from 1-2 p.m. ET.Register Now
Email risk is a reality for every educational institution, especially in the age of remote or hybrid learning. Cybercriminals exploit the inherent transparency in educational institutions — like open university directories — by using impersonation and social engineering to target the human layer of campuses: students, faculty, and staff.
The 2021 Verizon DBIR found that 50% of breaches in the Education sector involved social engineering. Around 80% of these social engineering breaches involved Pretexting as a tactic, which is heavily associated with Business Email Compromise.
With an attack surface that keeps increasing with every new semester, it’s vital for educational institutions to enact security processes and technologies that contain email risk.
- What types of targeted email attacks pose a real threat to educational institutions,
- Best practices that enable students, staff, and other stakeholders to communicate securely over email, and
- How to architect an email security stack that is effective and doesn’t duplicate what you’ve already paid for.
