Why You Need Email Security For Your Business

Take a minute to think about what would happen if a cybercriminal gained access to your inbox. What would they find?

They would be able to see all of your contacts, sensitive company data, personal information, passwords, etc. Are you willing to risk losing the confidentiality of these things?

If your answer is ‘no’ then you need to strongly consider getting email security because email hacking is extremely common and terribly damaging.

How Do Cybercriminals Access My Inbox?

We are all very accustomed to clicking links and downloading files from our email, and this makes it easy for cybercriminals to find access points to our inboxes. Some phishing attempts are more obvious and some are more sophisticated.

Obvious ones typically have these traits:

  • Spelling and grammar issues

  • Sense of urgency

  • Too good to be true

  • Asking you to click or download suspicious links or documents

  • Requesting personal information (logins, credentials, card numbers, etc.)

These traits are typically easily identifiable on most phishing emails, however, we've seen some very sophisticated ones that seem legitimate.

Spear-phishing and Whaling are types of phishing scams that target specific individuals and high-up positions. In these cases, more care is taken by the cybercriminal to falsely present themselves as a legitimate email. These are the ones that are harder detect.

One wrong click from you or one of your employees and your whole business could be at stake.


Luckily, Cyber Unit provides a great email protection plan that monitors incoming emails for malicious activity. If we detect something suspicious within the email, we will notify our client right away.

Email security could be the factor that saves a business or individual from a horrible breach which could be extremely costly, stressful, and damaging.
