About this talk

Since ransomware has been on the rise over the last year, the United States has seen more than 65,000 ransomware attacks1. It is one of the most active and profound threats facing organizations of any size today. 75% of ransomware attacks start with email phishing. With a simple click on an inconspicuous email or link, your organization can be crippled. A more effective way to combat ransomware is to shift left in attack chain and prevent attacks at the early stage before damage— protecting your email channel. You need to take a holistic, multi-layered approach. And authenticating email is one of the proactive actions you can take to help prevent the malware from arriving in your users’ inboxes.
