2019 State of Email Security Report
Actionable steps to improve your organization’s email security and cyber resilience.
Healthcare faces unique cyber resilience challenges. The industry is targeted for the massive amounts of medical and personal information. And busy medical professionals frequently fall victim to phishing attacks or inadvertently commit careless errors that can lead to a breach.
Healthcare organizations around the world face the challenge of coordinating care between multiple parties while simultaneously protecting the personal health information of patients. And because the sale of medical records is so lucrative, healthcare is an attractive target for attackers.
Ransomware in healthcare is a top threat. By impeding critical patient care, attackers know there is a strong incentive for organizations to pay the ransom. But data breaches are caused by malicious or careless insiders as well – healthcare is the only industry where employees are the predominant cause of breaches. Without data leak prevention measures in place, your organization may expose patient data and risk substantial fines.
Mimecast provides a solution that gives organizations the ability to:
Prevent email-borne ransomware infections and other advanced attacks.
Encrypt mail messages and share attachments securely.
Eliminate email outages to maintain productivity.
Reduce cyber risk by improving security awareness.
Block malicious or inappropriate web activity.
Continue to send and receive email no matter what.
Even the most secure, well-planned email systems go down. With Mimecast C1, an immediate failover means email flow is not interrupted in the event of a mail server outage or planned maintenance. Mimecast keeps sending and receiving email, and gives employees access via Outlook, web, mobile and Mac when on-premises or cloud-based email systems go down.
Even the best employees can be maddeningly careless and resistant to change. Their casual mistakes can lead to disaster — and the cost can be staggering to your organization. Improve security culture with engaging content and advanced risk scoring.
While the majority of cyberattacks continue to be delivered through email, 91% of malware uses the web – and specifically DNS – to function once it lands. When combined, email and web represent the initiation point for 99% of successful breaches.
Block activity initiated by user action or malware and access to inappropriate websites. Enhance protection with fully integrated web and email security.
