As per a recent report published by specialist insurer Beazley, there has been observed a great hike in the business email attacks in the second quarter of this year. The report clearly indicates that the organizations using Office 365 were on the hit list of such attacks.
According to the data released by Breach Response (BBR) Services team in the second quarter of this year, 23% of the industries from various sectors were attacked through their business emails. The business emails have become the easiest medium for the hackers. That’s because once an email account gets compromised they can have the access to almost all the accounts being used by a particular organization.
Such attacks came into the limelight since 2017 and are continuously soaring this year as well. Business email compromise can be prevented by adopting two-factor authentication for all the emails. Making the employees aware of this authentication should be an integral part of the employee training. Another factor that can help to avoid the occurrence of this attack is to modify the permission settings of the third-party applications and disabling them to access Office 365 installed on your device.
