Automation was cited as a key factor for improving cyber resiliency in the latest IBM/Ponemon Cyber Resilient Organization Report. Here’s why:

Every Business Has Different Communication Patterns

Phishing defense is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. Every business is unique, with a unique flow of email traffic and level of risk for cyberattacks. Some businesses handle large amounts of external incoming emails, and some handle very little.

Cybercriminals are constantly stepping up their game.

2020 was a banner year for phishing, and 2021 will continue that trend. Bad actors know that they have to keep changing up their approach to successfully land a hit. In a challenging economy, even cybercriminals have to work a little bit harder. So they’re working hard to craft clever, convincing lures, like perfect dupes of major company communications, that slide right through average email security tools to trick users into interacting with them.

The 3 layers of defense that Graphus places between a phishing email and your business come in handy here to protect your business from the consequences of an email gateway that’s just not ready for the newest tricks that cybercriminals are using. Phish911 is important to defend against that because it makes it easy for your staffers to isolate and report suspicious messages, making sure that everyone feels like security is their job too.

Threat intelligence exposes security gaps

It’s not enough these days to be generally aware that cybersecurity challenges exist and that attacks from certain sources are possible. In today’s quickly evolving cybersecurity landscape, you need better data to face dangerous threats like precisely targeted, expertly crafted spear phishing threats.

You have a unique opportunity to get detailed, actionable threat intelligence with Graphus when you choose to include the Graphus Threat Intelligence add-on. When Graphus detects malicious or compromised IP and email addresses, URLs, and attachment hashes used in cyberattacks that target your email users, it notes the information that you need to see for more accurate defensive planning.

Automated cybersecurity solutions reduce both your incident risk and your incident recovery cost

The link between phishing and a data breach is obvious – 90% of cybersecurity incidents that end in a data breach start with a phishing email. Ransomware, password theft, business email compromise: all of these expensive and devastating incidents start with a phishing attempt. Human error is still the number one cause of a data breach, which means the most likely way for that phishing attempt to be successful is if a staffer sees it and clicks on it.

Reduce your chance of suffering a phishing-related cybersecurity incident by reducing the number of potential phishing emails that your staff sees. Graphus instantly puts powerful shields against phishing email in place, including TrustGraph, your first-line defender that automatically detects and quarantines dangerous emails like attempts to deliver ransomware that get through email platform security or an existing Secure Email Gateway (SEG). And if you do have a cybersecurity incident, automation saves you about 50% of the recovery cost.
