Enhancing Your Email Security

Implementing proactive security measures is essential for protecting the data in your mailbox

Protecting your mailbox is crucial to ensure cyber criminals cannot access any of your data. Email accounts often contain sensitive personal and business information that, if compromised, can lead to significant security breaches and financial losses. At CSCM, we recommend several key measures to enhance your email security, such as:

  • We recommend that you use strong, unique passwords for email accounts. Passwords should be complex, incorporating a mix of letters, numbers, and special characters, which should regularly be updated.
  • Enabling Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) will add an additional layer of protection too. MFA requires a second form of verification, such as a code sent to your phone, making it significantly harder for unauthorised users to gain access.
  • Be vigilant with email links and attachments. Phishing attacks are often disguised as legitimate emails, so always verify the sender’s identity before clicking on links or opening attachments. If an email looks suspicious, report to our team and delete this.

By implementing these measures, you can help enhance the security of your mailbox and protect sensitive data from cyber threats.
