Why is Email Security Important?

We all use email on a daily basis. It is a communication tool that businesses rely on and it’s imperative to implement various security measures to protect your business, while also providing confidentiality and integrity. Without the proper security measure, unauthorized individuals can intercept and read your emails, potentially leading to data breaches or information leaks. Email security ensures that content of emails remains unchanged during transmission. Without it, malicious people can alter the content of emails, which can lead to misunderstandings, fraud, or other harmful consequences. This is crucial for preventing email spoofing, phishing attacks, and other forms of email fraud.
