We often think of malware as being designed to sit beneath the radar, collecting data in stealth mode, for the purposes of fraud or corporate espionage. Increasingly however, we’re witnessing attacks on corporations designed to cause substantial economic losses via wholesale destruction. For example, the Shamoon malware that recently hit Saudi Arabia-based Aramco (the world’s largest oil company) and RasGas (a Qatar-based gas company) corrupted files on tens of thousands of workstations, overwriting the Master Boot Records.
These malware attacks, which may well have targeted website vulnerabilities, resulted in destruction on an industrial scale. At Aramco, IT professionals were forced to replace 30,000 PCs and laptops. RasGas meanwhile, had to shut down all email communications, and the company’s website was forced offline.
From the moment an email inquiry reaches your company, the clock is ticking. Read this white paper to learn effective email communication techniques, keeping your customers and prospects engaged with your organization.
Email has become today's most mission-critical communication channel. Each and every day, 800 million business users worldwide use email during the course of their work day and about 80 percent of a company's intellectual property passes though its email server. Email is a vital component of both internal communication between employees and external communication with customers and business partners. It has become such an integral part of normal day-to-day business operations that most companies simply cannot function without it: when email stops, your ability to conduct business also stops.
