How to protect your customers and your brand this Black Friday and holiday season
2020 has changed the way we live, work and shop, and with the global pandemic, online spending has accelerated even further. While online shopping is convenient, it comes with increased risks to you, your employees, customers, partners and your company brand. Cyber criminals are opportunistic and have used e-commerce – as well as COVID lures – to trick employees into clicking on bad links.
Brand impersonation attacks that exploit your good name to compromise employees and customers are devastating. They destroy trust, are extremely difficult to uncover and are even harder to shut down. And, unfortunately, they’re all too easy for criminals to create. Even unsophisticated attackers can register domains that look like yours and use your brand as bait to target the people who trust it. They’ll even clone your Web site to steal credentials, personal information and money.
The problem is that these activities happen “in the wild”, or beyond your organisation’s perimeter. Gateway defences help protect your own organisation, but they can’t protect your customers and employees. DMARC can help, but it is only effective against domains you own. It’s no longer enough to protect just what’s yours. It’s time to move from defence to offence with a pervasive cyber security approach.
In the lead-up to Black Friday and the holiday shopping season, Mimecast, in partnership with ITWeb, invites you to a topical webinar to examine the risks facing you and your online customers, and how to mitigate them.
Discover how to safeguard your brand from cyber criminals with end-to-end phishing, impersonation and brand exploit protection.
Learn how to block brand attacks before they can launch and stop live attacks in their tracks with Mimecast Brand Exploit Protect. This innovative service uses a combination of machine learning and quadrillions of targeted scans to identify even unknown attack patterns at an early stage, blocking compromised assets before they become live attacks. When active attacks are discovered, they can be remediated quickly to minimise damage.
Combined with full DMARC visibility, reporting and enforcement, Mimecast helps you protect against the malicious use of your owned domains as well as spoofed domains you don’t own, covering both external targets as well as your own organisation and employees. That’s end-to-end e-mail and brand exploit protection from a single, trusted leader in the market.
