Although you may feel safe, mail threats can occur at any time, for any type of organization. They may come from terrorist factions, homegrown extremists, or individuals with a grievance against a particular company. Mail screening is an essential part of an overall security plan that includes physical security and cyber security strategies to protect an organization’s staff, assets and reputation.
Yet, many security professionals battle complacency in their organizations and haven’t implemented adequate protection from mail threats.
A new survey from SoBran found almost one in three respondents in the SafeMail survey said they received at least one mail threat (including hazardous mail and hoaxes) and 13% received 3 or more threats.
