"For many organizations, unsecured email represents the most prolific source of threats to the enterprise. And as the gateway for phishing and targeted attacks, these attacks can also be some of the most dangerous.

This whitepaper explains how organizations can encrypt email in a way that allows the business to continue to operate smoothly.

This white paper provides an overview of:

The threat to the enterprise from unsecured email;
Why email encryption mitigates these risks;
A guide for automated email encryption that keeps email user-friendly."

When Joe refers to analogue devices, he is generally referring to ISA99 / IEC 62443 Level 0 devices, i.e. the sensors and actuators required in any cyber physical system. The vulnerability of these devices is often ignored as the security measures required to protect them are not purely technical but also involve physical and personnel security aspects along with process security (both of the metrology and processing by the device, as well as configuration management and control issues over the lifecycle of analogue devices). The security situation is not helped by the simplistic application of the triad of security goals (confidentiality, integrity and availability) to cyber physical systems.

What’s more, organisations should also keep in mind that prevention alone is not enough; according to IBM, the average breach detection and containment times currently sits in the region of 280 days. In this time, it’s easy for cyber attackers to gain a foothold in an environment and quickly cause damage. “When developing a cyber security strategy, traditionally enterprises have focused on the threat prevention with little attention given to detection and often none to response,” said Martin Riley, director of managed security services at Bridewell Consulting.
