Phishing & Email Security

Phishing & Email Security

It is a myth that cyber criminals only target large or high profile organisations. Many cyber attacks prey on small and medium businesses assuming they have a lower level of security and quite often it is via business emails they breach network security.

With cyber attacks via email increasing every year it’s no surprise that Cythera have business owners from all over Australia and the Asia-Pacific region wanting to upgrade their ineffective anti-virus software to enhanced email security platforms.
