Understanding the implications and options for remediation
Cyber-attacks targeting email accounts for businesses continue to rise, particularly for organizations using cloud email systems. More specifically, these compromises can lead to wire fraud, phishing of other internal employees or vendors, and most importantly exposure of sensitive data within the email environment.
And with the recent adoption of new privacy regulations like GDPR, time is of the essence when it comes to responding to these types of incidents. In addition to GDPR, managing the cost of an investigation can be a burden to an organization given the amount of unknown parts of an investigation.
In response to the many challenges that organizations are facing, KPMG has developed a platform that streamlines the collection, analysis and reporting for these investigations. This approach enables organizations to gain important insight quickly and at more predictable costs.
Let’s take a look at a common scenario...

After clicking the link, and entering her credentials, Andrea quickly realized she had been phished and her credentials had been stolen. Andrea contacted the help desk and they quickly reset her password helping remediate the situation.
