Join hashtag #MailSec and learn more about the dangers of targetted email attacks and how to prevent them.

Takedowns of large botnet rings in recent years have caused spam numbers to plummet. However, the drop in spam doesn’t make spammers any less dangerous. Spammers have now turned to targeted attacks to reach their victims. As targeted attacks and malware continue to expand and grow in number, and data breaches continue to rise, users and businesses of all sizes need to be aware of what to look out for, and how to protect proprietary information. No business is too big or too small to be a target.

 
Please join Symantec’s email security experts Ian McShane (@ianmcshane), Paul Murray (@paulsmurray), Matt Cooke (@mattcooke), Paul Wood (@paulowoody)  and Eric Schwake (@lombar77) next Thursday, January 10 at 11 am ET, to discuss targeted attacks and what can be done to prevent them from harming you or your business.  
 
Look forward to chatting!
