5 Trending Topics on the Future of Email Security

Tessian Cloud Email Security intelligently prevents advanced email threats and protects against data loss, to strengthen email security and build smarter security cultures in modern enterprises.

When it comes to cybersecurity, protecting email inboxes should be of top concern. 88% of data breaches are caused by human error. Whether that’s accidental data loss from a misdirected email, or falling for a sophisticated and socially engineered phishing attack, employees remain susceptible to easy mistakes that can lead to huge problems. 

So how are companies staying one step ahead of the emergent email threats lurking around every corner? On November 2nd, Tessian is hosting its Fwd: Thinking Virtual Summit — Preparing for the next wave of email attacks. After several years of successful summits, both virtual and in-person, our goal remains the same. We’re bringing together CISOs, infosec leaders, and cybersecurity trailblazers to discuss and share the latest insights and strategic playbooks in email security. 

We have 5, 20-minute sessions planned with industry experts and this year’s lineup is shaping up to be one of our best yet. You won’t want to miss it. Here is a sneak peek of what we have in store for you: 

1. Beyond the gateway: Investigating threats that outsmart SEGs

In the first session of the day, we will put secure email gateways (SEGs) in the hot seat. What phishing attacks are getting past the traditional SEG? How are these threats sneaking through? Our guest speaker, Jules Corbin, Senior Information Security Manager at B. Riley Financial, has a few real-world examples of advanced threats that hit inboxes and why they are so hard to spot by humans and rule-based SEGs. Hosted by Tessian’s Ashley Bull, this session will highlight the must-have layers in your email security stack.   

2. Is Microsoft good enough? A critical examination

Speaking of layered security, our next session will focus on Microsoft and the native security features available with your cloud email provider. But is it enough? The 2023 Microsoft Threat Intelligence Cyber Signals report recommends AI-based phishing detection to enhance existing security, and training for employees to better spot BEC attacks in real-time. Tessian’s Bob Boyle and Nasuni’s Jason Patterson will discuss why Microsoft and Tessian are better together.

3. ROI of email security: Making the business case

Perhaps ROI is top of mind for every technology investment, but what do we really mean by that? What are the key metrics when assessing a complete cloud email security solution? Who do you need to convince when making a business case? Tessian’s CISO, Josh Yavor, will host this session and open his playbook for email security ROI. In conversation with Birkett Long’s David Bennett and Prosperity 24/7’s Marcus Bailey, they will discuss the nuances of this topic in different industries and roles.  In this session we will explore the financial and reputational benefits of a robust email security and an actionable template for convincing your team. 

4. AI-powered deception: How email hackers are using generative AI

Generative AI is a hot topic in almost every industry. But do you know how email hackers are using easy-to-access tools to craft deceptive email attacks at scale? Dan Linder, Senior Director of Data Science at Tessian will break it down in this AI-focused session. Joined by Guidepoint’s James Troutman and Arm’s Ram Ganeshanathan, the session will dive into the emergent threats that organizations are facing, from QR code phishing to voice cloning and how to harness the positive potential of AI.  

5. Keynote | Innovations in email security: What lies ahead 

Our last session and keynote of the day will feature Tessian’s Chief Product Officer,  Allen Lieberman and Ash Hunt, Global CISO at Apex Group. Throughout the event you will have heard about the changing attack landscape and evolving insider risk, so how are cybersecurity vendors innovating and staying one step ahead?  

Calling all forward thinkers, Fwd: Thinking is bound to be a thought starter. Register today for this free event. If you can’t make it live, the recording will be available to watch on-demand. See you there!
