March – Fulcrum Group Webinar – 5 Steps For Improving Email Security
Date: Thursday, March 23rd, 10:00 am – 10:30 a.m. CST
Although email was invented all the way back in 1972 by Ray Tomlinson, a contractor for ARPANET, email didn’t become widely used until the 1990s (thanks to AOL, Prodigy, and CompuServe). One fact about email is that it was never meant to be a secure communication platform. Much of the underlying infrastructure for email remains the same even today. This lack of security makes email ripe for hackers and spammers as an attack vector.
Our webinar, 5 Steps for Improving Email Security, will help you ensure that your email communications are as secure as possible.
