The email security challenge for housing associations
Housing associations typically have a reduced number of security defences and internal security expertise than compared to their larger counterparts. If compromised, not only do they make easier prey but they are used as leverage in an attempt to retarget their original targets. Hackers launch their attacks from the legitimate compromised company, who are trusted by larger organisations, and as a result are more likely to be successful with social engineering tactics and bypassing many checks because they are legitimate organisations.
While Phishing remains the most popular attack vector, it’s equally dangerous cousin, Ransomware, has made headlines globally. Whilst we know prevention is better than a cure, how can you ensure you have enterprise grade technology with a limited security budget?
Grŵp Cynefin, a Housing Association that provides homes across the six North Wales and North Powys local authority areas, has met the threat head on.
