For more than four years, IDECSI has built a solid reputation by protecting email and Office 365 accounts for executives and employees of major international groups. IDECSI is often engaged as an expert on best practices for the protection of mailboxes, be that for executives, senior managers, their assistants, employees managing sensitive information (HR, DOFA, IT, security, …), and the wider employee base.
The first rules are basic and critical, but all too often are not followed today.
Some less well-known good practices can help secure against important security threats:
Executive assistants are a high-risk population, similar to the individuals they support. Assistants often have access to several mailboxes, potentially making them an even more attractive target for hackers. In general, executive assistants must protect themselves in the same way as the executives, following the best practice in this post.
For senior staff, it is also important to ensure that mailbox delegations are well managed:
These tips significantly reduce email security risk for all employees and executives of the company.
In general, the more entry points there are to critical data, in this case mailboxes, the wider the area of exposure. For each entry point – delegation, rule, service account, etc – companies should consider the real need for that exposure. When the need is legitimate, it is then a question of protecting this access point.
With IDECSI, we invite you to go further in securing your email and Office 365.
