Top 5 E-Security Human Errors that Can Cause Pain for Professionals

October 25, 2021 / in Blog / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

In the annals of workplace mistakes, there is a hierarchy. At one level, there is the failure to make a fresh pot of coffee after finishing off the last carafe. Maybe one level up is when you decide that it’s a good idea to microwave (in the office kitchen at 10am) that leftover fish entrée you had last night.

Right Email, Wrong Recipient. No Problem. Recall The company travel agent, Leah, sometimes gets some really insightful inside information about her client company – sent to her accidentally. Fortunately, she is a trusted outside contractor and politely replies to her client, “I think you did not intend to send this to me.” Oops? All of that sensitive business information intended to go to Leah in accounting, instead went to the outside travel agent [...]

June 15, 2017 / in Blog, Encryption/Security / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

Why are you emailing your clients weblinks to documents? They’re not supposed to click on unknown links. It’s making them nervous. Even if you’re using popular apps like dropbox to share files, you can’t be sure your client will trust the link. Nor should they. They might think it’s a phishing scheme.

Pentagon Emails Used in Spoofing Scam

June 15, 2017 / in Blog, Encryption/Security / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

The Pentagon is the latest victim of an email spoofing campaign. Pentagon colleagues, partners and vendors are receiving fake emails that appear to be coming from Defense Security Service (DSS) employees. Cyber criminals are most likely trying to hack into company servers and then find a backdoor into the Pentagon server itself. Most business owners don’t know how easy it is to send a fake email that appears to come from a colleague, vendor or even a public figure. This is on [...]

Is All Privileged Client-Provider Email Cataloged by The US Government and Accessible by Request?

February 24, 2015 / in Blog, Encryption/Security / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO
