Emails are also safe at the port

Emails are also safe at the port

Date: 29/12/2020

More than 300 billion e-mails are sent every day in the world. 4.5 billion e-mail users send electronically from somewhere in the world to another place or into the country. These e-mails and other online communication channels are full of dangers. Protecting data and accounts such as malware, viruses, cyber attacks and so on has also become much, much more important than before.

Critical information targeted

Address fraud is one of those threats. Such attacks use a fake sender address. An e-mail requesting some kind of personal data can even be sent from the COMPANY's CEO or doctor's practice.

It is also possible that the account will be hijacked by a hacker. When the account is checked, personal information requests such as passwords or social security numbers are made with a well-known e-mail recently. Messages with threats to close the account are also being sent.

Taking precautions at DP World

DP World Yarımca has also put in place many measures to prevent these e-mail forgeries. Awareness of suspicious emails is regularly checked and the response trend is followed. In 2020, hundreds of e-mails were sent to users and related trainings were also forwarded to users. Every level in the field of security was addressed and the risks were eliminated. In addition, the security engine continuously monitors and reports any abnormal activity.  Suspicious emails and attachments are blocked or quarantined by a malware protection system. Each e-mail is analyzed and scanned in depth with up-to-date signatures.
