With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it comes as no surprise that Egress’ Threat Intelligence team is starting to see an uptick in romance-based phishing attacks. In particular, they noted a staggering 43% increase in attacks impersonating well-established dating apps including Tinder and Hinge between January 1, 2024, until February 5, 2024, compared to 2023. This is only likely to increase as the day draws closer.

Account takeover (ATO) is a form of identity theft in which cybercriminals can send emails from a legitimate business account. Threat actors who have control of a business leader's inbox can request payments and confidential information from employees, knowing that they're likely to be more successful than if they had simply made a spoof email account. Unfortunately, ATO is on the rise. Statistics show that ATO cases have skyrocketed since 2019.

Microsoft 365 is the world's go-to productivity platform - but its native security technology is limited in its ability to stop outbound email data breaches. Outbound email is the leading cause of data loss across all industries and native Microsoft 365 security features aren't intelligent enough to protect you from human-activated data loss.
