1 Indian firm paying Rs 8.2 cr for email-driven cyber attack

Indian organisations are among the most likely to be hit with a successful email attack, and those affected faced an average potential cost of over $1 million (approx Rs 8.2 crore) for their most expensive attack, a new report said on Thursday.

About 82 percent of the Indian organizations surveyed had fallen victim to at least one successful email attack in the last 12 months, according to IT security firm Barracuda Networks.

“Email-based attacks can be the initial access point for a wide range of cyber threats, including ransomware, information stealers, spyware, crypto mining, other malware, and more. It is not surprising that IT teams around the world don’t feel fully prepared to defend against many email-based threats,” said Parag Khurana, Country Manager, Barracuda Networks India.

“Growing awareness and understanding of email risks and the robust protection needed to stay safe will be key in keeping organisations and their employees protected in 2023 and beyond,” he added.

Moreover, the report said that the most widely email-borne security attacks reported in India were brand and company reputation damage (49 percent), hurt the reputation of the IT team (48 percent), and downtime and business disruption (43 percent).

Nearly 36 per cent of Indian organisations said that the cost of email-based attacks has risen dramatically over the last year.

Further, the report mentioned that about 32 per cent of Indian organisations have increased their spending in the past 12 months in improving their email security.

However, around 45 percent of Indian organisations feel underprepared to deal with email account takeover, closely followed by viruses and malware (38 percent), data loss (35 percent), and business email compromise (35 percent).

What is Firewall? A Firewall is a network security device that monitors and filters incoming and outgoing network traffic based on an organization's previously established security policies. At its most basic, a firewall is essentially the barrier that sits between a private internal network and the public Internet.


Secure your network at the gateway against threats such as intrusions, Viruses, Spyware, Worms, Trojans, Adware, Keyloggers, Malicious Mobile Code (MMC), and other dangerous applications for total protection in a convenient, affordable subscription-based service. Modern threats like web-based malware attacks, targeted attacks, application-layer attacks, and more have had a significantly negative effect on the threat landscape. In fact, more than 80% of all new malware and intrusion attempts are exploiting weaknesses in applications, as opposed to weaknesses in networking components and services. Stateful firewalls with simple packet filtering capabilities were efficient blocking unwanted applications as most applications met the port-protocol expectations. Administrators could promptly prevent an unsafe application from being accessed by users by blocking the associated ports and protocols.
