As long as businesses keep sending and receiving emails, the bad guys will keep using them to try and attack the communication line of businesses.
Businesses rely on third-party applications to manage critical workflows and enhance productivity; but if they are not kept up to date then they become your weakest link and can cause you to fail to meet your GDPR obligations for managing cyber-risk.
