This is not the first attack nor will it be the last. There are people out there who are relentlessly trying to pry confidential information from your system of networks and messages.

There’s not a silver bullet to solve these problems, but you have to review all potential areas that data can leak out – and plug those holes with the right technology, like Biscom Secure File Transfer, which can help keep your confidential information secure when you share it with someone outside your organization.
