The Email Security Pitfalls that Weaken Your Cybersecurity Posture

The “Seven CISOs You Meet in Hell” are the CISOs that fail to learn from history’s mistakes … who stay stuck in common cybersecurity pitfalls, instead of strengthening their cybersecurity posture.

Want to avoid cybersecurity hell?

Then join Area 1’s CSO, Blake Darché — a counterintelligence expert who worked at the NSA during the Great Recession — to learn about leading with a cloud-first strategy.

You’ll learn:

  • The seven email security pitfalls that worsen a company’s cybersecurity posture
  • Real examples of how Fortune 500 organizations use the cloud to avoid breaches that are common in their industries
  • How Google-like web crawling capabilities and small pattern predictions make preventing cyberattacks a reality, now

Cybercrime flourishes during recessions. Although recent PwC polling suggests that security won’t be first on 2020’s budget chopping blocks, morale is low — and you can seize the opportunity to lead now.

We Stop Phishing.


Phishing and BEC are the number 1 problems we're solving with Area 1, both internally and for our customers. The native capabilities of Gsuite and O365 just aren't there, so having something like Area 1 in place has been a huge benefit to reducing risk and increasing productivity.

The thing I like most about Area 1 Security is that they help you understand exactly what kind of threats are looming out there in the world ... you can educate your team on current and real time threats to watch out for.
