Cybersecurity attacks can cost corporations more than significant amounts of money – they can come with hidden costs like an increase in insurance premiums, operational disruption or destruction, lost value in customer relationships, and more (https://ibn.fm/oWoDG). It isn’t just small businesses that are vulnerable to attacks. In recent years, large corporations that devote significant effort in support of security are seeing just how vulnerable they can be to cyberattacks, many of which stem from hackers gaining entry through corporate emails.

Most recently, an email cyberattack was launched against Microsoft, by a group named Midnight Blizzard, a Russian state-sponsored actor also referred to as Nobelium. On January 12, Microsoft detected the attack which began in late November, compromising some of its corporate email accounts (https://ibn.fm/xwd1w). The hackers utilized a technique called a “password spray attack,” where a user uses a single common password against multiple accounts on the same application. According to reports, the hackers were targeting email accounts to obtain information about Midnight Blizzard.
