Compromised Account (Critical Anomaly) Incident for Phishing Emails Sent by Protected Users

Posted by jonathango on September, 6, 2022

A Critical Anomaly indicating a compromised account is now generated when protected users send internal or outgoing phishing/spam emails.

Detecting compromised accounts is key to prevent extensive damage to organizations.

A strong indicator for a compromised account are phishing/spam emails sent from this account to other internal users or external parties.

When Harmony Email & Collaboration detects such emails, it now does not only quarantine them, but also generates a compromised account (Critical Anomaly) event.

Administrators are then alerted and can act fast to prevent any damage from this user.
