EMAIL SECURITY – MIMECAST

Email is integral to our work culture, however suspicious or unsolicited emails can be used to steal your electronic identity, compromise personal information or cause malicious intent.

As email attacks become more sophisticated and increase in regularity, the University has become a target for cyber threats. To mitigate risk, we have implemented the Griffith email security system, Mimecast to improve protection against spam, junk email and messages containing suspicious content. Mimecast uses four key features:

  1. Spam Digest
  2. Impersonation (Whaling) Protect
  3. URL Protect
  4. Attachment Security
