How StepStone went from likely phishing target to building a human firewall

StepStone, one of the largest providers of job sites in the world, is present in 21 countries.

StepStone receives almost 10 million emails every month but the vast majority of these should be blocked, according to Serge Groven, Corporate IT Manager at the Group. “Approximately 70 to 75 percent of the e-mails should not be allowed through.”

There is the usual spam to contend with, but this was not the biggest issue for Groven: “We dealt with hundreds of phishing attempts every month. We were seeing sophisticated, well-targeted emails that seemed highly credible. For instance, emails in which someone poses as a customer manager requesting you to forward codes for gift cards, supposedly for a campaign. When they are in fact criminals that wanted to steal these codes.”
