E-mail accounts targeted by cybercriminals

Due to increased reports to the Bavarian State Office for Data Protection Supervision (BayLDA) of successful attacks on email accounts of Bavarian companies, the BayLDA has initiated another prevention audit in May 2022 as part of its strategy of random audits without any reason in order to raise awareness among responsible persons and to show concrete assistance for protection against this form of cybercrime.
