If Your Business Could Talk, It’d Complain About Spam

If Your Business Could Talk, It’d Complain About Spam

Chances are, you’ve heard of spam, but many don’t know how to identify it in the first place, let alone work around it. Frankly, spam can cause some serious damage to your business if not properly dealt with. In today’s blog, you’ll learn what makes spam, “spam,” and how you can keep it from infecting your inbox.

Understanding Spam
Simply put, spam is any message sent to cause harm to your business, either by wasting time and resources, or by doing much worse. Generally found as an email message, spam can also infect your systems through social media messaging platforms (despite the high levels of defense these platforms have). As mentioned before, spam can be dangerous, and is often annoying--often both at the same time.

What Causes Spam
Unfortunately, there isn’t much that can be done to avoid spam, other than trying to operate without email. Spam can infiltrate your email via inclusion into a database, a subscription to one piece of content that provides you with emails from other services. Whatever the method, you are likely struggling with a spam problem, or could be very soon.

Other varieties of spam are delivered through a malicious link or downloaded attachment. These are especially likely to be a risk to your systems, as they are pushing for immediate action, often to download and install viruses and malware.

Protecting Your Inbox From Spam
Fortunately, there are a few ways you can foil spam and keep it from infiltrating your inbox. First, make sure you unsubscribe from any email correspondence you no longer want. Most legitimate newsletters and similar pieces of content include a link that will allow you to unsubscribe, usually at the footer of their message to you. Secondly, make sure you have an enterprise-level spam blocking solution in place. If a message even looks like spam, the spam blocker will keep it out of your inbox. That way, you will have to worry about spam considerably less.
