Do you know who that guy pictured above is? His name is John Podesta. And he had his email account hacked.
Why should you care? Well, he was chairman of Hillary Clinton’s ultimately unsuccessful presidential campaign.
Whether that hack, and the distribution of Podesta's email archive by WikiLeaks, helped change the result or not is up for debate, but it certainly didn't do Clinton's campaign any favours.
So you can see that email security matters.
The awfully nice fellows at Zix recently invited me to an online webinar, to talk to their customers about email security threats.
