There is a profound need for digital connectivity
The progenitors of the internet created and used email to facilitate the work that went into building and evolving the shared global resource that in these extraordinary times is connecting the world. That connection is made possible, in part, by the world-wide use of email. Email has proven to be the longest lasting digital communication channel, with the largest user base of any free or paid platform or product. What’s more, email is the first and most foundational source of identity on the internet. However, it is not without its difficulties—the email’s massive reach makes it a ripe target for bad actors seeking to deploy compromises and attacks on a global scale.
