What you'll learn

Email data breaches continue to rise. Recent research found that 93% of organisations have suffered an email data breach in the last 12 months. Most of these incidents are caused by simple human error such as misdirected email or attaching the wrong file. A problem exacerbated by COVID-19 and the associated increase in email volumes.

Can a zero-trust approach drive better email security?

Taking a zero-trust approach is often seen as a key principle of keeping data safe – it acknowledges that everyone poses a risk to sensitive data including staff within a business.

However, applying a zero-trust model inherently requires you to verify a user’s every move and this creates tension. Can the use of machine learning ease these tensions and make the applying of zero trust models non-intrusive and seamless?

Join guest speaker Joseph Blankenship, VP, and Research Director at Forrester and Sudeep Venkatesh, Chief Product Officer at Egress as they discuss these topics in detail.

During this webinar you will learn about:


Today's most common form of email data breaches and why all organisations are vulnerable.


How contextual machine learning offers a new form of 'zero-trust' email security.


The benefits to organisations of applying these principles not just to external but also internal threats.
