Egress featuring IDC: Mitigating today’s human-activated email data breaches

Email represents the top security risk to organisations globally. People make mistakes - and productivity enablers like Outlook Autocomplete and access to email on mobile devices frequently open the door to accidental data loss.

Intelligent email security technologies that detect and prevent human error are an imperative part of any organizational security strategy. It is also imperative that these solutions integrate with and complement platforms such as MS Office 365.

Guest speaker, Chris Rodriguez, Research Manager at IDC and Sudeep Venkatesh, Chief Product Officer at Egress discuss today’s email-borne data security risks, address why they happen, and explore the role technology has in mitigating them.
