Stopping email data breaches: A reality for today or task for tomorrow
Hear Sudeep Venkatesh, Chief Product Officer at Egress and Steve Wright, former DPO of Bank of England and John Lewis discuss why, and how, well-intentioned employees cause data breaches when using email and how machine learning can prevent breaches and improve protection for shared data.
Guest speaker: Steve Wright
People cause data breaches every day. Often, without meaning to and the vast majority while using corporate email accounts.
This causes layers of complexity and compliance headaches for CISOs and their security teams, as they try to predict the unpredictable and anticipate incidents and detect incidents caused by well-intentioned employees. The staff member who has too many things to do and sends an email to the wrong person. Or the individual who feels they need to share information just to get their job done, thinking it’s more efficient not to apply email encryption or by using an unapproved channel.
For many, mitigating human error has been a task too far. However, the rise of AI and machine learning has started a new era for email security; one where it’s possible to detect abnormal security behaviour for individual employees and stop breaches before they happen. By joining you'll learn:
- Why, and how, well-intentioned employees cause data breaches when using email
- Why legacy static technology has failed to prevent email data breaches
- How machine learning can prevent breaches and improve protection for shared data
- How your organization can use machine learning to improve your email security
