Can’t stop, won’t stop: How to actually prevent email data breaches


Presentation Cyber Threat protection Theatre
CS Cyber Security

People cause data breaches every day. That simple statement hides layers of complexity, compliance issues, and stress for CISOs and their security teams. While we may be able to ‘logically’ explain malicious breaches by linking them to motivations such as financial gain, it’s often more difficult to understand and anticipate incidents caused by well-intentioned employees. The staff member who, for example, has too many things to do and sends an email to the wrong person. Or the person who feels they need to share information just to get their job done, choosing not to apply security or using unapproved channels.

This presentation will look at some of the most common ‘well-intentioned’ email data breaches and what technology can do to prevent incidents caused by employees when sharing sensitive data via email. In particular, the session will examine developments in machine learning and advanced DLP technologies that can determine the risk of a data breach in real time to prevent unauthorised disclosure and enforce security for assured compliance.

What you will takeaway from this session:

  • The most common email data breach incidents
  • How machine learning and advanced DLP technology can detect and prevent email data breaches
  • How to practically improve protection for sensitive data shared via email, including ensuring adoption by end users
  • What all of this means for security ROI
