Overview

Data breaches caused by outbound email are prolific. In the last 12 months, 93% of organizations experienced security incidents where email use has put sensitive data at risk. And these are not one-off occurrences. In fact, an organization of just 250 employees experiences an average of 180 incidents every year that put sensitive data at risk. That's one every 12 working hours.

Viewed through this lens, it is not an understatement to say that legacy email DLP technologies have failed you.

Join this webcast to hear from Egress Chief Product Officer Sudeep Venkatesh and SANS Director of Emerging Security Trends, John Pescatore, as they discuss:

  •    The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on email security and remote working
  •    The limitations of static DLP technologies to prevent human-activated email data breaches
  •    How contextual machine learning mitigates risks email security risks
