80% of enterprise data exists in unstructured format - in the emails, attachments and documents we work with daily. This opens the door to significant risks, particularly as employees use email to send and receive sensitive information.
The UK Information Commissioner’s Office’s own trends show that data exposed to unauthorised access has been the top cause of reported security incidents in 2020, and recent research into this problem shows that the average organisation experiences an email data breach every 12 working hours. This problem is only growing, with an even greater reliance on email by employees during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hear from Steve Hill, Global Head of Technology, Cyber and Third Party Risk at Credit Suisse, and Kev Eley, VP of Enterprise Sales at Egress, as they discuss the risks that enterprises face from email, and the strategies you should be taking to prevent security incidents.
