The pandemic has ushered in a paradigm shift in how businesses communicate with their customers. As organizations in healthcare, finance, and other highly regulated industries rely more heavily on email communication, their employees continue to send sensitive data such as medical and financial information through email.

Data leaks can occur in many ways, but the most common cause is insider threats from within the business. With the pandemic changing the way we do business, data leaks are on the rise. Recent reports indicate that businesses using Office 365 have seen a 67% increase in data leaks since March 2020. Data Leak Prevention (or Data Loss Prevention or DLP) is the practice of detecting and preventing the transmission of sensitive data outside of your network, and is a standard feature in SecurityGateway for Email Servers.

If you're a key decision maker in healthcare, government, finance, or any other highly regulated industry, how trusting are you of your employees to protect your company's most valuable asset - its data? Now that businesses have had over a year to adjust to remote work, they've had to put more trust in employees when it comes to the handling of personally identifiable information (PII) of their customers. This has led to a number of data breaches, HIPAA & GDPR violations, and many other incidents.
These key figures were reported earlier last year, and certainly by now these statistics have increased.
- Around 25% of email data breaches were caused by employees inappropriately sharing data
- Over 85% of employees are sending more emails as they continue to work from home
- About two-thirds of IT leaders have reported data leaks via email since the transition to remote work as a result of the pandemic
Data leaks can occur in many ways. The most common causes of data leaks are insider threats from within the business, hackers who have obtained access to compromised accounts, and users who fell victim to successful phishing and social engineering attacks.
