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.
