Secure messaging

While it’s no surprise that the pandemic has accelerated the need for digital communication across many sectors, often this was done in haste and with considerable risk. That’s because the explosion of digital communications in recent times has typically left security behind, exposing vulnerabilities and putting sensitive data at risk. In many cases the communication method being used is not even GDPR compliant.

When data is not secure, external and internal threats increase

Sending information digitally without proper security measures in place can make your network and data more vulnerable to external threats, as well as those from the inside. But more often than not, it’s not a disgruntled employee that causes the most harm to your organisation, but accidental mistakes made by staff.

Most of us have emailed the wrong person occasionally, or perhaps even attached an incorrect file. Sometimes these incidents can be relatively harmless, but often they can lead to costly data breaches. And these human error mistakes consistently account for over 80% of reported data leaks worldwide. That’s why the best place to start when enabling digital communications is securing your outbound email with tools that already fit your way of working and are designed to prevent human error data leaks.
