80% of 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.

Webinar Summary

Egress 10.03 How you can prevent data loss

Wednesday 10th March

Event Timings:

GMT: 2pm - 3pm


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 Tony Pepper, CEO, Egress and Kathryn Cardose, Head of Cyber Operations at Virgin Money as they discuss the risks that enterprises face from email, and the strategies you should be taking to prevent security incidents.

Join this webinar to learn:

  • How to identify and map the operational and other risks in your organisation, especially those linked to email use
  • What are the threats and what has been the impact of COVID-19 and remote working on email security
  • Key considerations for remediating risks to unstructured data, including technological controls

Format: 45 minute presentation, 15 minute live audience Q&A
