Preventing Email Errors From Leading to Lawsuits

Data breach litigation is the new PPI – and outbound email is revolving door for claims!We’re moving into a new era of data protection: with class action lawsuits becoming an inevitable and costly outcome of almost every data breach. In fact, as reports hit the headlines of personal data exposed to unauthorised access, law firms specialising in group litigation are simultaneously creating webpages to cater to for data subjects looking for recompense.

Against this backdrop, 93% of organisations have experienced data loss via outbound email in the last 12 month, at an average rate of one incident every 12 working hours.
