Mitigate against the risks of acquiring unwanted sensitive data on your network

The rising threat of unwanted sensitive data acquisition, the act of unintentionally receiving and storing critical information, is a ticking time bomb for data breaches. 

In a post-GDPR world, all government and public sector organisations are more aware than ever of the need to properly secure sensitive data and the consequences and financial penalties that breaches can cause. This paper explores the risks of sensitive data acquisition through the three most widely used digital business collaboration channels:

  • Email – receiving emails with sensitive information by mistake
  • Mobile – sensitive data transfers onto corporate networks via mobile devices
  • Internet – acquiring unwanted sensitive data via website downloads.

Download your copy and learn how to mitigate against the risks of acquiring unwanted sensitive data on your network.
