Perth and Kinross Council provides a wide range of local services and support to the community, including education, social work services, housing, planning, road maintenance, waste collection, and culture and leisure facilities. As a result, council staff routinely share information via email with a range of app
Given the potential sensitivity of the data being shared, the council recognised the need to take the necessary precautions to secure their confidential data.
Egress Protect is used by Perth and Kinross Council to enable its staff to send and receive encrypted emails across a varied network of third parties. The service allows users to revoke access to information in real time, even after it has reached the recipient’s mailbox. Users can also review detailed audit information for every email and control user’s actions – such as printing, forwarding, and copying and pasting – to make sure sensitive information is handled correctly. In response, recipients are able to receive and reply to encrypted emails completely free of charge, ensuring shared data is protected at all times.
Our mission is to eliminate the most complex cybersecurity challenge every organisation faces: insider risk. We understand that people get hacked, make mistakes, and break the rules. To prevent these human-activated breaches, we have built the only Human Layer Security platform that defends against inbound and outbound threats. Using patented contextual machine learning we detect and prevent abnormal human behaviour such as targeted phishing attacks, misdirected emails, and data exfiltration.
Used by the world’s biggest brands, Egress is private equity backed and has offices in London, New York, and Boston.
