Email Security for the Data-Driven World of Financial Services

Tessian’s Human Layer Security platform helps financial services organizations prevent targeted inbound email attacks and external data loss, while assisting with key financial regulatory compliance requirements.



Is Financial Services Doing Enough to Protect Sensitive Email Information?

Due to the highly sensitive data with which they operate, financial services is also one of the most regulated industries and they face serious financial and reputational consequences in the event of a data breach. And one of the biggest challenges in protecting against data breaches is knowing that email information is being sent to the right people, and emails received by employees are free from malicious attacks.

However, financial services still sees its share of challenges:

  • Over 64% of financial service companies have 1,000+ sensitive files accessible to every employee (Varonis).
  • Financial Services spends the most time in the data breach lifecycle, 329 days and 233 days, respectively (IBM).
  • The average cost of a data breach is among the highest of any industry, at 5.85 million USD (IBM)

How Tessian Brings Human Layer Security to Financial Services

Detect and Prevent Sophisticated Inbound Email Attacks and Outbound Data Loss, Early in the Kill Chain

With Tessian’s Human Layer Security Platform, you can detect and prevent inbound attacks such as phishing and impersonation, as well as outbound data loss and exfiltration caused by employees on email. No DLP rules required. The platform also continuously drives employees toward secure email behavior through non-disruptive in-the-moment security training. 

Specifically, Tessian identifies all email anomalies including:

Defend Against Data Breaches

Detailed reporting and audit logs provide defensible proof against data breaches. If risk is identified, Tessian enables you to formally document all associated events such as exposure, owner, mitigation decisions and actions. 

  • Prevent breaches due to data exfiltration on email before they happen.
  • Get visibility into and quantify data breaches prevented due to data exfiltration and must-have insights to trend down the organization’s risks of data exfiltration.
  • Significantly reduce your security team’s investigation workload with automated intelligence behind security events detected by Tessian.

Easily Find and Report Insider Threats

Tessian’s Human Layer Risk Hub offers financial services organizations protection, training, and risk analytics all in one platform. It delivers a broad spectrum of risk analytics across inbound email threats and hard to solve problems such as accidental data loss, data exfiltration and advanced phishing attacks, with laser focus on the human layer.

  • Dynamic Cybersecurity Dashboards: Measure how actions impact human layer risk and present results to company executives and board members, as evidence of technology reducing risk, not simply reporting it.
  • Defensible Audit: Detailed reporting and audit logs provide defensible proof against data breaches.
  • Targeted Remediation: Make informed decisions and take the right interventions with intelligent mitigation action recommendations.

In-the-Moment Educational Warnings

Tessian warnings act as in-the-moment training for employees, continuously educating them about threats, reinforcing your policies, and nudging them toward safe email behavior. Automatically build individualized policies at scale to reduce high-risk email use and track trends in unsafe activity over time.

  • In-the-moment training educates and empowers users to build continuous email security awareness.
  • Risk will quickly trend downward as users learn more about security, becoming better at spotting inbound attacks and more careful when sending emails.
