Grosvenor Law is a specialist personal and business dispute resolution firm based in Mayfair, London. They work on significant and complex disputes worldwide across a range of business sectors, on behalf of corporate clients and high net worth individuals.
Given the highly sensitive nature of the work performed and the client confidentiality requirements outlined by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, securing their email environment from human error is a key priority for the firm.
There has been an increasing number of high profile losses of confidential data in the legal sector in recent years and months. The Chief Executive of Grosvenor Law had already taken a number of measures to reduce the risk of inadvertent data loss over email, but chose to add to their existing risk management measures by working with Tessian given the unique machine learning intelligence of the system. The firm opted to use Guardian to prevent and detect misdirected emails, as well as Constructor to implement some of their own custom communication policies.
After some time, Tessian issued the Chief Executive with a report detailing the findings of how the software had successfully prevented misaddressed emails for Grosvenor Law. It also showed how Tessian’s machine learning algorithms had developed an understanding of the organization’s regular email patterns and behavior in order to accurately detect anomalies.
By having outgoing email content from their organization automatically checked by Tessian software, Grosvenor Law is able to protect their client data from one of the most common causes of data loss. They are also able to demonstrate diligence to clients and regulators that this risk is being measured and controlled.
Tessian is building the world’s first Human Layer Security platform to automatically secure all human-digital interactions within the enterprise. Today, our filters use stateful machine learning to protect people using email and to prevent threats like spear phishing, accidental data loss, data exfiltration and other non-compliant email activity.
