Preventing data leakage via email

Introduction

  • Most of the people that use email communication can confirm that at least once they have sent an email to the wrong recipient.

  • Such a mistake can be very damaging. Inappropriate jokes may be sent to a supervisor, financial reports may be sent to a competitor or a broker, love letter to the wrong man or woman.

  • An example of such incident was published on portfolio.com site on February 5th 2008: “One of Eli Lilly & Co.'s sub-contracted lawyers at Philadelphia based Pepper Hamilton had mistakenly emailed confidential Eli Lilly's discussions to Times reporter Alex Berenson (instead of Bradford Berenson, her co-counsel), costing Eli Lilly nearly $1 billion.”

Introduction (cont.)

  • Modern business activities rely on extensive email exchange. Email “wrong recipients” mistakes have become widespread, and the severe damage caused by such mistakes constitutes a disturbing problem both for organizations and for individuals.

  • Various solutions to this problem are continuously emerging, however there is still no “silver-bullet”  solution: many email addressing mistakes are not detected and in many cases correct recipients are wrongly marked as potential addressing mistake.

Hi-level system use-case

  • The user composes an e-mail and pushes “send” button.

  • The e-mail is sent for inspection and validation by the system.

  • In case non-valid recipients are detected, a list of non-valid recipients will be displayed to the user for confirmation whether to continue sending to the non-valid recipients or no.

  • Optionally - alist of additional suggested recipients for this e-mail will be displayed to the user.

  • Optionally - the user will be able to send the e-mail easily to any of the recipients from the suggested recipients list.

Main Challenges

  • Developing a system that can be relative easily adapted to any e-mail client.

  • Developing a server that can serve a plenty of clients simultaneously.

  • The delay in sending the e-mail should be linear to the e-mails’ size and not longer than half a minute.

  • Data Security

  • Modularity
