Secure Your Organization’s Sensitive Information Over Email to Mitigate Human Error
Leveraging Automated Policy Enforcement and Anomaly Detection to Protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI)
The advent of CMMC means that leaks of controlled unclassified information (CUI) can now have devastating consequences, including the loss of multimillion-dollar contracts. This risk is particularly acute with low-level employees, contractors, and consultants, who often have access to CUI as part of their daily tasks and may not fully understand the sensitivity of the content they handle. The challenge lies in ensuring that every individual in every process across your organization is protected from inadvertently or intentionally sending CUI, every time.
The threat of CUI leaks stems from several sources. Human error, such as forwarding sensitive emails to unauthorized external recipients, is by far the most common issue, especially among new, busy, or low-level employees. Insider threats, where employees knowingly leak sensitive content due to personal grievances, monetary incentives, or external pressure, are another significant concern. Additionally, these employees may be particularly vulnerable to social engineering attacks, where threat actors manipulate individuals into divulging sensitive information.
To address these challenges, the Kiteworks Email Protection Gateway (EPG) offers a feature set designed to protect your organization’s CUI effectively.

Anomaly Detection: Proactive Alerting for Unusual Behavior and Potential Threats
Our anomaly detection feature sends alerts on violations or behavior deviations, such as sending a file to a location where you don’t do business. A continuous SIEM feed of the comprehensive Kiteworks audit log also allows you to quickly identify and respond to potential threats, further enhancing the security of your organization’s CUI.
With our comprehensive solution, you can mitigate the risks of insider threats and human error, ensuring that your organization’s CUI communications remain secure. By leveraging automated policy enforcement, a transparent gateway, corporate-wide coverage, a unified audit log, and anomaly detection, you can protect your organization’s CUI and thus protect your multimillion-dollar contracts.
