First of all, the integration with a popular file hosting service is efficient for company employees. With LeaksID, they don't have to spend time retraining since they already know how to work with a familiar and comprehensible Google interface. This system will be especially helpful for law firms, companies involved in M&A deals, the healthcare sector, and screenwriters, as well as for other niche markets and government agencies. In these industries, any information leak threatens with multimillion losses and enormous reputational damage.
For example, let us recall the scandal with Mossack Fonseca, a major provider of offshore companies; its documents were leaked to the media in 2016. It turned out that among their users were leaders of 29 countries and billionaires from the Forbes list. After such a devastating blow to its reputation, the law firm could not recover and two years later announced its closure. Their clients also got compromised: after the publication of the documents, more than 150 investigations in 79 countries were opened on the facts of tax evasion and money laundering.
Most likely that if those who organized the data leak knew that they would be identified and discovered, they would abandon the whole idea. This is one of the key advantages of LeaksID: all users are aware that important information is protected by a solution that, in case of a leak, will identify its culprit. As a result, a culture of working with sensitive data based on a preventive effect is created: in organizations using LeaksID, the chance of leakage is minimized.
