Could it be that traditional file sharing software is no longer enough to protect against data breaches?

Data breach by PeoplePoint

According to the Irish Times article published 23rd January 2017, PeoplePoint the payroll service system for civil servants has encountered another data breach whereby personal data was sent to the incorrect recipient which in this case was a human resources official in a Government department. This is the third data breach of its kind to be reported at PeoplePoint.

It seems that while measures were obviously in place to mitigate data breaches by way of secure document transfer and encryption, this is only partial protection. So how can we protect ourselves against data breaches in the case of manual error and simply sending files to the wrong recipient, could it be that traditional file sharing software is no longer enough?
