High risk

Very high risk, encrypting, using steg, emailing from company PC - massive digital trail.

Was security such that personal mobile phones were not allowed on site? ..As taking a few photos of information is a lot less risky (though downside is later using OCR and potentially manually fixing of faulty conversion to get the data back unless purchaser is OK just with the photos)

So many companies lock down & audit machines massively but seem to forget that the majority of their employees carry a device in their pocket with ability to easily, rapidly and subtly take lots of decent quality photos of sensitive data.
