Data Loss Prevention

Protect Against Data Loss

Employees, partners, and customers share information every day as part of the normal communications and business workflow. Yet when sensitive information is shared across digital channels without safeguards, there is risk that it may fall into the hands of unauthorized recipients or even cyber criminals – in violation of corporate policy and with potentially catastrophic consequences.

There is a need to safeguard social media postings and other digital communications against deliberate or accidental disclosures of confidential or personally identifiable information in violation of law or various privacy regulations. These types of information are often the targets of insider theft and misuse, but also the focus of cyber-criminals who can exploit such information for high value on the dark web.

  • Sensitive Information - Pre-released financial results or product information, M & A activity, partnership agreements, intellectual property, patents & trade secrets all represent examples of sensitive information that needs to be protected from deliberate or accidental disclosure.
  • Data Privacy & Personally Identifiable Information – Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, health records, are all examples of personally identifiable information (PII) that should never be shared on public social media sites, or even in “private” conversations on digital channels without adequate security precautions that satisfy the various data privacy regulations in force around the world, PII, PHI, GDPR.
