DLP Data Protection Compliance


Data leaks are a serious problem for organizations every-where and stealing very sensitive information is, all too often, as easy as copying data to a USB thumb drive and walk-ing out the door.

Intentional theft is just one aspect of the problem, however. Far more often, innocent and well-meaning employees lose very sensitive data stored on a laptop hard drive, a mobile phone or device, or a CD-ROM, which can be a very embar-rassing and costly mistake for your organization. News stories of companies and organizations that have compromised cus-tomers’ credit card data, private health records, or classified government information, are far too common.

Whether it’s a lost laptop (left in a taxi cab) or human error (posting sensitive data on a public Web site), the conse-quences of data leaks can be devastating for everyone involved. Naturally, you don’t want your organization to be the next big story — which is why you’re reading this book!
