Your confidential, regulated or business-critical data is constantly at risk of being lost. For example, it could be leaked from an unsecure location, or it might be sent to the wrong recipient in an email.

To prevent critical information from leaving your organization, you need data loss prevention (DLP).

No matter what some vendors claim, data loss prevention cannot be achieved by deploying a single piece of software. Rather, DLP is a process with two key steps.

What are they?

First, data loss prevention needs strong data security governance, including proper access controls. Without good governance, DLP would swiftly disrupt your business processes. It may lock down data in the name of security and deny access to users who need this data.
Second, data loss prevention requires that data be classified and tagged accurately. Otherwise, you won’t know which data loss protection strategies and policies to apply to which content. Relying on users to do this important task correctly and reliably is a recipe for disaster; you need an automated process that classifies and tags data consistently, based on clear taxonomies.
