Data Loss Prevention
➡ Data loss prevention (DLP) is a strategy for making sure that end users do not send sensitive or critical information outside the corporate network. For example, if the important and sensitive files of the organization are sent to the outside or other unauthorized people, there can be a business impact. There can be negative impacts on the business by leaking sensitive data. So, to handle these problems, should we continue as an old technique without any policies, rules? Or, should we define rules and regulations and policies to keep the data loss problem. Nowadays, DLP solutions are used all over the world to manage sensitive data.
➡ I would like to explain about the DLP. In a DLP solution, data is classified as first and it is protected. In the classification stage, for example, if the Credit card number is included in the file, it is automatically classified by DLP and labelled as Social Security Number as automatically. At this time, Permissions can be applied to this file by using the DLP protection feature. Policies can be defined as for example, file can’t open by an unauthorized person, an authorized person can only open and read on this file, an unauthorized person can’t edit or copy, paste on this file, can’t forward to outside email and so on.
There are many solution vendors to provide a DLP solution. In this session, I’ll share the information protection features based on Microsoft DLP solution. It’s divided into five steps in this DLP program.
1️⃣ File classification is started as the first step. In this step, data will be classified as sensitive information is included or not on this file. This process is done as automatically.
2️⃣ After classification, the second step is labelling on classified files. If the sensitive data is included, it will be automatically labelled as Sensitive Data.
3️⃣ Protection stage will be started after classification and labelling. Firstly, technical needs to define protection policies and rules.
4️⃣ After protection, we can monitor the solution and file sharing case.
5️⃣ If a sensitive file is shared to unauthorized users, we can do revoke action from remote admin.
Some organizations are now using the local file servers. The files from file servers can be also protected by DLP solution configured by Scanning Servers. So, files can be uploaded on the cloud, file servers, and local drives. All files from anywhere can be protected by DLP solutions.
