OK, now let’s talk what comes after; the “How” to implement DLP part.
a next step, and at the risk of blowing my own horn, consider watching the
recording of a webcast I did on April 5 here. You’ll get recommendations on how to deal with issues that
are often overlooked in DLP deployments as well as some critical “how to” advice.
This I position as an antidote to the all-too-common and none-too-helpful “just
do it” approach to DLP advice. Because, on the path to DLP success, there are
two deadly pitfalls to watch out for:
first is in understanding where to start your data protection strategy using
DLP (and why). Where to start influences your program’s effectiveness compared
to how much risk you are hoping to eliminate from the business.
second pitfall is in understanding how to execute. The "how" may be
the most important part as it ultimately
determines how soon you will benefit from DLP and determines the amount of
resources that are required.
one of the pitfalls is hard enough, but trying to get through both on your own
is nearly impossible.
much of the historical “how” started with massive data-discovery projects,
which usually meant at least six-months of project consulting before any data
every DLP vendor has the same vision for how to make DLP work, so make sure
that you understand your vendor’s approach and agree with it.
