Data loss prevention (DLP) is a topic that’s on everyone’s minds. From a CIO accidentally sending out non-public information, to the intentional leaking of information from disgruntled employees, or even data that’s been extracted by hackers, data loss can come from any direction. Damage through data loss goes far beyond a just corporate embarrassment; several cases where data has been leaked have resulted in litigation, IT audits, public relations nightmares, and major losses in consumer confidence, stock value, and brand damage.
