Business Case for DLP

In general terms, data loss involves the deliberate or accidental release of sensitive data pertaining to finances, customers, intellectual property and other confidential information. Sensitive data includes private and personally identifiable information that can be used to uniquely identify, locate or contact a single individual. The spectrum of data loss is vast enough to warrant several basic examples of this phenomenon:

  • A former employee absconding with millions of dollars in intellectual property via unsecured network.A consultant deliberately transmitting and releasing sensitive data about a well-known figure who happens to be a client or patient.
  • Information about an upcoming product being leaked via online social media outlets (Twitter, Facebook, etc).
  • The accidental leaking of sensitive information, including identification and bank account data for dozens or hundreds of employees.
  • Forwarding confidential data such as intellectual property and trade secrets to the wrong e-mail recipient.
  • Source code files for a company‚Äôs product being sent to a competitor.
  • Unsecured data being intercepted by malicious parties while being transmitted along an unsecured network.
  • These are just a few examples of how sensitive data can be accidentally or deliberately exposed over the course of its life span. The problem is further compounded by the growing availability of outlets in which employees and others can expose sensitive data. With a growing variety of social media outlets and other online avenues available, the issue of containing and preventing data loss becomes even more difficult.
