Data Loss Prevention

Data loss can happen anytime, anywhere; whether from an employee sending data out with an e-mail message, or simply by plugging in a USB flash drive and copying the data. A typical scenario is a resigning employee copying company assets for personal or malicious use. Data leaks can come from:

  • Blogs
  • Desktops, for example CD drives, USB flash drives;
  • E-mail attachments;
  • FTP;
  • Instant messaging;
  • Smart phones, and
  • Webmail.

Laws that make your business liable for data protection, governance and privacy have made it even more essential that you plug the leaks.

  • Step 1 – Define your data types;
  • Step 2 – List all possible actions on that data;
  • Step 3 – Compile a policy, and
  • Step 4 – Speak with GWC today and we can work out a solution, with you, to protect your valuable company assets, confidential data and customer information from accidental and/or deliberate disclosure.
