Our DLP Assessment service provides you with a better understanding of your organization’s current data leak risks and help identify opportunities to protect your sensitive data from loss or leakage.

Strategic Objectives

  • Understand customer’s requirements for protecting sensitive data.
  • Review current DLP tools and deployment for each key use case identified in customer’s environment.
  • Build an implementation roadmap to remediate the identified controls gaps, and design use cases and requirements for an enterprise DLP solution.

DLP Assessment approach

  • We meet with the key stakeholders of the organization to understand the high-risk data.
  • We review the current DLP implementation as per industry standards and best practices.
  • Gain an understanding of the current state, including challenges, and use cases.
  • Define a strategy and roadmap to deploy DLP solution across the customer’s environment.
