DLP Implementation

"Protecting customer data is much less expensive than dealing with a security breach in which records are exposed and potentially misused."

- Avivah Litan, Distinguished VP Analyst in Gartner Research

We will work with you to design a DLP implementation. Our methodology is modular and iterative in nature and can be customized based upon an organization’s current DLP program maturity level and objectives.

In this phase of the engagement, EC will perform the following activities:

  • Identification of stakeholders and information gathering sessions.
  • Review of current process followed across the business units globally.
  • Understand the organization, future model for offering DLP services to the business and scope of coverage for the enterprise.
  • Understand existing technology infrastructure, network architecture, endpoint security tools, web and email gateways, and other third-party products the organization intends to integrate with DLP.
  • Identification of gaps and opportunities.
  • Define future state plan.

Design and document a solution based on customers’ requirements. In this phase of the engagement, EC will perform the following activities:

  • Develop use cases and requirements for DLP solution.
  • Perform vendor analysis.
  • Create a technical architecture design.
  • Develop a detailed implementation plan including high-level architectural diagram.

In this phase of the engagement, EC will help with DLP solution deployment including detailed:

  • DLP Installation and Configuration Guide
  • Operations Guide
  • Business continuity planning guides
  • Test plans to prove solutions functionality
  • Policy/Rule testing and tuning

Our DLP Design and implementation engagement approaches key activities

Step 1
Gathering Requirements
Encryption Consulting will initially discuss customer DLP requirements with them. Normally, we conduct a requirement gathering workshop to collect all key stakeholder input.
Step 2
Document the use cases
Encryption Consulting will then document the use cases, requirements, proposed solution, and post deployment tests, and agree with the customer on the scope of work and price before commencing further work.
Step 3
The DLP solution will be designed based on the customer's requirements.
Step 4
Once the DLP implementation guide is completed, Encryption Consulting will help the customer deploy the solution. Encryption Consulting will either lead the deployment or do a hand holding.
Step 5
Encryption Consulting will work with the customer team to test the DLP solution to prove that the solution meets objectives and functions as designed.
Step 6
Testing and Tuning
Finally, Encryption Consulting will help the customer in Policy/Rule testing and tuning.
