DLP Implementation Service

A mature DLP program cannot depend solely on the DLP technology. To achieve the benefits of the DLP tool, it is important to develop a DLP governance program to oversee operations and to integrate within the organization’s broader cyber security strategy.

Our methodology is modular and iterative in nature and can be customized based upon an organization’s current DLP program maturity level and objectives.
