DLP Strategy Service

An effective DLP strategy looks at what data is considered sensitive, where it is located, how it moves in and out of the organization, and what are the risks of the data being stolen or compromised. The strategy will define the organization’s challenges and roadmap to address these challenges in order to reduce the risk of data leaks and achieve an effective data loss prevention program.

This enables you to prioritize your efforts and budget in order to reduce this risk. We will develop a high level DLP strategy to guide future project activities.
