5 Myths about DLP

Came across this slidedeck, through a Google Alert and wanted to pass it along.  While this is geared towards the Small to Medium sized business DLP is still important and should be implemented.

I would take some issue with “Myth 2 – Expensive Third Party Solution”.  In this myth they argue that “implementing a $100k software solution from Symantec or McAfee is impossible.”  While I would agree that the full solution of DLP from Symantec is expensive, you don’t have to buy the whole suite at one time, thus limiting the expense. What is the primary concern of your data?  Is it leaving the organization?  Then implement DLP at the Network level.  Concerned about data on endpoints? Then take a look at DLP on the endpoint.

One of the benefits of the Symantec solution is that it is very modular, only purchase what you are implementing now.
