Information Security and DLP Systems

 

The quality of commercial information provides the necessary economic effect for the company, therefore it is important to protect critical data from illegal actions. This will enable the company to compete successfully in the market.

Information security (IS) is a state of an information system in which it is least susceptible to interference and damage from third parties. Data security also means managing the risks associated with the disclosure of information or the impact on hardware and software protection modules.

The security of information that is processed in an organization is a set of actions aimed at solving the problem of protecting the information environment within the company. At the same time, the information should not be limited in use and dynamic development for authorized persons.

 

Undoubtedly, the highest priority task of modern DLP systems is to detect and prevent leakage of confidential information. On average, 82% of threats to information resources of companies come from the actions of their own employees, either through negligence or deliberately.

The main advantages of DLP systems:

  • control over all channels of transmission of confidential information in electronic form, regularly used in the business of the company
  • detection of protected information precisely by its content (regardless of the storage format)
  • the ability to block leaks (suspension of sending emails, transferring files or writing to USB drives if these actions are contrary to the company's security policy)
  • investigation of incidents related to confidential information leaks
  • reduction of risks of direct and indirect financial losses due to leakage of business-critical information
  • reducing costs and increasing the efficiency of internal investigations of information and economic security incidents, as well as information security audits
  • increasing the level of trust of customers and partners
  • increasing the level of corporate business ethics in external and internal information exchange of electronic messages
  • ensuring confidence in reliable protection of confidential information
