Data loss prevention tools: Understanding your options

Today's complex IT environments and business processes have created near-impossible scenarios for successfully monitoring and securing data. Data loss prevention (DLP) tools can ease an organization's data protection pain points, but they are only effective if they are chosen, executed, and managed appropriately.

In this video, information security expert Kevin Beaver offers a primer on DLP best practices based on real-world experiences with the technology. Beaver speaks specifically to the importance of understanding what data is at risk, choosing the most effective data loss prevention tools to fit your needs, avoiding common mistakes and pitfalls with DLP implementation and knowing what areas and data types are most important to focus on once the DLP system is in place.
