GDPR what does it mean ?

The Problem:

Having visibility and\or control over who can and can’t copy, send, attach your company’s data, and or client information to emails, or copy it to a usb drive, or even print it out and take a physical copy with them.

It also is becoming more prevalent due to the EU getting strict on GPDR rules and laws. These may be enforced in NZ at some stage but to date the govt hasn’t given any indication on this. Companies that trade with EU and or USA customers

A common enquiry we hear:

Are we able to see what a staff member has downloaded to their computer? The intent would be then getting this on USB or via personal email to take and use this information for personal use. Reason we ask is how do we protect ourselves when someone leaves, and they may take key information with them. We have someone leaving soon, and in the past an employee took client lists and contacts.


The Solution: DLP – Data Loss Prevention

So what is DLP?

DLP is a method of inspecting and keeping sensitive data from leaving the allowed perimeter. DLP systems are only concerned with the data passing over some kind of gateway device, such as through emails, usb drives, instant messages and Web 2.0 applications.

It can identify sensitive data like credit card info, and can be configured to monitor specific locations and\or data types.

DLP – Data Loss Prevention Agents. These are deployed to all machines that need protection and management. This means they can be controlled, restricted, and reported on.

The agent can be set to not be visible on the machine, so the end user can’t disable it.
