Applying OpenPGP encryption to a file containing credit card numbers

In Part 1, we showed you how to configure DLP on a group directory in order to detect uploaded files that contained credit card numbers. Then in Part 2, we laid out the steps for sending an automatic email notification whenever such files were detected.

If you followed the steps in Part 1, then you should now have a DLP-enabled group. That group directory will have the capability to detect files stored in it that contain certain credit card numbers. If a member of that group attempts to download such a file, the server will prevent the download from taking place and fire a "DLP rule matched" event. In the screenshot below, a user is prevented by JSCAPE's DLP from downloading a file containing MasterCard numbers.

In fact, Ponemon's "2013 Cost of Data Breach Study: Global Analysis" revealed that an astounding 35% of data security breaches in 2012 were simply caused by negligent employees or contractors. In a file transfer server, where multiple users can share a single folder, such incidents can easily happen.

One of the reasons why our clients love Triggers is because this feature makes it so easy to set up unmanned, automated file transfers that run overnight or over the weekend. But sometimes, you'll want to specify more than just a schedule. One particular client, for example, wanted to restrict a scheduled download to a certain set of files, which he wanted to specify using a regular expression or regex. This post details the steps we recommended for him to achieve that.
