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.

A large share of all data security breach incidents involve non-malicious company insiders. 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.

Exploring Regular Expressions in DLP

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Fri, Apr 13, 2012 @ 01:20 PM
