Do you want to control more carefully your employees’ activity and channels of communication which they use while working? Do you suspect that somebody leaks your sensitive data to unknown person? Don’t know where to begin? In this article, we will talk about the DLP-system implementation stages.
Stages of the DLP-system implementation:
Step 1. On this stage, the company defines why it needs DLP-system and what business segment should be protected. For example, the company suspects that somebody from development department sends sensitive information to third parties, then the company needs DLP-system to track communication processes and documents transmission and control employees in this segment.
Step 2. When the goal is set and business segment is determined, the company has to consider the situation in detail. On this stage, tactics and strategy of safeguarding are developed:
Step 3. When tactics and strategy are developed, the plan can be implemented. After the launch of SecureTower trial version is agreed on, our specialists will help you to install agents on users’ computers and configure the system according to parameters defined in step 2.
Step 4. The testing period often lasts 30 days. During that time, the agents store a great amount of information that shows the whole picture of what is going on in the company. Namely:
You can configure DLP-system SecureTower to simply track correspondence or to get the whole picture of what is happening in the company by using video monitoring, keylogger, and other tools.
Step 5. The company gets the results of test usage of the system. Often the picture that the DLP-system shows (what is going on in the company, how do the employees work) differs dramatically from what the chief thinks about it. Using SecureTower, the company can observe the employees’ working process in every single detail, their interactions with each other and clients. On this stage, the CEO of the company decides whether it is reasonable to use the system further.
Even if the company cannot use the DLP-system further, it has all information collected during test period at its disposal. It can be exported and used outside the system as statistics data to control and enhance the effectiveness or as evidence base of incidents occurred.
