June 2018 Email Data Loss Prevention

Data Loss/Leak Prevention

What is Data Loss Prevention (DLP)?

Data loss prevention (DLP) is a strategy for making sure that end users do not send sensitive or critical information outside the corporate network.


How can we stop data loss?

To start with, identifying the type of data you have  using GDPR guidelines is a good start. Once you have identified the data, we need to look at the ways the data could be lost or leaked from the business.

This blog is all about losing the data via email. This could be an employee sending the data or a virus transmitting it over email for instance.

To stop such data loss via email get in touch with one of our team to get your emails protected now.

How do Strobe IT protection emails again data loss?

As of the 28/06/2018, we have upgraded our spam filtering offering called “SpamSnake”. This system now has a DLP module in it to scan outgoing emails.

The system works on rules and patterns we create, and using these rules emails are then stopped and quarantined if they match. Once an email is quarantined we will be alerted to the issue so we can approach you about it.

Currently we have rules that cover the following types of data: –

  • Credit card number
  • Driving license
  • National insurance
  • Passport
  • etc…

We shall be adding to these all the time, but if you have a data requirement contact us letting us know so we can look at adding these for you too.
