Email and Data Loss

Data loss prevention (DLP) should be a major concern for all companies, and one of the major conduits for the accidental or intentional leakage of data is enterprise email systems. There are many DLP models that can be put into place, including email encryption, rights management, email gateways and full-on DLP systems. Unfortunately, none of these approaches is bulletproof, and companies will have to perform a risk assessment to determine how much risk they can ensure relative to how much money they can spend to mitigate that risk. This report details the benefits and drawbacks of the different methods of preventing data loss through corporate email systems, and provides recommendations for making the right choice for your company.
