DLP Info


Data Theft Prevention [DTP] | Data Security | Data Loss Prevention [DLP]

Use Cases: Use cases are a collection of scenarios where we would expect the Data Security tool in question to step in and prevent/ block the transaction from happening in order to protect the data. Use cases are typically part of a vendor/ tool comparison called a "Proof of Concept" (POC).

Testing use cases should give you visibility into;

  • Depth of protection & capabilities

  • Amount of Risk Reduction vs. Effort

  • Deployment and maintenance

Below is a use case scorecard broken into 2 sections DIM (Data In Motion) tests and DIU (Data In Use or Endpoint Client) tests.
