One of the most under-appreciated aspects of DLP solutions is content discovery- scanning stored data to identify sensitive content, classify information, and (in some cases) even protect the data. Major DLP tools have long evolved past just scanning network traffic for credit card and Social Security Numbers.

Today I’m releasing a new whitepaper on the topic: DLP Content Discovery: Best Practices for Stored Data Discovery and Protection.

The paper covers features, best practices for deployment, and example use cases to give you an idea of how it works.

It’s my usual independent content, much of which started here as blog posts. Thanks to Symantec (Vontu) for Sponsoring and Chris Pepper for editing.
