Modified on Wed, 13 Mar 2024 at 08:36 AM

Using the DLP section

Data loss prevention (DLP) works with compliance and data sharing within the team. With the help of DLP, admins can scan user drive documents and are able to view shared documents and revoke access if necessary.

To view and search for the data in DLP, the admin must first define the compliance and sharing policies from the administration module and ensure it scans only the user drive and shows the results of users in that policy.

Compliance

  • Compliance is a part of Data Loss Protection (DLP), from where the admins can define the security categories
  • Go to Dashboard ➔ Administration ➔ Compliance

Data Control

The admin can add security compliance - PHI, HIPAA, PlI, PCI categories internally depending on complexity implemented with the organization domain. Including categories, the admin can add the subcategories to increase network security level for the company.

Data Control

  • If required, the admin can define their company compliance category including sub category
  • Go to Administration ➔ Compliance ➔ Click Add ➔ Click on ‘+’ icon to define your compliance

Data Control

  • Add title
  • Select category from the drop down menu
  • Select a regular expression for that particular sub category
  • Select the severity and priority.
  • Click “SAVE

Sharing

  • The admin should define three sharing rules - competition domain, whitelist domain, and personal domain
  • Go to Dashboard ➔ Administration ➔ Compliance
  • Competition Domain - The admin can define the competitor’s domain

Data Control

  • White-list Domain - The admin can define the domain name to share the data across

DLP

  • Personal Domain: The admin can define the personal domain name like as Gmail, Yahoo etc.

This way, the admin adds compliance and sharing policies, now these policies will be viewed and searched under DLP module.

The DLP module includes:

  • Policies
  • View
  • Search

  • Title: Name your policy to identify it later when you want to make changes quickly
  • Description: Short description of the policy (helpful for multiple admins)
  • Enabled: If you want the policy to be disabled for some time or to re-enable it, you can check/uncheck “enabled” option as shown above.
  • Valid Always: You can decide the validity of the policy with “validity always” button. Toggle if you want a policy for a stipulated time or a policy which is always applied.
  • Valid From and Valid To: If “valid always” is off, then you will have to provide the date range the policy. This way the admin won’t need to manually turn off the policy.
  • Check Category “Compliance”
  • Select Compliance from the drop down box (Admins can select compliance which they must define under the Administrator ➔ Compliance)
  • Policy type should be user based or OU based. If your policy type is user based, you will add single user or bulk user (import CSV) in the policy and for OU based you will be able to select your OU in Plurilock AI
