Information Protection & Data Leak Prevention

Guard Against Data Loss & Leakage

Protect Data

Information Assets

Information security has been a necessity ever since people realized that information assets had value. In modern times, computer systems allow for the storage and processing of large volumes of data that present rich targets to organized crime, foreign intelligence and opportunists. This is exactly the problem faced by organizations that conduct electronic financial transactions, in particular, credit card transactions. Customer credit card data has become a major target globally with well-resourced organized crime syndicates and freelancers eager to meet demand by hacking into the databases and computer networks of major businesses, particularly in the retail sector, to extract credit card data for financial gain. A simple internet search returns hundreds of rows of consumer credit card data offered as a sample of vast databases of stolen records.

Data encryption and control solutions focus on sensitive data, providing persistent protection throughout its lifecycle, wherever it resides. Information is protected at every moment—when it is created by an employee on a company laptop, shared with a business partner by e-mail, stored in an enterprise database, processed by an application, and accessed by a field employee on a mobile device. Data encryption and control solutions cover data center protection for databases, applications, and mainframes as well as endpoint protection for files and full disk encryption.

Prevent Information Leakage

Discover, Detect and Protect Sensitive Data

To combat this threat, the five major credit card brands have introduced various schemes requiring their partners to implement information security controls. The most recent evolution being the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Complying with the PCI DSS is a requirement for any organization that processes, transmits or stores credit card data. In fact the scope can even include third parties that provide service that could impact on another organization’s credit card processing systems.

SYLVERSYS Data Security solutions provide a unified platform with data encryption and granular access control capabilities that can be applied to databases, applications, mainframe environments, and individual files. By providing centralized management of keys, policies, and essential functions, data security solutions simplify administration, help ensure compliance, and maximize security.

Focus your security effort where it matters most—on your data. As the locations and diversity of your data repositories grow, so can the opportunity for attackers to find potential vulnerabilities in your apps, devices, storage, and network–and so does the likelihood of inadvertent disclosure of valuable information by trusted or disgruntled insiders. Yet not all data is created equal. Evaluate your organization’s data, classify it according to importance, and put rules in place to closely guard your most critical resources and information. And then implement Information Protection (IP) & Data Loss Prevention (DLP) strategies.

Our Data Security Professional Services experts can help you quantify risk and provide justification for improving security practices based on the value of your data and resources. In addition, we can help:

  • Develop customized data protection strategies.
  • Validate appropriate approaches and technologies.
  • Determine and recommend data usage policies and permissions.
  • Build and swiftly implement a DLP program that helps stop potential data loss.

Our Data Protection services help adequately classify, monitor, and protect data when at rest, in motion, or in use; within the enterprise and outside the enterprise. And our Data Security Professional Services are driving some of the largest implementations in the industry and include Data Protection Consulting services, such as Data Discovery and Classification, and Data Leak Prevention.

SYLVERSYS’ experienced experts can assist organizations throughout the entire lifecycle of an enterprise-wide DLP program, by providing customized consulting, delivery and support services.

Value

Why use it

Through a transparent security program, organizations can protect their intellectual property, comply with regulation and standards and raise their overall security posture, without affecting users’ privacy.

  • Discover: find out where the sensitive data is used (servers, desktops, laptops, databases, storage arrays, file shares).
  • Monitor: find out how the sensitive data is used
  • Protect: prevent leakage through email and Internet use.
  • Manage: enforce unified security policies

A DLP solution delivers a unified solution to discover, monitor and protect confidential data wherever it is stored or used. The solution automates the enforcement of policies designed to prevent the unauthorized loss of information. It scans emails and attachments for confidential information and, based on criteria established by the organization’s risk and audit group, issues the user with a warning and reports the incident or blocks the suspicious message from leaving the organization.

By implementing a DLP solution, organizations reduce both their risk profile and internal and external threats to customer data.

Services

What you get with it

A DLP solution can expose sensitive data in transit. By tracking the data in rest or intercepting data in motion, its originating source and its destination, the organisation can use this type of visibility to detect and stop advanced threats that reside on its network which may stem from external adversaries, but may also be attempted by malicious insiders to steal data. SYLVERSYS’ DLP experts have an unparalleled reputation in the DLP market, testimony to this is that SYLVERSYS has the highest level of competence in the IP and DLP areas globally, ensuring that you are served by the best of breed in the DLP market place; we offer consultation and implementation for DLP solutions, to assist organisations with the following objectives:

  • Enable visibility and expose data breaches as organisations – keeping the organisation data and reputation intact
  • Protect sensitive data against accidental data leakage
  • Build an inventory of critical and sensitive information
  • Automate data leakage prevention workflow
  • Enable process flow for detection of violations
  • Provide risk management capabilities
  • Ability to comply with the policies related to data classification and protection of data to fulfil compliance requirements.
  • Implement the Data Leakage Prevention tool throughout the organisation’s infrastructure
  • Establish policies and procedures to adhere to internal and external regulations
  • Control the distribution of Intellectual Property
  • Identify vulnerabilities, assess risk and mitigate exposure for data in motion, data in rest and data in use

Deliverables

How we run it

Every organization has sensitive data that must be secured. In fact, the volume of data that exists worldwide is doubling approximately every two years. While both consumers and businesses contribute to this exponential growth, there’s no question that organizations are facing a mounting challenge when it comes to protecting their sensitive data.

Protecting confidential information is a legal requirement and with the tightening of legal privacy regulations, striking a balance between trusting and risk beliefs becomes critical. SCI’s Information Protection (IP) and Data Leakage Prevention (DLP) services successfully helps enterprises manage business imperatives, deliver comprehensive protection that maximizes confidentiality, privacy, efficiency and performance.

Our IP and DLP services accounts for every conceivable methodology for insider and outsider attacks while providing complete visibility and iron-clad information and data leakage protection. Through our expertise, we help organizations through the following action plan

  • Categorize sensitive information assets (PII –Personally Identifiable Information, PHI –Protected Health Information,) critical to business with drivers such as legal and regulatory compliance, operational resilience and ROI.
  • Assess information risk when information is at rest, in motion or in use in any line of business.
  • Implement and deploy controls to achieve protection, digital rights, confidentiality and privacy to instill a privacy aware culture.
