Test Your Policies Using DLP Check

Data loss is a people problem. All it takes is a careless individual, compromised account, or malicious insider to put your data at risk. To safeguard sensitive data, you need to monitor how your users handle data across email, endpoint, cloud apps, web, and on-premises and cloud repositories. You must understand the contents of your data and prioritize your business-critical information. You can now use DLP Check to verify and test the functionality of your DLP solution.

Sample Data

In the realm of Data Loss Prevention (DLP), the use of sample data emerges as a critical requirement to be able to validate the efficacy and relevancy of your data protection policies. The collection of files available represent a small sample set you can use for testing purposes.

Download Files

The following files consist of randomly generated sample data that should trigger on the most common data match patterns. Included in the data are the following:

  • First and last names
  • Credit card numbers
  • Social security numbers
  • Postal codes
  • Addresses

Protecting against infiltration of data is just as important as monitoring for data exfiltration. Consider also creating and testing DLP policies that monitor for unauthorized data downloads.

File Uploads

File uploading is the primary method of data exfiltration in any organization. To maintain data confidentiality, it is important that you have a solid understanding of what kind of websites employees have access to and where they can upload data. It is unrealistic to imagine that any organization would disallow all websites associated with data transfer. Employees will always need to move data to and from the web. That is why having data loss prevention testing policies that look for sensitive content are vital.

Upload Files

You can test the efficacy of your upload policies by transferring data using the dialogue window below. There is no data stored, but it is still not recommended to use production data for testing purposes.

Click or drag files to this area to upload.You can upload up to 5 files.
To test and verify your DLP policy, submit your file. If it successfully posts, then your DLP policy is not configured to block.

Paste Data

Copy-and-paste operations may seem harmless and convenient. But they can actually pose a significant risk. In the wrong hands, copied content can be exfiltrated out of your organization undetected.

You can protect your digital presence by being cautious with copy-and-paste operations. Also, it’s important to double-check the accuracy and integrity of the content you transfer. Stay vigilant and safeguard the security and credibility of your website.
