Hi,

The full solution would be the following steps, you shall consider the
management and tool both to mitigate the risk:

1. Identify what information is sensitive to your company and classify them;
2. assign responsiblities to the owner, custodian and user of the
information. The example of owner's responsibilities as below:
a. define the classification of the information
b. define who can access those information by default
c. define the application and approval procedure if others want to
access infomation
d. define the delivery, retention and storage requirement for those
classified information.

3. And CEO/CIO shall assign the sercurity officer to be responsible
for defining security pollicies, conduct security audit regularly

4. Define the access control policies based on the clause b in section
2 mentioned above.

5. Find a proper DLP tool to deploy. The best commercial tool is
Symantec DLP, the best one based Garner magic quadrant (other tool
vendor include EMC, Websense, RSA, etc).

6. Define the policies of the DLP tool based on the access control
policy and access list generated during step 1 to 4.


Please be aware,  DLP tool is after-event prevention solution. It
means, only somebody is trying to steal your information then DLP tool
can identify, log, warn and prevent the action. The tool cannot
prevent all leakage channels. The steps 1 - 4 are security policies to
mitigate the risk prior to the case really happens by clarifying
security responsibilities and access control policies.

If you need more detailed information, don't hesitate to contact me.
