Deploy Microsoft DLP fast

Deploy Microsoft DLP in your organisation with minimum hassle with our top tips and best practice guidance. Deep-dive into the difference between DLP and information protection to get the most out of Microsoft’s industry-leading compliance and security technology. 

The stakes are high when it comes to data protection – not only do you risk fines and reputational damage if sensitive data is lost, valuable company assets or IP could also be at risk of inadvertent or malicious data breach, resulting in loss of revenue or competitive advantage. 

The challenge for the IT team is that there isn’t a big switch labelled DLP that can be flicked to ‘ON’. There are stakeholders to engage, decisions to be made, policies to write and communications to users that must all be done correctly. If you’re finding this a challenge, don’t worry, you’re not alone. 

This webinar explores our experience working hands-on with clients to deploy DLP and information protection. We reveal the best way to get a fast start with DLP to make measurable progress on your Microsoft compliance journey.

More than 35% of data loss prevention implementations fail (according to Gartner 2023); we explored the barriers to sustainable information protection adoption, including not having a “tech ready” fit for purpose data classification taxonomy. We covered our tips for building your taxonomy, as well as exploring who should be involved in the process. And then we dived deep into the technology, providing an admin and user’s view of DLP, in addition to discussing a realistic plan for rollout and a phased plan to ramp up protection over time.

Our key takeaways for quick wins with DLP are:

  • Think bigger and more strategically about getting value from Microsoft Purview to protect your data
  • User communication is crucial at every stage – getting the right tone, creating and fostering a culture of privacy and security and regular communications are vital
  • Don’t put off tackling your classification taxonomy
  • Don’t go it alone! The IT team can’t deploy DLP or Microsoft Purview tools in isolation. Cross-business stakeholder engagement is required to harness the full potential of this powerful technology.
