Data Exposure: Inevitable and Ubiquitous
A key responsibility for an IT security professional is to secure the business’ information assets, be that customer data, financial information, or any other critical information. Often the focus is on controlling flows of sensitive data over the perimeter or within the network, perhaps with Data Loss Prevention solutions.

Data exposure is already a big challenge, and it continues to grow.
This data loss can lead to loss of competitive advantage, fines for non-compliance, and funds lost to fraud. This guide outlines how to detect, analyze, and remediate data leakage–including a treasure chest of free tooling.
