ITMG developed a data protection and risk management program that provided greater visibility and protection of critical assets.
Creating insider visibility through Data Loss Prevention strategies.
Client has over 140,000 employees worldwide but lacked a clear strategic vision for protecting data. Client had a DLP MSP contract that was not well aligned with their business objectives, resulting in several implementation issues. DLP agents were deployed on 75,000 devices, but the limited internal staff lacked the technical skills and procedures to properly manage the alerts and were entirely reliant upon the DLP vendor for support.
ITMG provided strategic guidance on aligning the DLP program with an Insider Risk Management strategy. ITMG defined a new DLP strategy, developed goals, conducted data collection interviews to identify technical and operational gaps then developed a new data protection roadmap. ITMG realigned Client’s existing DLP vendor relationship and negotiated a new contract, on behalf of the Global CISO. ITMG then managed the first 90 days of the implementation which included onsite technical support to develop DLP policies and responses, weekly vendor and client team meetings, and the deployment of over 70,000 registered secure USB drives for automated data encryption. The new MSP contract with DLP vendor saved the client over $2,000,000.
