OVERRIDING DOCUMENT USAGE RESTRICTIONS
Normal DLP systems have two modes of operation:
- Block sensitive document usage/transfer, etc
- Allow document usage but monitor
Restricting document usage prevents users from doing their job, while just monitoring document usage results in the reviewing of a large number of incidents. e-Safe Compliance introduces a third way – “allow users to remove restrictions but require them to provide a reason for doing so.” Allowing authorised users to override restrictions by giving a reason means those users are no longer prevented from doing their job. Furthermore, the fact that they have to give a reason ensures users are aware of the importance of the information and that they will be held responsible for any misuse. This automatically ensures security of the information.
