    Large organizations and small financial services firms alike are vulnerable to data breaches caused by malicious and negligent insiders. 

    Insider threats pose unique challenges to financial services firms due to the organization’s trust and their close proximity to financial data.

    Unfortunately, a financial data breach can be as simple as having sensitive data transferred to a USB device that is later lost, stolen, or later disclosed when taken off-premise.

    With AccessPatrol you can easily block employees from using removable media devices, scanners, printers, and cameras to prevent them from stealing financial data.

    • USB Activity Monitoring: Review reports and alerts of USB file transfers for evidence of illicit transfers of sensitive data
    • USB Data Protection: Easily block USBs, optical media, mobile devices, SD cards, and other removable media with custom security policies that fit the needs of each employee
    • Block Files: Even trusted devices can be misused; restrict file transfers to portable storage based on file name and extension

    Why Use Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Software?

    A DLP solution protects sensitive data such as personally identifiable information (PII), PHI, EHRs, and intellectual property from being shared outside the corporate network.

    Without data protection methods including a DLP solution an organization risks losing the sensitive data of their customers to a trusted insider transferring their information to a USB flash drive.

    With DLP software these risks can be mitigated by enforcing data protection policies that restrict sensitive data from being exfiltrated.

    Technical safeguards are required by data security and privacy frameworks such as GDPR, HIPAA, SOX, ITAR, and PIPEDA. DLP software provides critical data protection measures to help meet regulatory compliance requirements.

    Over 64% of financial services companies have 1,000+ sensitive files open to every employee.1

    Without data loss prevention measures in place, stealing these sensitive files is as simple as a transfer to a  USB flash drive.

    70% of consumers believe that businesses aren’t doing enough to secure their personal information.2

    DLP software protects sensitive personal information by preventing data leakage to key egress points.

    63% of employees have brought data from their previous employer to their current employer.3

    The best data loss prevention software protects intellectual property against insider data theft.

    What is Data Loss Prevention (DLP)?

    Data loss prevention (DLP) is a set of cybersecurity tools and processes that prevent confidential data such as personally identifiable information (PII), intellectual property, credit card numbers, and databases from being leaked, deleted, or misused.

    Large organizations and small financial institutions alike need data security measures such as a a DLP solution to ensure their own data and that of their customers is secured in accordance with compliance requirements and laws such as PCI DSS.

    DLP tools work to detect and prevent sensitive data from leaving the network. To protect the confidentiality and security of data, DLP software stops employees from copying sensitive data to unauthorized USB drives and other data egress points,

    The security policies defined by DLP software helps to prevent insiders from accidentally or maliciously sharing data that could put customers of financial services organizations at risk.

    Can I Set Unique Device Restrictions for Different Computers or Employees?

    Yes. You can assign unique security policies for each computer, user, department, or other organizational unit (OU) in your company.

    To do this, CurrentWare allows you to create group folders with separate policies. This feature is perfect for restricting employees while providing greater access for trusted administrators.

    In terms of device control, you can also use the access code generator to temporarily grant access to all peripherals or use the device scheduler to automatically allow/block devices at specific times.

    In terms of internet and application restriction, you can use the internet scheduler and app blocker scheduler to temporarily allow access to blocked websites and applications at specific times.

    Can I Block Specific File Types from Being Transferred?

    Yes. CurrentWare has the ability to prevent your employees from copying specific files to their storage devices. These file transfer restrictions can be configured based on the file name or file extension.

    The file transfer blocking feature can also be used on devices that are on the Allowed List. This lets you provide access to company-authorized USB devices while still protecting the sensitive data in your network against exfiltration to portable storage hardware.

    Who Uses This DLP Solution?

    CurrentWare has a global client base across a variety of industries including government, healthcare, finance, nonprofit, and manufacturing.

    CurrentWare’s customers use our computer monitoring, web filtering, and data loss prevention solutions to protect their business against time theft, data leakage, and web-based threats by monitoring and controlling computer usage.
