A security incident during which confidential data or sensitive information is stolen or taken from a system, without the knowledge or authorization of the system’s owners, by either malicious insiders or external attackers.
Data exfiltration, data loss or data leakage is essentially the removal of information or data from an electronic device, typically a computer, mobile phone or other Internet connected device.
Data integrity refers to the accuracy, completeness, consistency and validity of data over its lifecycle.
Data Loss Prevention (DLP) are solutions and technologies that detect and prevent data breaches, exfiltration and unwanted data destruction. It does this by helping network admin and cybersecurity professionals to control which data users can transfer. As it blocks data exfiltration, organizations use it for internal security and regulatory compliance.
