Your Conscience, in a Pop-Up Box
DATA PROTECTIONApril 14, 2010
A security company has created a way for users to think twice about the data they access. Techworld reports on a data leak prevention system developed by Check Point that can detect when sensitive data is being accessed and potentially misused. If the system senses a user is accessing data subject to certain corporate data policies, it will deploy an e-mail or pop-up box to remind him or her about the policies. A Check Point spokesperson told the Daily Dashboard the user will be given three options: discard, send or review. Regardless of what the user selects, the system logs the fact that a pop-up or e-mail was issued.
