Dear members,

Please have a read through this extensive whitepaper which examines the European data protection laws related to workplace monitoring and DLP. It also examines how Symantec's DLP technology can help your company effectively manage compliance with such laws while enhancing the protection of your
confidential data.

Short abstract:

An organisation doesn't need far-flung offices, telecommuting employees or offshore business partners to be at risk for loss of confidential data.1 It doesn't even need large amounts of credit card data, patient information or valuable source code. All that is required are people and confidential data. And whether accidental or deliberate, data loss can occur whenever confidential information is used or transferred in violation of company policies or regulatory requirements.

The risk of data loss has increased over the last several years as new, revolutionary and ubiquitous communications technologies have been introduced. In EMEA and a growing number of jurisdictions around the world, strict regulatory requirements present what may seem to be a daunting task for companies seeking to implement a DLP strategy.
