Data Loss Prevention (DLP)

Data loss prevention (DLP) is a set of tools and processes used to ensure that highly sensitive data (HSD) is not lost, misused, transmitted, or accessed by unauthorized users.  At UVA, it can refer to scanning to identify where highly sensitive data (e.g., social security numbers (SSNs) and credit card numbers) are stored or emailed and remove them.
