Add digital Security Watermarks to Prevent Data Loss and Aid in Forensics
Even with the variety of encryption and user rights management tools within your collaboration applications, how can you ensure that users are sharing information responsibly? Or that even the most determined user is dissuaded of bypassing sharing policies?
DLP and security tools aid in protecting documents, but there are ways to circumvent those systems. For instance, taking a snapshot of a document on your screen or a user thinking there is no way a leaked email or document could be traced back to them.
Digital Security Watermarks that adapt to users and use cases offer a perfect solution to augment your information security practices, providing a visual deterrent to prevent data loss and aid in forensics.
Benefits of Using Digital Security Watermarks
Watermarking sensitive documents can help in a variety of ways:
- It supplements user education and training relating to the safe handling of sensitive or proprietary information, providing users with a visual reminder of their responsibilities relating to the protection of the data.
- By having a digital watermark in the body of the document or email, the user is deterred from taking a picture with their mobile device and sharing in an unauthorized manner or using it for malicious purposes.
- Embed mandatory information and markings such as CUI Designator Labels and header/footers to meet compliance requirements for CMMC and NIST.
