So what is Information Leak Prevention (ILP)?

I thought it’d be good to start off by at least attempting to define what we mean by ILP. Basically, we’re talking about organisations stopping their valuable information from leaking out where it shouldn’t, either deliberately or accidentally. Whether it’s a company losing its secrets or a financial organisation inadvertently spilling confidential customer data, it’s a big deal – and the penalties for getting it wrong can be massive.

Computer Weekly has got a good article here which covers things pretty well, although I’d argue that 3BView’s tools don’t really suffer from the false positives problems discussed at the end of the article.
