DLP Policy Problem - Configure Rules


Where can I find some documents that can explain how to configure the dlp policy so I can be sure that everything I want is blocked except for the ones I approve?

Also, I've tried working with this tool - but I have this error when I try open it: Failed to load SecurityService Module.

I feel like I'm missing something...

Does anybody know what is this error?

Thank you and have a nice day !!

I've solved the problem with the DLP tool, but I still hope you can help me with the dlp policy...


Re: DLP Policy Problem - Configure Rules

1. What is the scope of your devices - MAss Storage. HID. CD Drives, ...etc.

    Create Definition rule. Configure the device classes that you want to manage.

2. Device Rules

    Create Device Rules - Monitor and Block

3. Type of Enforcement - AD User-based or Computer-based

    User Based - Create groups in "User Assignment", add the users/groups and configure the the device rule.

    computer Based - Policy Catalog -> DLP -> Computer Assigment Group. Create a new policy and configure the device rules.

4. Push DLP using the client task.

5. Monitor the events

    Data Protection - DLP Monitor.

Re: DLP Policy Problem - Configure Rules


Thank you for your answer.

I know how to do the basic, but I'm asking about the rules - not how to make them. I want my network to be full protected, from anything that can be connected to the systems, but without harm the systems (like I can't block all USB connections).

I just need some tips how to secure my network, what rules are required.

Re: DLP Policy Problem - Configure Rules

Hi Seauser,

no one can give you tips to secure your network because every network is different. i work in a financial organization and here we not only require usb blocking, we also need clipboard protection, email protection etc (many more rules which i have not mentioned)... im sure if yours is a small network / different organization, the requirement would be different than mine.

And always remember, there is no such thing called 100% security.

Re: DLP Policy Problem - Configure Rules

Ok looks like I have similar question here. I deployed DLP to one pc, installed and it is working. I can see it if I go to about and also on the EPO side. I created the DLP Policy, set up device definitions, created protection rules but the policy is not being sent to the computer? Am I missing something?
