Dark Reading Radio: Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Fail

Learn about newly found vulnerabilities in commercial and open-source DLP software in our latest episode of Dark Reading Radio with security researchers Zach Lanier and Kelly Lum.

You know that data loss prevention (DLP) system you count on to keep private and sensitive information from leaking outside the organization? It may well contain security bugs of its own, according to new research that will be presented next week at Black Hat USA in Las Vegas.

Security researchers Zach Lanier and Kelly Lum staged a bakeoff of sorts to study the actual security of these security tools and found a plethora of common security vulnerabilities such as cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery, to name a few. Lanier, who is a senior security researcher at Duo Security, provides a sneak-peek at some of the surprising weaknesses in DLP product administrative and programmatic interfaces, as well as in their inspection engines.

So register now and listen to a fascinating interview on "Data Loss Prevention (DLP) FAIL." Have additional questions for our guest? Share them in the comments section below.

Ryan, you can post that question in the Comment box below the show's page if you've registered. Then we can have Zach address it--even if you're not there. Thanks!

Re: Failure of Data Loss Prevention
Thanks! Being the DLP administrator this will definitely be interesting. I did have a question that I think it stated below I could ask here for the broadcast. 

I can see DLP being a cloudy area when you use an email service that is cloudbase such as Office365.

My questions is:

Can DLP be applied to services that are in the cloud (example Office 365 and Symantec DLP) and if the third party states that it cannot are there regulations in place by compliance organizations to combat this statement? Any direction would be appreciated.

Re: Failure of Data Loss Prevention
Me, too. Zach and Kelly Lum are still in working on this, so he may even have new info to share today as well as next week at Black Hat USA in Vegas.

Re: Failure of Data Loss Prevention
It will be interesting to learn which DLP products and open-source programs were found to have security vulns. The researchers also plan to provide some mitigation/defense recommendations in their talk next week. 

Join us today at 1pm and you can ask Zach Lanier questions about his findings.
