If you’re planning to take the Security+ exam, you might like to remember this key point.
Data exfiltration is the unauthorized transfer of data out of a network. Data loss prevention (DLP) techniques and technologies can block the use of USB devices to prevent data loss and monitor outgoing email traffic for unauthorized data transfers. A cloud- based DLP can enforce security policies for data stored in the cloud, such as ensuring that Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is encrypted.
This is one of the Remember This blocks from the CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-501 Study Guide. As a study habit, I encourage readers to repeat these key points to themselves as often as possible. The more you repeat the information, the more likely you are to remember it when you take the exam.
The CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-501 Study Guide provides additional information needed to fully understand this key point.
Also, the full text of the top selling CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-501 Study Guide is available in the Full Security+ Course within an online course format.
