5 Ways to Benefit from ServiceNow Data Loss Prevention

Nowadays, data is everything and powers everything we do. Keeping it safe and secure is one of the most important tasks for every organisation. Unfortunately, with the current pace of digitalisation, the probability of cyberattacks has substantially increased. Only in 2022, data breaches cost businesses an average of €4M.

To face the possible threats and guarantee your data’s safety, you need to ensure efficient Data loss prevention (DLP) processes. DLP is crucial because it safeguards sensitive and confidential information from unauthorised access, leakage, or theft.

ServiceNow has just the right solution to help you with that. It enables you to review and manage the remediation workflow of DLP incidents from multiple sources, such as endpoint, network, email, and cloud.
