Hi vani,

Data leakage is the unauthorized transmission of data from within an organization to an external destination or recipient. The term can be used to describe data that is transferred electronically or physically. Data leakage threats usually occur via the web and email, but can also occur via mobile data storage devices such as optical media, USB keys, and laptops.

Barely a day goes by without a confidential data breach hitting the headlines. Data leakage, also known as low and slow data theft, is a huge problem for data security, and the damage caused to any organization, regardless of size or industry, can be serious. From declining revenue to a tarnished reputation or massive financial penalties to crippling lawsuits, this is a threat that any organization will want to protect themselves from.

-> Identify critical data.
-> Monitor access and activity.
-> Utilize encryption.
-> Lock down the network.
-> Endpoint security.

I hope you find the above solution helpful. If it does, please mark as Best Answer to help others too.

Thanks and Regards,
