Wired reports that Google is rolling out a new interface for its Data Loss Prevention service that will make the privacy tool easier for inexperienced users to manage. DLP started as a program that scans data for vulnerability relating to the unintentional exposure of sensitive information. After evolving into a cloud privacy service in 2017, DLP now edits a company’s data in a way that protects identifiable information from being leaked due to platform misconfigurations. “In order to really protect something you need to know where it is, what it is, and how it’s handled,” Google Privacy Engineering Manager Ivan Medvedev said. “If you really know what you’re doing there’s all this flexibility in DLP, but you don’t have to be a privacy pro to get use out of this.” (Registration may be required to access this story.)
