About this course

Course code TPNMA_MHDLPA
Duration 4 Days

McAfee Host Data Loss Prevention (DLP) safeguards sensitive information through a series of device protection, tagging, and reaction rules. The device protection and tagging rules are used to mark, track, and control sensitive information. Reaction rules define the action taken when attempts are made to connect physical devices and transfer or transmit sensitive information. The McAfee University Host Data Loss Prevention Essentials course enables attendees to receive in‐depth training on the tools and expertise you need to design, implement, configure and troubleshoot DLP.
