DLP: LoB Users Must Help IT in Policy Definition

Today, it's IT's job to define information leakage policy within an organization.

This isn't right. IT can't do a good job with this alone. Teamwork is needed among IT and user departments in order to determine what the policies should be.

This is easier said than done. Many user departments are evasive, and seek to avoid responsibility. But they must get involved, as they are more sensitive to the issues than IT.

Once policy has been defined, IT can be responsible for implementing technology that enforces policy.
