Sometimes you may want to create exceptions to a rule in the DLP policy.
For example, a public health clinic that must comply with the Health Insurance Portability and
Accountability Act (HIPAA), should not allow patient records to leave the clinic's closed network.
However, the clinic works with a specific social worker in a city office, who must have the records
on hand for the patients' benefit. As the clinic's Security Administrator, you create an exception to
the rule, allowing this data type to be sent to the specific email address. You could make this case
even better: in the exception, include a secondary data type is a Dictionary of patient names who
have signed a waiver for the social worker to see their records. Thus, with one rule, you ensure
that only records that the social worker is allowed to see are sent to the social worker's office.
DLP prevents anyone from sending records to an unauthorized email address. It ensures that no
employee of the clinic has to deal personal requests to have the records sent to unauthorized
destination - it simply cannot be done.
