What is Cloud DLP?

GCP Data Loss Prevention API, a SAAS (Software as a Service) helps you to de-identify and protect the sensitive figures. It reduces the potential risk and takes informed decisions to prevent data loss. DLP API uses information types also known as infoTypes which determine the sensitive content.
Let's say the end-user enters personal information like email address, credit card details, and password in an application. These are known as built-in infoTypes which we use in DLP API. To avoid threats, we can choose the DLP API to mask the data. There are multiple ways to implement this -

  • Inspect  - which predicts that the given information contains sensitive information. Example: CC number - 4111-8888-8888-8118
  • Mask - In order to hide this sensitive content, DLP API will mask each instance of data with some special character. Example: CC number - ####-####-####-####
  • Replace - Replacing the data using a predetermined key i.e. replace the text with a fixed string value. Example: CC number - [CreditCardNumber]
  • Redact - Hiding the sensitive content completely. Example: CC number -

Lab Tasks:

  1. Creating an Inspect Template using built-in infoTypes.

  2. Creating a De-identification Template.

  3. Testing the API.
