Notion is a productivity app that enables users to write, plan, collaborate, and organize. It offers features like notes, databases, kanban boards, wikis, calendars, and reminders. Users can connect these components to create their own systems for knowledge management, note taking, data management, project management, among others.
In a platform like Notion where data can be easily shared, collaborated and exported, it is more important than necessary that Notion account needs to be protected:
- Regulatory Compliance: Many industries are subject to regulations that require certain standards for data protection, such as GDPR for personal data in the European Union, or HIPAA for health information in the U.S. A DLP strategy can help ensure compliance with these regulations.
- Insider Threats: Verizon's 2021 Breach Investigation Report state that the Healthcare and Finance industries experience the most incidents involving employees misusing their access privileges and also suffer the most from lost or stolen assets. Even trusted employees can sometimes unintentionally or intentionally cause data leaks. Notion is used by teams for collaboration, and DLP can help ensure that this collaboration can take place securely, without risking data leaks. In a platform like Notion where data can be easily shared and exported, DLP provides a way to maintain control over the data, ensuring that it doesn't end up in the wrong hands.
