Data Leakage or Loss Prevention (DLP) or information leak prevention (ILP) or information protection and control (IPC) technology has been developed to prevent data from intentionally or accidentally leaking out. Data loss prevention systems differ from conventional security controls such as firewalls or intrusion detection systems (IDS) in terms of dedication and proactivity. Conventional security controls have less dedication to the actual content of the data. Although there are some academic DLP studies in the literature, very few studies on industrial solutions. This study established a DLP system for the Social Security Institution (Sosyal Güvenlik Kurumu, SGK) of Turkey. SGK is Turkey's one of the biggest institutions with 28,000 employees. Installation methods and experienced problems were noted objectively. And important things about the implementation of industrial DLP systems in large institutions have been marked.
