Data Loss Prevention

Champion’s data loss prevention (DLP) service helps you identify, monitor and protect sensitive information in your organization through deep content analysis. DLP is increasingly important for enterprise message and collaboration systems, because business-critical email and collaboration often includes sensitive data that needs to be protected. Worrying about whether financial information, personally identifiable information (PII) or intellectual property data might be accidently sent to unauthorized users can keep a Chief Security Officer (CSO) up all night.

We address your DLP concerns and make sure you can rest easy by following our time-tested five step methodology:

Step 1: Discovery

Through a series of interviews, workshops, questionnaires and automated data gathering tools, we gather extensive information about your company that is crucial to developing a unique and effective DLP strategy. We ask questions such as:

  • What are your organizational goals?
  • Do you have regulatory compliance requirements that must be met?
  • Who currently has access to what data?
  • Do you have policy templates in place today, and if so what are they?
  • How do you handle employee education and acknowledgment of DLP policies?
  • What is your current technology? Is it doing its job accurately or is it causing compliance burdens on your business?

Step 2: Analysis

After our discovery phase, our consultants analyses your current requirements, environment and future needs, we perform a gap analysis, measuring what you have today against what will be needed tomorrow.

Step 3: Recommendations

We will provide both a written recommendation report as well as a comprehensive presentation of our findings and recommendations, which will address the following:

  • Starting a preconfigured policy template that can help you detect specific types of sensitive information such as PCI-DSS data, Gramm-Leach-Bliley act data, or even locale-specific personally identifiable information (PII)
  • Testing the effectiveness of your DLP policies before fully enforcing them
  • Incorporating your own custom DLP policy templates and sensitive information types
  • Detecting sensitive information in message attachments, body text, or subject lines as well as file share and network drives
  • Adding policy tips, which can help contextually educate your end users by displaying a policy tip in Outlook etc.
  • Looking at the different DLP reports in the Office 365 admin center to drive compliance adoption in the organization.

Step 4: Implementation

Working alongside your team, we will focus on implementing the agreed up solutions while making sure that we address the business requirements, technology enhancements and operational changes that must take place.

Step 5: Ongoing Life Cycle Support

Two times a year, we will touch base with your team to assure that we are achieving the goals that have been set. We will also make sure that the DLP policies are not so constrictive that it affects business and insure that we can meet any audit requirements.

Adopting this kind of comprehensive DLP strategy will offer many benefits to your company, including education for your team regarding security and data loss, better positioning for compliance audits, and prevention of leaks of any valuable corporate data.

Erick Bacallao joined Champion Solutions Group in 2015 after a career of Software Development in Cuba at the National Cancer Care Institute of Cuba, followed by moving to the States with allAware.


Champion acquired allAware and its properties and Erick has utilized his extensive background and expertise in IT and Software Development to rise to VP of Product Development in less than 5 years. During this time, Erick has been involved with key projects that led to the launch of numerous products including CSP Boss, Inscape platform and 365 Productivity Insights.


Erick has a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of Havana. He won Gold Medals for Programming from the Ministry of Education in Cuba, and he is certainly still a Gold Medalist for Champion!


As President and CEO, Chris is responsible for the development of key strategic alliances and solution portfolio. He leads Champion’s go-to market and execution strategies for integrated offerings in the cloud, in security, and in digital infrastructure, always focusing on improving the customer experience and driving transformative business outcomes.


He also aligns key partner initiatives with company strategy and oversees corporate marketing and messaging to gain mindshare with customers and partners. It’s his vision and innovativeness that have catapulted Champion up the ranks to become a $100M+ organization—and one of the most respected solution providers in the industry.


Over the past two decades, Chris has also focused on mergers and acquisitions, as well as innovative product development. He is the original founder and an active member on the Board of Managed Maintenance, Inc., a SAAS provider and consulting firm that utilizes their award-winning One-View Portal to help the IT Channel and its customers manage their IT Maintenance.


Chris is also the original founder and chief strategist behind one of the original storage cloud providers, Storage Access / BluePoint. During the course of a few short years, he had raised $20M and took that company public on the Toronto Stock Exchange. It has since been acquired by Pomeroy.


In 2012, Chris led the acquisition of MessageOps and continued the product development and worldwide launch of its premier SAAS, 365 Command. Built on Microsoft Azure, 365 Command is currently managing over 1 million seats of Microsoft’s Office 365. After achieving this phenomenal milestone, 365 Command and other MessageOps O365 utilities were sold to Kaseya.


Over the past 35 years, Chris as worked tirelessly to not only advance his own career, but those of his employees. In addition to leading a $100M organization, Chris can also be found sitting with sales teams, cold calling and coaching, and validating why Champion has been listed on Best Places to Work by both South Florida Business Journal and Computerworld.

Ultimately, the success garnered by Champion Solutions Group, its associated companies, and their employees is due in large part to the leadership of its President and CEO. Perhaps the most fitting award Chris has earned is South Florida Business Journal’s 2013 Ultimate CEO Award.
