I'm studying for the CCSP exam and a practice question read:

The goals of DLP solution implementation include all of the following, except:

A. Policy enforcement
B. Elasticity
C. Data discovery
D. Loss of mitigation

I chose D because I don't see how a DLP solution could make mitigation worse...

According to the test prep book though, the answer is B because:

DLP does not have anything to do with elasticity, which is the capability of the environment to scale up or down according to demand. All the rest are goals of DLP implementations.

OK, fair enough. I clearly see how I was wrong on the elasticity point. But why is D not a valid answer? I reviewed the prep material again and don't see this explained. Can someone please elaborate?


This was probably a typo. Data Loss mitigation is obviously a goal of DLP. Elasticity, as you said, is not a goal of DLP.
