B. Scanning of outbound IM (Instance Messaging).
C. Scanning copying of documents to USB.
D. Scanning of SharePoint document library.
E. Scanning of shared drives.
F. Scanning of HTTP user traffic.

Answer: B,F

DLP systems monitor the contents of systems (workstations, servers, networks) to make sure key content is not deleted or removed. They also monitor who is using the data (looking for unauthorized access) and transmitting the data. Outbound IM and HTTP user traffic refers to data over a network which falls within the DLP strategy.
