Protecting sensitive data in today’s
world is a growing challenge. Data is traveling between users, devices,
apps, and services more than ever, and losing intellectual
property or personally identifiable information
can be devastating— not to mention the need of staying
compliant with ever-changing regulations. Around 88% of organizations feel
they’re losing control over data, and around 58% of users
admit to accidentally sending sensitive information
to the wrong person. Does your organization
have a strategy for protecting and managing
sensitive information? Information protection
capabilities in Microsoft 365 help you identify, classify,
protect, and monitor sensitive data— across devices,
apps, cloud services, and on-premises. Identifying sensitive
data is the first step in an effective information
protection strategy. When data resides on a device, you
can configure policies that separate business data from personal data
to protect corporate information. For on-premises data, you
can define policies to periodically scan files to
identify sensitive information. As users work on sensitive
data, they can receive in-app notifications to educate them
on how to handle sensitive data. When data moves to cloud
locations, files can automatically be scanned to identify
sensitive information. Once sensitive data is
identified, it needs to be classified so that
protection can be applied. Classification and labeling
persist with the file and are compatible with other
information protection services. Over 80 information types and 40
policies are available out of the box, and you can create
custom classifications as needed. You can also classify data to apply
retention policies – keeping data only as long as you need to and deleting obsolete
data after a defined period of time. Based on the sensitivity of data,
protection can be added to the data. It can be in the
form of encryption, access restrictions, or visual
markings such as watermarks. Protection is persistent and
travels with the data, helping control inappropriate
sharing of sensitive information. Monitoring data and responding
quickly when policy violations occur is crucial
for information security. Rich logs, reports, and alerts give
you insights into the usage of sensitive data, with the ability to
respond quickly to abnormal activity. You can even get event information to
integrate into your own monitoring systems. You may already have access to some of
these capabilities in Microsoft 365— learn how to take full advantage
of them and get started quickly with comprehensive data
protection from Microsoft. To learn more, follow the links.
