USING MICROSOFT 365 DATA LOSS PREVENTION (DLP) FEATURES TO MINIMIZE RISK
Whether your organization is subject to compliance regulations such as CMMC, or NIST or holds sensitive data, Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is an essential tool for organizations large and small to minimize and prevent the loss of critical, private information.
Microsoft 365 provides an advanced DLP feature that can help organizations minimize risk and protect their data from unauthorized access, accidental or malicious deletion, or improper sharing.
In this paper, we will:
- Discuss why organizations should consider using Microsoft 365’s DLP tools
- Showcase specific data loss prevention scenarios
- Provide a tutorial on how to set up a DLP policy
WHAT IS DATA LOSS PREVENTION (DLP)?
Data Loss Prevention (DLP) refers to a set of strategies, processes, and tools designed to prevent sensitive data from being accessed, used, or disclosed in an unauthorized manner. The goal of DLP is to protect sensitive information such as personally identifiable information (PII), intellectual property, financial data, or other confidential data from getting lost or stolen from your business.
Microsoft 365’s Data Loss Prevention tools use tools such as data encryption, access controls, content filtering, and user monitoring to keep data secure. Together DLP tools identify, classify, and protect sensitive data by monitoring data use and alerting administrators if any attempts to send or upload confidential documents and data to external email addresses or cloud storage site.
