Data loss prevention (DLP) helps you protect sensitive information and prevent its inadvertent disclosure. Examples of sensitive information that you might want to prevent from leaking outside your organization include financial data or personally identifiable information (PII) such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, or health records. With a data loss prevention (DLP) policy, you can identify, monitor, and automatically protect sensitive information across Office 365.
DLP is an essential tool in today’s digital world. Users have multiple devices and want to have connectivity at all times. Implementing DLP will increase visibility into the organization information, files, the flow of information and the methodologies used by users when sharing this information.
The take away from Microsoft’s description of what DLP is should be the last sentence: “identify, monitor and automatically protect sensitive information across Office 365.” DLP is part of E3 and E5 licenses suites which most enterprises either already have or are planning on utilizing.
