Configuring Azure Information Protection

Configuring Azure Information Protection


Rodney Buike: Hi. My name’s Rodney Buike and I’m an Identity and Information Protection Specialist at Microsoft Canada. In this short video, I’m going to show you how to create a simple Azure Information Protection policy to help users label and classify their data. Now, the following policy is the default policy with two minor changes. The first is to set a default label as general for all documents. So, any document or email created out of the gate will automatically gain this default label. The second change is to the label itself. And this is where I have applied the confidential all employees label and I’ve specified that any document that has a credit card number in it should get this particular policy applied to it. So now, if I switch over to Word, I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to paste some credit card numbers into the document itself. And I’ll go and I’ll save this to OneDrive, identifying it as a corporate document. And once I’ve done that and I’ve identified this as a corporate document, we’ll see that the policy will apply and this document is now marked as confidential all employees. And we can also see the reasoning why where it says the file conflicts with the policy and if we click on that, we can see exactly what’s going on here. This file contains sensitive information. So, just as simple as that, we’ve been able to create a document with a general default label and then it elevates that based on the content of that. In this case here, identifying credit card numbers and marking that as confidential all employees only. I hope you found this tip useful. Thanks for tuning in.
