Microsoft built out a number of solutions in Office 365 incrementally, and this re-organization groups them together by business processes, hopefully in a way that is meaningful to users and administrators of M365 Compliance.

In the following screenshot, I have seven Sensitivity labels defined. Remember Sensitivity labels describe and prescribe how labeled … Continue reading “Office 365 Labels vs Label Policies”
