Topic Last Modified: 2013-01-04

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is a new feature area that helps you both protect sensitive data and inform users of internal compliance policies. DLP features help you identify, monitor, and protect sensitive data through deep content analysis. Exchange Online offers built-in DLP policies based on regulatory standards such as personally identifiable information (PII) and payment card industry data security standards (PCI), and DLP is extensible to support other policies important to your business.

The following topics provide information about DLP and basic procedures to help you get started implementing them in your organization.

Create a DLP policy from a template

Create a custom DLP policy

Integrating sensitive information rules with transport rules

DLP policy detection reports

Additionally, the new PolicyTips feature in Microsoft Outlook 2013 informs users about potential policy violations before sensitive data is mistakenly sent to unauthorized people. To learn more, see Policy Tips or the overview for Data loss prevention.

Audit logging lets you troubleshoot configuration issues by tracking specific changes made by administrators and to help you meet regulatory, compliance, and litigation requirements. For more information, see Exchange auditing reports.
