Office 365 Security & Compliance Center

Office 365
 

Applies to: Office 365

Topic Last Modified: 2018-06-13

The Office 365 Security & Compliance Center is designed to help you manage compliance features across Office 365 for your organization. Links to existing SharePoint and Exchange compliance features bring together compliance capabilities across Office 365.

NoteNote:
Currently, many of the compliance features are still accessible through service-specific management interfaces, such as the Exchange admin center (EAC). However, this will change in the future as more service-independent compliance features are added to the Security & Compliance Center.

1 Data governance enables users to create, publish, and manually apply labels to documents; import data using drive shipping or over the network; and create and apply retention/deletion policies across workloads, users, and groups. Retention policies applied to mailboxes require Office 365 Enterprise E3 or E5.
2 Advanced data governance allows you to retain important information and delete unimportant information by classifying information based on a retention or deletion policy or both. It includes intelligent/automated actions such as recommending policies, automatically applying labels to data, applying labels based on sensitive data types or queries, disposition review, and use of smart import filters. It also includes the Supervision feature for reviewing employee communications for security and compliance purposes.
