DLP (Data Loss Prevention)


Service Description: 

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) email alerts for Outlook 365 will be implemented for all students, faculty and staff. An automated alert will be issued if text is detected that matches certain restricted data elements, including but not limited to the following:

  • U.S. Social Security number
  • Individual Taxpayer ID number
  • Credit/debit card information
  • Bank account information

The alert will indicate the type of data detected. ITS security and email administrators will be notified to ensure restricted data is handled according to University policies. When using Outlook from a web browser, if any restricted data appears to be in the message or in an attachment, a tip within the message composer will alert you.
