MC295895: Communication Compliance new features coming to public preview

As announced at Ignite, we are releasing several preview updates for the Communication Compliance solution within the Microsoft 365 compliance center including Day Zero insights, a new activity summary report, and additional language support for built-in classifiers. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 85650, 85652, and 85653.

Microsoft 365 compliance center: Communication Compliance – Day zero insights

Communication Compliance Day Zero Insights helps organizations discover trends that they may not be aware of, like harassment, threats or sharing of sensitive information. Insights for sensitive information types are surfaced automatically through the existing Compliance center data classification service while insights for machine learning classifiers require an organization to have already configured a policy in Communication Compliance. Insights for both sensitive information types and machine learning classifiers are designed to help organizations holistically set up parameters for internal governance by identifying potential areas of risk and determining the type and scope of communication policies to be configured. Day Zero Insights displays the aggregate number of matches per classification type, with none of the insights containing any personally identifiable information.

Microsoft 365 compliance center: Communication Compliance – Review activity summary

This new Communication Compliance report provides a comprehensive summary of all activities and actions that have occurred against a policy, such as date sent, date flagged, reviewed by, message reconciliation, etc. By providing visibility into policy review activity, organizations will be able to easily fulfill regulatory compliance obligations and can better track the status and progress for unresolved policy violations.
