A link to create a relevant Communication Compliance policy will now appear as an option at the end of DLP policy configuration flow.
When this will happen
This feature is now generally available.
How this will affect your organization
We are surfacing Communication Compliance policy recommendations within the Data Loss Prevention (DLP) workflow, with the ability to apply DLP policy insights to your insider risk practice to protect company assets and flag sharing of concerning content such as adult imagery or threatening language. With this update, you will now be given the option to configure a relevant policy in Communication Compliance within the Microsoft 365 compliance center at the end of the DLP policy configuration flow.
Communication Compliance helps organizations detect explicit code of conduct and regulatory compliance violations, such as harassing or threatening language, sharing of adult content, and inappropriate sharing of sensitive information. Built with privacy by design, usernames are pseudonymized by default, role-based access controls are built in, investigators are explicitly opted in by an admin, and audit logs are in place to ensure user-level privacy.
What you need to do to prepare
You might want to notify appropriate users about these new capabilities and update your training and documentation as needed.
