In our continued efforts to improve the accuracy of out-of-the-box sensitive information types (SITs), we will be updating the definition of five existing SITs for better accuracy and to stay updated with the latest definition published by relevant authorities.
When this will happen
Rollout will begin in mid-April and is expected to be complete by end of April.
How this will affect your organization
The following SITs definitions are being updated as follows:
Slovakia passport number
- The new definition will look for:
- Existing pattern – One letter followed by 7 digits
- Additional pattern – Two letters followed by 6/7 digits
U.S. driver’s license number
- Added a case insensitive keyword “DLN” to the low confidence pattern
Hong Kong identity card (HKID) number
- Added support for following additional pattern: Optional space before check digit
Singapore national registration identity card (NRIC) number
- Added support for the following additional pattern(s): ‘M’ as the first letter
- Reference: National Registration Identity Card – Wikipedia
Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) number
- Updated the definition as per the latest patterns issued by Drug Enforcement Administration

What you need to do to prepare
No action is needed. Your existing policies (including DLP policies) need not be changed.
