April 2021 Microsoft Security TechTalk

This webinar covers the principles of data classification in Microsoft 365 and how we use it to build a solid foundation for good data governance. The data classification process tags data by sensitivity and risk. When data is classified it becomes possible to secure it more effectively against loss, abuse or theft.

In this Microsoft Security TechTalk you’ll discover how data classification is put in practice using features like sensitivity labelling and the unified labelling platform, you will also learn how Data Loss Prevention (DLP) can be achieved using Microsoft Information Protection and Microsoft Cloud App Security. Finally, you’ll cover example scenarios that implement classification to achieve protection and governance strategies. You’ll come away with a new appreciation for the power of leveraging data classification within Microsoft’s platforms.


  1. Unified labelling in Microsoft 365
  2. Leveraging classifications for DLP
  3. Scenarios to apply classifications
