In this Blog, James Yip explains how to conduct sensitive file inventory and background labeling using the Purview Information Protection Scanner.
A Graph API is available to extract details of the sensitivity labels assigned to SharePoint Online documents. This article explores how to extract the information from files in a document library and use it to create a report. The nice thing is that once you have the data, you can slice and dice it any way you wish in Excel, Power BI, or whatever tool you prefer.
Sensitivity labels support local language values, meaning that you can translate the display name and tooltip for labels so that they appear in the language chosen by a user. Most people don't both because it's painfully slow to insert the translated strings for multiple languages. However, when you apply a mixture of PowerShell and the Microsoft Translator service, the task becomes so much easier.
You can manage sensitivity label settings through the Microsoft Purview compliance portal, but it's hard to see all the settings for labels in a consumable manner. This article describes how to use PowerShell to extract and report sensitivity label settings, including highlighting rights assignments that might be out of date. It's an example of just how useful PowerShell is to Microsoft 365 administrators.
Microsoft 365 security is a big topic. Focus is important when it comes to getting things done. In this article, we suggest five areas that administrators could work on during 2023 to improve the security posture of their tenant. You might already have established full control over some of these areas. Even if you have, it's still good to consider if you can improve security.
Microsoft has broadened and deepened the functionality available through sensitivity labels since their introduction in 2018. This article explains the basics of sensitivity labels and highlights some of the areas where important changes have occurred.
Microsoft 365 tenants can assign colors to the sensitivity labels used to mark files and messages. However, the set of colors chosen by Microsoft is frankly a bit weird. You can use PowerShell to assign different colors to labels and in this article, we show you how to use a traffic light color scheme.
The number of guest accounts in Azure AD keeps growing, largely due to usage in Microsoft Teams. In this article, we describe five basic management steps to control where guests come how, how they connect, what they can do and access, and removing inactive guests. It's the kind of thing all Microsoft 365 tenants should do.
In the second article of this 2-part series, we describe the alternatives that exist to help secure access for remote workers, exploring the worthy features that don’t require MDCA. The features detailed in this article are available for any tenant with Azure AD Premium licensing and offer a more generic set of controls for tenants where MDCA licensing is not available.
In many organizations, Microsoft 365 is a significant investment. However, you get so much with Microsoft 365 E3 licenses that many organizations are unaware of, including beneficial features across Productivity, Compliance, Security, and Device management. Kat Greenan shares some of her secrets and the hidden gems that can be found in a Microsoft 365 E3 license.
Microsoft insists that encrypted SharePoint and OneDrive for Business files found by eDiscovery searches can only be decrypted by Advanced eDiscovery, which requires Office 365 E5 licenses. This seems unfair, especially as Office 365 E3 tenants can create and use sensitivity labels to protect Office documents stored in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. An example of not very joined up thinking when it comes to software licensing?
