Introduction To Data Loss Prevention in SharePoint 2016

Everywhere your data exists, moves or is shared, you need to protect it. With a Data Loss Prevention (DLP) policy in SharePoint Server 2016, you can identify, monitor, and automatically protect sensitive information across your site collections.  Learn the basics of DLP and how you can start better protecting your data.

What is Data Loss Prevention?

  • Data loss prevention (DLP) is a strategy for making sure that end users do not send sensitive or critical information outside the corporate network.
  • DLP Software products help a network administrator control what data end users can transfer so that users cannot accidentally or maliciously share data that could put the organization at risk.

I recently created a presentation for a Lunch & Learn at my company, AvePoint, and decided to share the slides:

The information comes primarily from Microsoft’s documentation with a couple of slides based off of information from Vlad Catrinescu’s presentation at Ignite 2016.

I am working on adding information on the differences between SharePoint 2016 and Office 365 and will update with the new slides when I complete it.

Hope it you find it informative.
