Azure Data Loss Prevention and Information Protection


ITS will be offering Microsoft Azure Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and Information Protection (AIP) to protect data and enhance information security. DLP will help manage content being shared outside the University such as Social Security Numbers, credit card numbers, etc. through policies.

AIP will help classify and protect documents and emails by applying labels. A label is associated to a document and then stored as a sensitivity property on it. AIP may be used to encrypt a document, apply visual markings and assign specific actions allowed.


  • Ensures that data is managed in a uniform manner across the organization
  • Prevents important business data from being disclosed outside the organization
  • Monitors the usage of and secures data according to the laid-out policies
