Data Loss Prevention


ITS is implementing Data Loss Prevention (DLP) to protect data and build awareness about information security at Loyola. Data loss prevention is a way for the University to monitor, identify, and reduce the accidental release of sensitive information found in emails and Office 365 files. For examples of Loyola protected data, see the Loyola Data Class policy.

Data Loss Prevention will help classify and protect MS Office 365 documents and Outlook emails by applying sensitivity labels. In Office 365, a label is associated to a document and then stored as a sensitivity property on it. Once saved, DLP classification labels will remain with the document, whether shared internally or externally.


  • Ensures that data is managed in a uniform manner across the University.
  • Warns users about disclosing confidential data outside the University.
  • Monitors the usage of and secures data according to the Loyola Data Class Policy.
