The Need for Encryption - What Happens When You Don't Have File Protection

The scary truth about why you need encryption, particularly as a business who would be liable for breaches and fines if this occurred. Let's see how much data a hacker can see without encryption.

The Difference File Protection Makes When You've Been Hacked

Now, let's look at the difference that file encryption makes!

Pre-Planning

2
Understanding Your Azure Information Protection Portal
3
Pre-Installation

Now you've gotten to grips with the portal, we need to do some leg work.

With large implementations like this, no matter how many users you have, you need to do some pre-planning. This limits the amount of troubleshooting needed later. 

Plus, it also allows you to understand more about the sensitive data within your business and how Azure Information Protection can help you. 

Setup

1
Understanding Labels & Policies
2
The Two Forms of Policies

Policies and labels are highly specific to your business and you can get as specific as you need to do, to protect your data and offer the right amount of accessibility to it, offering you complete control.

Now, let's set up your labels first...

3
Creating Labels

You need to create your labels first, and you do this by starting in your Azure portal (portal.azure.com/) and logging in using your Office 365 Credentials. 

4
Deciding on Occurances
5
Creating Global Policies

Now, we need to define who has access to the labels and again, this is done in the Azure portal.

Before installation you must create policies and these fall into two areas: 

The Global Policy

There is only one global policy that covers everyone internally that has the client installed. You can adjust and add to this policy as many times as you like, but you cannot create more than one. 

Here is how you create a global policy: 

6
Creating Scoped Policies

Scoped Policies

Scoped policies involve a team, department or interdepartmental level and will normally contain more labels. If you're just starting out or you don't yet have departments, you may not need scoped policies yet, but it's good to know as you grow and expand how to define them. 

Here is how you create a scoped policy:

Installation

2
Installing the Client

Before completing the installation make sure you have run all Microsoft and Windows updates from the previous section and closed any Office applications so that you don't lose any data.

The Sensitivity Bar Demo

Of course, you can manually set sensitivity levels by simply using the drop down arrows or buttons you can see above but we do not recommend this as general practice.

*If you find you're needing to do this time and time again, set new conditions in the scoped policy for better automatic coverage.

Common How-Tos

1
Manual Labelling

In some instances, for example if you have a one-time vendor you're using or a temporary member of staff, you won't need to adjust your policies to include them, but you still want to make sure documents and emails are labelled correctly. 

You do this using manual labeling. It's important to note that if you're lowering the classification of a document, you will need to state a reason that will be logged for record purposes.

This will apply if you have set your installation and settings as we instructed earlier in the course. 

*Note: If you're using manual labels frequently for the same reason, consider creating a new label or policy that best suits this so that you can use Azure Information Protection to the fullest in your business.
