b'DATA CLASSIFICATIONAn important first step to achieving compliance is to classify your data with labels. These labels can then be used to apply specific retention or protection policies in Microsoft 365. Some common scenarios may include: Tax forms that need to be retained for a minimum period of timePress materials that need to be permanently deleted when they reach a certain ageCompetitive research that needs to be both retained and then permanently deletedWork visas that must be marked as a record so that they cant be edited or deleted Labels can be applied manually by users, automatically based on policy, or applied by default to a document library. It is important to note that eachdocument or email can only have a single label at a time. Users can overridelabels manually, and any manually labeled document will not be overwrittenby an automatic policy. Labels can also be used to classify as a record, and that content will not be able to be modified. You can publish different labels to different user sets with multiple label policies. Enable people in your organization to apply a label manually to content in Outlook on the web, Office 365,OneDrive, SharePoint, and Microsoft 365 groups. Users often know best what type of content theyre working with, so they can classify it and have the appropriate policy applied.2'
