New recommended DLP rules help protect sensitive data

What’s changing 

To help our customers more easily implement security controls, we will start providing recommended data loss prevention (DLP) rules personalized for your organization. These recommendations are based on the results of your data protection insights report and any rules you’ve already implemented, and will be surfaced in the admin console. 

Each rule that DLP recommends is a fully realized, ready-to-use rule that is preconfigured to warn users on sharing sensitive data. You can use the rules as they are, or edit the rules to customize them for your organization. The rules will only be enforced when you choose to activate them. 

Who’s impacted 


Why it’s important 

Protecting your company’s confidential data is critical. DLP rules can give you control over what users can share, and helps prevent the unintended exposure of sensitive information. Your data protection insights report can help identify priority areas to address, but creating, testing, and implementing rules can be time consuming. 

By generating fully realized, ready-to-use rules recommended based on your organization’s specific situation, we aim to make it easier to add controls and help protect sensitive information within your organization. 

The DLP rule performance charts can help you understand rule performance so you can make any necessary adjustments, and help identify where additional investigation is needed, with one-click integration to the investigation tool where available. 

See recommended rules at Admin console > Security > Data protection

Getting started 


To see the recommended rules, go to Admin Console > Security > Data Protection. To view the data protection insights report you must be a DLP admin or an admin that received an email invitation to view the report. 

Rule suggestions will be enabled by default for all organizations with data protection insights report, but rules will not be enforced unless you choose to activate them. Recommended rules will not be available if data protection insights reports are turned off.

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them.  Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo
