Evidence such as keywords additionally can be applied to distinguish a sensitive information type, while things like confidence levels can be applied in the discovery process.
Sensitive information types can be applied individually to classify data. However, they can also be required in circumstances (separately or arranged into a policy template) to configure policies in Microsoft’s solutions for data security and governance.
A policy template incorporates groups of associated sensitive information types. Users can utilize policy templates to streamline policy design.
