INFO: Licensing for Teams ‘chat/IM messaging’ Data Loss Prevention

imageInterested in configurating Data Loss Prevention policies to prevent sensitive information – credit card numbers, social security numbers, or health records – from being shared in Microsoft Teams chat/messaging?

A NOTE AROUND LICENSING DLP FOR MICROSOFT TEAMS
There are TWO types of Data Loss Prevention (DLP) available to Microsoft Teams:

  • DLP for Teams files/documents
    (included with Office 365 E3)
  • DLP for Teams chat/messaging
    (not included with Office 365 E3;
    requires “Office 365 E5” or separate licensing of “Office 365 Advanced Compliance” or corresponding Microsoft 365 suite licensing)

It is my understanding that DLP is available for files/documents for Microsoft Teams just as it is for SharePoint file folders & OneDrive for Business for Office 365 E3 licensees.  DLP is not available for chat/messages in Microsoft Teams in Office 365 E3 & requires additional licensing if needed:

  • Office 365 E5/A5
  • Microsoft 365 E5/A5
  • Microsoft 365 E5/A5 Compliance
  • Office 365 Advanced Compliance
