Compliance retention and protection

Hi,

In Office 365, I need to be able to protect emails and documents through either encryption when leaving the organisation or by restrictions such as preventing modification to the file or saving a copy etc. I also want to create retention policies for emails and documents.

In the Microsoft Purview Information Protection section I can create a label where if used the email/document is encrypted for example.
Is this same label used for retention or does a separate label have to be created for retention policies within the Data Lifecycle management section in Microsoft Purview.
Would a customer then have to select both labels for the restriction and the retention to apply.

Is it possible to have one label that does everything?

Regards,

Matthew Ridley

Hello @MatthewRidleyDigitalandICTServices-8427

Thanks for your post.

I believe that you are talking about WaterMark set up for office... Please correct If I am not mistaken.

Also, you can direct yourself to the next article below:

Hi @ricardosolisvillegas-4678

I had already taken a look at the link you have provided which does explain about sensitivity labels, but I wasn't sure if I could use the same label for retention as well.

Shortly after I raised this question, I found a link which explains the different types of labels. For example I now now that Information protection labels are completely different to Retention labels and I would need to create one of each if I needed both features.
