Office 365: What to know about Data Investigation?

“A data spill occurs when a document containing confidential, sensitive, or malicious content is released into an untrusted environment. When a data spill is detected, it’s important to quickly contain the environment, assess the size and locations of the spillage, examine user activities around it, and then delete the spilled data from the service. “

If you would like to try this preview out, I highly recommend that you test it out in a new test tenant. Please review the reference below for further explore. 

There is one functionality in this that caught my attention, is it even investigate unsupported files, example, files that are password protected cannot be processed since the files are locked or encrypted. Using error remediation, investigators can download files with such errors, remove the password protection, and upload the remediated files.

How to get to this?

  1. Login to your https://protection.office.com
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the left taskbar
  3. Data Investigation is just after eDiscovery
