Building a business case for sensitivity labelling and related features can be difficult without first understanding the existing information protection issues and the risks that labelling can help to address. Towards this, we’ve put together a series of points backed up with education-specific examples to demonstrate why information protection should be high on our list of priorities. We hope this might be useful in helping organizations understand the need for these capabilities and allow them to better articulate this back to business stakeholders. If you haven’t come across Sensitivity Labelling before, it’s just what its name implies. Its most basic form allows us to apply a label to sensitive information to mark it as such (this is probably more traditionally referred to as classification, but we’ll avoid using this terminology). Once we have our sensitive information labelled, there are various things that we can do with it. Below, we’ll explore some of these possibilities and the risks that the configuration can help to mitigate.
