Office 365 security & compliance and Microsoft 365 compliance

New Contributor

I am a bit confused in terms of creating a retention policy and creating a label. There are two locations where you can create labels and policies:


Can someone please explain the difference between these two locations? I am trying to create a retention policy and label for the SharePoint environment.

Kind Regards

@Harris0261 Hi, it's the same labels and policies. Only different places where to configure.


"These new centers will gradually replace the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center ( You can turn on automatic redirection now in the security center or compliance center so admins in your organization are instantly redirected from features in the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center to the corresponding feature in the new centers."

@ChristianJBergstorm thanks for your response, so creating label in Security center would be the same as creating them in compliance center? If I understand correctly its just two different location with the same functionality?
