Explore Office 365 data retention and data governance features found in the Security & Compliance Center.
- [Instructor] Despite the 93-day recycle bin limit, it is possible to set new data retention time policies in Office 365. This is useful if you need to comply with internal policies or industry regulations. For example, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in the USA might require you to retain certain types of content for up to seven years. The Security and Compliance Center provides advanced data governance features for documents and sites for all Office 365 plans.
If you want retention policies to be applied to mail policies, you'll require an Office 365 Enterprise E3 or E5 plan. To access the Security and Compliance Center, open the Office 365 Admin Center and then click the Security and Compliance Center tile or click the link on the screen and then select the retention item under data governance. You can then create a new retention policy. You can create multiple retention policies and the settings can be fine-tuned to retain data indefinitely or for a set period of time.
You can configure data retention for a variety of data sources, including individual sites, OneDrive accounts, Office 365 groups, Skype for Business users, and more.
