Summary

Microsoft Syntex is introducing a new prebuilt model for identifying and optionally extracting sensitive information from SharePoint document libraries, with a rollout beginning in late May 2024 and completing by late June 2024. Users should be informed about this update.

MC791115 – Microsoft Syntex will soon deliver a new sensitive information prebuilt model that can identify and optionally extract sensitive information from files stored in a Microsoft SharePoint document library.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 393336

When this will happen:

General Availability (Worldwide) We will begin rolling out in late May 2024 and expect to complete by late June 2024.

How this will affect your organization:

Users will be able to create and apply a model to detect and optionally extract sensitive information from files created or uploaded to the SharePoint document library. If you already have prebuilt models enabled, this new model option will show up automatically. 

You should communicate with your users about this new sensitive information processing model.
