Microsoft Sensitivity Labels: Traffic Light Protocol (TLP)

Techtron has deployed the following Microsoft Sensitivity Labels internally.

This is why Techtron adopted TLP as our new baseline Sensitivity Label set:

  1. To take advantage of the “color coding” feature in Sensitivity labels;
  2. To simplify the structure, specifically by removing the need for sub-labels;
  3. To eliminate differences between labels for “files and emails” vs “groups and sites,” and make sure they are more consistent with each other–so that they “track together” in meaning and application;
  4. And finally, I wanted labels that aligned with a more widely known protocol.
