Introducing this guide
This guide is designed for Enterprise Vault administrators who want to use the Veritas Information Classifier to assign classification tags to all new and existing archived content. When the users of applications such as Enterprise Vault Search, Compliance Accelerator, and Discovery Accelerator conduct searches or reviews, they can filter items according to the tags that the Veritas Information Classifier has assigned to them.
The Veritas Information Classifier evaluates the items that you submit for classification against a set of policies. Each policy specifies the conditions that the items must meet to be assigned a specific classification tag. For example, a policy may look for items whose contents include a credit card number and assign the tag "Credit-Card" to any that do. The Veritas Information Classifier includes over 50 built-in classification policies, which cover many of the data protection regulations and corporate standards worldwide. For example, you can meet privacy regulations such as the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) through policies to detect personally identifiable information. You can also create custom policies.
Besides assigning classification tags, the Veritas Information Classifier can also update the retention categories of items, mark items for deletion, and tag them for inclusion in (or exclusion from) Compliance Accelerator review sets.
