Body:

The Office 365 Compliance Center contains the key compliance-related features for an Office 365 admin to manage compliance across Office 365, Exchange Online, and SharePoint Online. This new management interface represents our evolving compliance offering, which will eventually span all Office 365 compliance-related features and help you meet your legal, regulatory, and organizational compliance requirements. Consolidating compliance functionality across services into this single area will make compliance features easier to access and enhance your end-to-end task-based experience.

Compliance Center fea​tures

The functionality in the Compliance Center is grouped into feature areas, each of which is described in the following table.

   

Feature

Description

Documentation

Archiving

Use the Archiving page to enable or disable users’ archive mailboxes, which provide users with an alternate storage location for historical messaging data. When archive mailboxes are enabled, an archive policy will automatically move messages from a user’s primary mailbox to their archive mailbox after a specified period. The default archive policy that is assigned to mailboxes moves messages to the archive mailbox two years after the date a message is delivered to the mailbox.

Auditing

eDiscovery

Use the eDiscovery cases page to manage your organization’s eDiscovery cases, which you can use to identify, hold, search, and export content found in Exchange mailboxes and SharePoint sites. All eDiscovery cases for the selected eDiscovery Center are listed on the eDiscovery page. You can go to you organization’s eDiscovery Center or you can go to any eDiscovery case from this page. You can also create new cases from this page and delete cases you no longer need.

Retention

Use the Retention page to manage the lifecycle of email and documents by keeping the content you need and removing content after it’s no longer required. While your organization may be required to retain content for a period of time because of compliance, legal, or other business requirements, keeping content longer than required might create unnecessary legal risk. These retention features let you manage how long your organization retains content.

  • Retention tags and policies   Use to manage the email lifecycle by archiving or deleting messages that are older than a specified period. In Exchange Online, a default retention policy is assigned to a mailbox when it’s created.
  • Document deletion policies   Use to delete documents located in SharePoint Online site collections after a specific period of time. You can enforce a single mandatory policy on all site collections created from the same site collection template or you can allow site owners to choose from several policies that you centrally create and manage. You can also allow site owners to opt out altogether if they decide a policy doesn’t apply to their content.

Permissions

Use the Permissions page to give users access to the compliance features that are available within the Compliance Center. Permissions in the Compliance Center are based on the same Role Based Access Control (RBAC) permissions model that is used in Exchange Online. However, the role group membership from Exchange Online isn’t shared with the Compliance Center. To access the Compliance Center, users need to be a member of one or more Compliance Center role groups that are listed on the Permissions page.

Archiving in the Office 365 Compliance Center

Archiving in Office 365 (called In-Place Archiving) provides users with an alternate storage location in which to store historical messaging data. In-Place Archiving allows you to meet your organization’s message retention and eDiscovery requirements. You can use your organization’s mailbox retention policy to move mailbox content to users’ archive mailbox. Exchange Search and In-Place eDiscovery search a user’s archive mailbox in addition to the user’s primary mailbox. When archiving is enabled, users can store messages in their archive mailbox (also called an In-Place Archive). Users can access their archive mailboxes by using Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Web App. Using either of these client applications, users can view messages in their archive mailbox and move or copy messages between their primary mailbox and their archive mailbox. And when archive mailboxes are enabled, your organization can take advantage of the default retention policy (in Microsoft’s messaging records management technology) that is assigned to every mailbox to automatically move items that are two years or older from a user’s primary mailbox to their archive mailbox.

Use the eDiscovery cases page in the Office 365 Compliance Center to access and manage eDiscovery cases in the eDiscovery Center of your SharePoint Online organization. Using the Compliance Center is quick and easy way to go to the eDiscovery Center, manage existing eDiscovery cases, create new eDiscovery cases, and close eDiscovery cases that are no longer needed.

 

Retention allows you to manage the lifecycle of content in Office 365 such as email and documents by keeping the content you need and then removing the content after it’s no longer required.

The Office 365 Compliance Center lets you grant permissions to users who perform compliance tasks like Exchange archiving and auditing, SharePoint eDiscovery, Data Loss Prevention in SharePoint and OneDrive, and so on. Users are only able to perform the tasks that you explicitly grant them access to. To access the Compliance Center, users need to either be an Office 365 global admin or a member of one or more Compliance Center role groups.

Permissions in the Compliance Center are based on the Role Based Access Control (RBAC) permissions model. This is the same permissions model that’s used by Exchange so if you’re familiar with Exchange, granting permissions in the Compliance Center will be very similar. It’s important to remember, however, that Exchange role groups and Compliance Center role groups are don’t share membership or permissions. While both have an Organization Management role group, they aren’t the same. The permissions they grant, and the members of the role groups, are different. There’s a list of Compliance Center role groups later in this topic.
