Exceptions for Multiple Policies

Created: 23 Jan 2013 | 4 comments

Greetings:

We have recently enabled some of the 'Acceptable Use' policies in our DLP application and have found that there are a large number of false positives generated when our users visit certain web sites (such as news sites). I have created exceptions for the sites that are causing the false positives, but since we have 5 of the acceptable use policies active, I need to re-enter the exceptions for each of the policies that we are using. Is there a way to create a central file of all of these exceptions so that any updates only need to be performed in one location?

Thank you for any help that you may provide.

Maybe you can try to add these exceptions on the configuration of your Agent Settings, not on the policy.

If a forum post solves your problem, please flag it as a solution. If you like an article, blog post or download vote it up.

This concerns a Policy on a network monitor (thus no agent).

I have occasionally been able to accomplish this by using a data identifier.  You can do some pretty amazing things with all the validation options and the basic scripting that is available.  Then you only need to modify the data identifier to modify all the policies.
