Congratulations. You've come to the end of the course. Let's review what you've learned. We started off with a very quick intro to sensitivity labels and what they're used for. We then jumped right into a demo where you got to watch over my shoulder as I created a sensitivity label in Microsoft 365.

Once we had the sensitivity label created, we jumped into a second demo, where I showed you how to create a label policy that is used to publish the label that we created in the previous demo. At this point, you should have a basic understanding of how to create sensitivity labels and how to publish them with label policies.

To learn more about creating and publishing sensitivity labels in Microsoft 365, you can, and should, read Microsoft's published documentation. You should also keep an eye out for new courses on Cloud Academy, because we're always publishing new ones. Be sure to give this course a rating, and if you have any questions or comments, please let us know. As always, thanks for watching and happy learning.
