Content Control List (CCL)

A Content Control List (CCL) is a set of conditions that describe structured file content.

A CCL may describe a single type of data (for example, a postal address or social security number), or a combination of data types (for example, a project name near the term "confidential").

You can use SophosLabs Content Control Lists that are provided by Sophos, or create custom CCLs from within Sophos Enterprise Console.

SophosLabs CCLs provide expert definitions for common financial and personally identifiable data types, for example, credit card numbers, social security numbers, postal addresses, or email addresses. Advanced techniques, such as checksums, are used in SophosLabs Content Control Lists to increase the accuracy of sensitive data detection.
