Edit a data security policy

Data security policies allow you to control how your organization’s data is shared with users and apps. What is a data security policy?

If your organization’s security needs change, you can edit an existing policy.

You can only edit policies that cover data that you have permission to access. If you need to edit a policy on behalf of another team, you may need to temporarily grant yourself product access.
