A content filtering policy consists of the following components:
Symantec provides the predefined templates that you can use to create content filtering policies for specific scenarios. For example, the Credit Card template provides predefined conditions to detect a credit card number in incoming or outgoing email messages. You can also use a blank template to create a policy that does not relate to any of the predefined templates.
You can define how you want Symantec Messaging Gateway to address subsequent policy actions. When a policy is triggered, you may still want to have Symantec Messaging Gateway perform any non-conflicting actions for the next policy that it evaluates. Or you can specify that for the next policy evaluated, to only create incidents in an incident folder or send a notification if those actions are specified. Another option would be that once a message triggers a content filtering policy, no subsequent content filtering policies are evaluated. This option conserves scanning resources.
