McAfee DLP policy

Dear Sir

we have issue with McAfee DLP - some excel file that contains numbers is separate cascaded columns blocked by McAfee DLP as an Credit Card while it's only separate numbers and not related to any type of credit card

Our Bank policy is to apply PCI - so no credit card number can be sent through emails without masking

i found that incident list display this number as credit card  - 2248 2249 2250 2251

please advice to solve this issue

Re: McAfee DLP policy

Could you please confirm the Classification set in the rule getting triggered? I used default PCI Classification and issue is not reproducible. Also I would suggest to share the screenshot of the Rule Configuration. Thanks.
