Scenario:

Corporate policy states that sales employees should not be storing customer credit card information especially credit card numbers on the file servers.  As the administrator of the file sever you have been tasked with locating any files that have what look like suspected credit card numbers based on known numerical stings.  You have automated the process and classify the card based off of vender.

It is now time to use FCI to protect the discovered files with RMS Encryption.

Let’s get started.
