GDPR and Office 365

blog0 comments

On the 25th May, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) enforcement began, which imposes new rules on any organisations that offer goods and services to people in the European Union, or that collect and analyze data tied to EU residents, regardless of where the organization is physically located.
In short, we have all had to comply with GDPR! Microsoft was no exception!

Whilst complying with GDPR, Microsoft also announced many Office 365 solutions can help organisations identify and manage access to personal data, including:

· Data Loss Prevention
· Advanced Data Governance
· Office 365 eDiscovery
· Customer Lockbox

Another GDPR requirement is to ensure protection with personal data against security threats.
Current Office 365 features that safeguard data and identify when a data breach occurs include:
· Advanced Threat Protection
· Advanced Security Management
· Office 365 Audit logs

Of course, this is just a summary list of these features. If we went into each feature in detail you would be reading all day! However, if you wish to find out more on these Office 365 features, or with assistance in managing GDPR for your organisation, just let us know by calling 02890945542 or email
