Discover The Microsoft Approach To Compliance In The Cloud

Are you responsible for managing regulatory compliance or planning governance policies at your organization? Is your leadership team hesitant to embrace Cloud-based services due to concerns about trust or compliance? Did you know that Microsoft will be rolling out locally deployed Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online services from two new Canadian Data Centres in 2016? How will they affect your choices?

Please join New Signature and AvePoint for an informal Breakfast Briefing and Q&A Session as we delve in to what drives trust, what constitutes the trust gap between on-premises and Cloud services, and the thought processes your peers go through when making trust decisions.

Bruce Cowper is a Trusted Cloud Advisor for Microsoft, responsible for the Microsoft Trusted Cloud initiative focused on driving awareness of the security, privacy and control, transparency and compliance aspects of Microsoft’s global cloud services.

Trust: The final barrier to cloud adoption? How much do you trust your enterprise cloud provider? Trust is a key factor in both on-premises and cloud services. However, even as the migration to the Cloud increases pace, there continues to be a significant gap between how much people trust their on-premises infrastructure versus the enterprise Cloud services they consume. In many cases trust or lack thereof could be based on external perspectives such as the media or feedback from peers, but more often it is based on your own experiences.

Microsoft Online Services have the potential to create tremendous value for you organization, but you need to know how to stay compliant in the Cloud. We will provide you with an overview of Microsoft’s Azure Security Center, the Office 365 Compliance Center and we’ll discuss the core capabilities such as Auditing, Archiving, eDiscovery, DLP, Retention and Search.

For those customers with more advanced auditing and compliance needs, we will introduce you to the value of AvePoint Compliance Guardian and highlight its capabilities around ongoing policy compliance, monitoring, detailed reporting, and granular incident tracking. Register today!
