After some Microsoft Cloud news Brenton and I dive into an introduction to Microsoft 365 and why it is important for Microsoft, customers and partners. We look at what it comprises and what the major benefits are. We discuss how security and device management are the heart of the product and why that is so important in light of recent compliance legislation.

Episode 175 - Compliance

March 8th, 2018

Brenton and I talk about the importance of data compliance in light of recent legislation updates in both Australia and overseas. This means that it is very important to firstly understand what your obligations are when it comes to personal data but to also ensure you own systems are compliant. Technology is not the only solution required here, you'll need policy as well as training to help people better understand what their responsibility is. We cover off all the major highlights as well as give you some suggestions of how you should be approaching this with your Office 365 tenants.
