Understanding General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) within Office 365

As we move closer and closer to May 2018, understanding the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation’s (GDPR) is now even more important for all companies. Any organization that stores data related to European Citizens in any form will become subject to the rules. Most organizations also utilize Software-as-a-service which itself is probably GDPR compliant, however the moment your organization uses it and its data, sharing with others, you also need to be GDPR compliant. Microsoft themselves have been through this process and now have capabilities built into Office 365 that can help you as an organization become GDPR complaint.

To help you along this path, join me for a Webinar on February 14th, 2 pm Central Europe Time, which is part of the European SharePoint, Office 365 & Azure Conference GDPR Training Day. The webinar will explain GDPR, and how this can be supported within Office 365.
