General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an important step forward for clarifying and enabling individual privacy rights.
Microsoft has extensive expertise in protecting data, championing privacy, and complying with complex regulations. Microsoft adheres to a set of privacy principles to all customers. We believe that SMBs utilising the Microsoft Cloud are taking the first necessary steps to becoming GDPR compliant and gain the trust of your customers.
As the GDPR enforcement date nears, your business may soon need to demonstrate that it has taken appropriate steps to protect your customers’ personal data in response to regulatory audits and information requests.
Implementing appropriate security controls is a key step to demonstrating accountability. Equally important is putting the right processes in place—
A few benefits of the Microsoft Cloud include:
- Public preview of new privacy resources across the Microsoft Cloud.
- New capabilities to help with DSRs across Microsoft Cloud services for GDPR.
- New audit-ready, privileged access management capabilities in Office 365.
- Enabling a single Office 365 tenant to span across multiple Office 365 datacenter geographies.
