April 30, 2019

As data continues to grow exponentially and travel across organizational boundaries, privacy and compliance professionals play an increasingly strategic role within organizations. Several updates—announced today—for Microsoft 365 provide organizations with more control and options to strengthen their data privacy practices, including:

  • New capabilities for Microsoft 365 E5 and E5 Compliance, such as the new Office 365 Advanced Message Encryption feature, data investigation capabilities, Microsoft Teams compliance features, and a new Advanced eDiscovery experience.
  • The ability to use Compliance Manager to get automated updates of security controls and create your own assessments—including on-premises and non-Microsoft applications—against any regulation or standard, so you can manage compliance across data assets in a unified way.
