Compliance and risk management is often a board- or CEO-level issue. The risks of hefty fines and bad PR from non-compliance are severe. IT is usually responsible for implementing compliance controls and for working with compliance and legal officers to manage the day-to-day risk in an organization.
After reading Microsoft 365 Compliance, you will be prepared to have a well-informed conversation with your compliance and legal officers to determine how to work together to identify specific compliance requirements for your organization. You will be able to implement those requirements yourself using Microsoft 365 features. Compliance and legal officers will understand how to communicate their technical requirements to IT.
Author Erica Toelle helps you build a solid compliance foundation by teaching you about topics such as information protection, retention, records management, eDiscovery, auditing, compliance with common regulations, managing insider risks, supervising communications, data loss prevention, protecting sensitive information, and using machine learning to reduce compliance costs.
