Compliance Workshop: Data Risk Management

Protecting your organisation information wherever it resides is critical to fulfilling regulation obligations and meeting compliance requirements. However, you need to know exactly what data you have, its volume, where it is, how it’s being used, who uses it, and what compliance risks that may exist.

The Compliance Workshop: Data Risk Management will give you the insights you need to better discover, protect, and govern your corporate data, and will provide you with a:

  • Data Risk Check report that includes findings and insights
  • A list of recommendations and actionable next steps that will help mitigate any identified compliance risks
  • Detailed assessment of your strategic objectives, influences, and priorities for compliance
  • Hands-on opportunity to experience what integrated compliance looks like, including the latest tools and methods
  • Set of long-term recommendations for your compliance strategy
Register for your workshop

Data Risk Check uncovers data that can cause a compliance risk

Data Risk Check is the core activity of the Compliance Workshop Data Risk Management. To ensure comprehensive results, the activity is spread out over several weeks to allow time to run on top of your cloud infrastructure and surface compliance risks in organisational data.

The Data Risk Check uses automated Microsoft 365 tools and services to discover where data stored in the Microsoft Cloud and identify any potential problem areas, such as:

  • Sensitive information and intellectual property
  • Unused or long-term dormant data
  • Risky or suspicious activities

Identity Workshop

With increased remote working, the use of personal devices and cloud apps, such as those contained in Microsoft 365, your organisation’s data is no longer centralised. This can leave you vulnerable to identity attacks and data breaches. The foundation of cybersecurity is to identify your legitimate users and give them proper access to the information and tools they need to do their job, while keeping out malicious persons or criminals.

Identity attacks can manifest themselves as suspicious user and sign-in behavior in your environment or constant suspicious requests. This Identity Workshop will help you find and identity risks happening in your environment, give you insights on your application landscape, and improve your identity security posture.

Register for your workshop

The workshop will help you:

  • Understand your identity goals and objectives
  • Define your existing and desired identity security posture
  • Provide insights into applications used within your environment (sanctioned and unsanctioned by IT)
  • Showcase core IT and user security scenarios
  • Develop a joint action plan based key results, recommendations, and next steps
