In the middle of May 2019, Compliance and security virtual conference took place and, in case you missed it, we’ve prepared the recap of some sessions for you. One of the presentations was hosted by Silvia Kingsmill, a Partner in the Risk Consulting practice at KPMG Canada, and the National Data Protection and Privacy Leader (yes, you’re not mistaken, very same KPMG from Big Four accounting firms). This session was devoted to the overview of the regulatory landscape. She has spoken about data privacy, cybersecurity, data governance, digital transformation, and what’s more important offered advice on how to reach compliance and improve the security posture of an organization.
Before we jump into the cloud app security implementation or the management processes, let’s talk about the cloud app security what it is and why would do we need cloud app security. It’s a Microsoft cloud-based solution that gives you insights into your suspicious user activities.
Recently we have discussed the subject of zero-trust network security, but at the Security and Compliance Virtual conference that took place recently, experts talked a lot about zero-trust architecture in Microsoft 365 environment, and we’ve decided to share some of the most interesting insights from the conference.
As the new technologies evolve and//in the online-first world we migrate our lives to the web, the legislation appears to protect the individuals’ privacy, as they share personal sensitive data on the Internet. Obviously, it’s great, but it implies profound changes in the IT infrastructure of every organization dealing with personally identifiable information (or PII). Let’s take this challenge and find out what pitfalls you may face trying to meet GDPR demands.
With these capabilities, users can easily apply sensitivity labels to documents and emails – based on the labels defined by your organization. The experience is built directly into Office apps, with no need for any special plugins or add-ons. It looks and feels like the familiar Office experience, which makes it easy for workers to use.
Perimeter-based networks protected by a firewall are familiar to anyone because they were so common. But the key word is “were”, because they are outdated now. They function assuming that machines and users within a perimeter are reliable – but it actually never was the case and least of all it applies to modern reality when Bring your own device (BOYD) and Bring your own cloud (BYOC) trends are in place, and cybercriminals are getting more sophisticated than ever before. The previous generation of networks cannot accommodate modern workstyles and cannot perform their main role of protecting data, as when the cyber-criminals compromise even one end-point within a perimeter, they can laterally move there to extract sensitive business data.
The key to success for the business is working smarter instead of working harder. The idea of cloud technologies which can make your work a lot easier is very tempting. That sounds great to the business folks until the IT guys come along and say there’s a whole bunch of work should be done to get there. Moreover, the cost of transition to the cloud is not limited by the licenses you buy but comprise multiple expenses that arise along the way. At this point, it suddenly seems that it is better to keep to traditional on-premises servers, install them yourself and manage them yourself. But it is a misconception as investing into aging infrastructure can actually do more harm in the long run. To break this vicious circle and reduce the cost of cloud transition FastTrack came to life.
Meetings in Teams include audio, video, and sharing. And because they’re online, you’ll always have meeting space and never need a room or projector.
