3 Ways Microsoft’s Compliance Manager Helps Meet Regulatory and Data Protection Requirements

How to meet the requirements of GDPR, HIPAA, ISO 27001, ISO 27018, NIST 800-53, NIST 800-171, and many others with Compliance Manager.

The need to meet the demands of various regulatory bodies seems to grow daily. This, plus any internal corporate edicts and the job of your company's compliance team, can seem overwhelming. According to a Thomson Reuters report, more than half of respondents said they spend over four hours a week tracking and analyzing regulatory developments and one out of four are devoting more than eight hours a week to compliance management.

Microsoft is aiming to ease your compliance burden with the release of Compliance Manager.

It can include emails, instant messaging, documents, presentations, CAD/CAM files, databases, voicemail, audio and video files, social media, and web sites, and any other electronic information that could be significant evidence in a lawsuit.

The Path to GDPR Compliance

The Path to GDPR Compliance

There are big changes coming for organizations that conduct business in, or store and collect data tied to citizens of the European Union (EU).

The Road to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Compliance with Microsoft and Interlink

The Road to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Compliance with Microsoft and Interlink

In the ever-changing digital age, one of the most important things is data protection.
