Data protection with Microsoft purview for M365

When it comes to data security, it’s dangerous to assume your organization is fully protected. Often, the greatest cyber security risks are internal, stemming from the everyday use of your Microsoft Office 365 apps.

Outlook, SharePoint, OneNote, Teams, these everyday communication and collaboration tools may be the biggest cyber security threat to your organization because of what you think is protected. Even if you set up the best security and monitoring devices for your corporate data, without understanding the context of who is accessing your data, and how and where they are using it, you cannot fully protect yourself. This aspect is central to compliance with Quebec’s Law 25.
