Compliance Workshop Data Risk Management
3-Day Workshop

Not long ago, managing data just meant dealing with documents and emails. Pervasive digital technology and the rapid shift to remote work have greatly expanded the information universe. Much of that data becomes stale or unused immediately after creation and contains information that could impose a compliance risk. 

 

Address compliance risks head on Protecting information—wherever it goes—is critical to ensuring trust and meeting compliance requirements. But first, you need to know what data you have, where it is, how it’s being used, and compliance risks that may exist.

Compliance Workshop Data Risk Management gives you the insights you need to better discover, protect, and govern your corporate data.

 

By the end  of this workshop, experts in Microsoft compliance will provide you with a:

Risk Check is the core activity of the Compliance Workshop Data Risk Management. 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. Data Risk Check leverages automated Microsoft 365 tools and services to discover data stored in the Microsoft Cloud and identify potential problem area

The automated discovery process will analyse your existing data for:

 

  • Sensitive information and intellectual property
  • Unused or “stale” data
  • Risky or suspicious activates

Hybrid Meetings
1-Day Workshop

Do more with Microsoft Teams

 

Meetings are an essential part of any business. They enable collaboration, creativity and innovation, and help us foster relationships with our peers.

 

But research shows that spending too much time in meetings or attending low-quality meetings can undermine our ability to focus on cognitively demanding tasks. We also know that, since moving to remote work, people are spending on average 10% more time in meetings.

As standards around how, when and where we meet change, our reliance on technology will only increase. The good news is, there are ways to improve the efficiency and quality of the entire meeting experience (i.e. what happens before, during and after a meeting) with Microsoft Teams which has been proven to reduce the total number and duration of meetings.
