Have Office 365? it could help you become GDPR compliant.

With the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May, the requirement on organisations to have robust compliance tools is essential. To help this Microsoft have introduced a new application within the Office 365 and Microsoft Cloud stack called Compliance Manager.

You’ll find the application within your Office 365 email applications which is available free on Business and Enterprise plans. The app allows organisations to assess and manage their compliance requirements all from a single online portal.

Microsoft’s Compliance Manager conducts real-time assessments of risk and benchmarks them against data protection regulations; giving feedback, recommendations and guidance on actions which need to be taken.
