New White Paper Details Privacy Safeguards of Office 365
Privacy is a top priority for many users of cloud computing, so Microsoft today is releasing a white paper that details many of the specific data protection policies, procedures and tools that have been integrated into Office 365, our newest cloud productivity service.
I recently returned from a two-week trip to discuss a range of privacy topics with customers and regulators in Australia and New Zealand. In virtually every conversation, I was asked about Microsoft’s approach to data protection in our cloud services. Microsoft representatives around the world report hearing similar questions regularly in each of their regions.
These questions are understandable. Entrusting information that is core to the success of your organization to a cloud service provider is a big decision. And information about the privacy policies of many cloud services is either hard to find or indecipherable to all but the most astute IT professionals.
Today’s whitepaper, “Privacy in the Public Cloud: The Office 365 Approach,” provides detailed answers to the most common cloud privacy questions in the context of one of our most mature cloud services for businesses, public sector agencies and educational institutions.
