Navigating Data Protection & Risk in the Cloud Era Using Intelligent Technology Solutions


Produced and Sponsored by:





Digital transformation has led to an explosion of data that grows exponentially every day, resulting in a complex digital environment that poses new risks. Adding to that complexity are new regulations and standards that are constantly emerging and evolving. The unfortunate reality is, there are new risks companies face including hacking, data leaking, security breaches, and more.

Microsoft also faces these challenges and is aiming to invest in compliance and risk management to help themselves and their customers more easily safeguard privacy, address regulations and standards, and mitigate insider risks.

Join this video webcast and gain a better understanding of:

  • Strategies in dealing with the challenges faced by legal and compliance professionals.
  • IT services where business decisions have already been made and there is pressure to avoid delaying technical innovation.
  • Why a general understanding of technical services and the issues at hand is lacking among lawyers.
  • Importance of securing service provider transparency in communicating about potential security compromises and service provider obligations with respect to response.
  • Why enterprise cybersecurity responsibilities don’t simply transfer to the cloud service provider
  • How to develop the ability to advise clients on how their enterprise risk management programs interact with those of the cloud service provider, and what questions counsel needs to ask of each party.
