More info

"[The] enterprise subscription offers more products that aren't included in the lower level Small Business subscription - so you can pick and choose what you need - and you can do it on a user by user basis. Best of all, it allows us to retire Exchange servers - which have always been problematical, clunky, expensive to operate and maintain, and push it all back onto Microsoft. Now when there is an outage you can just sit back and wait for it to be fixed rather than put forth a herculean effort to figure out the obscure reason why it failed - often while working with Microsoft's support on their timetable and not yours."

How Office 365 can help you with GDPR

The first step towards GDPR compliance is to assess whether the GDPR applies to your organisation, and, if so, to what extent. This analysis starts with understanding what data you have and where it resides.

The GDPR regulates the collection, storage, use and sharing of “personal data.” Personal data is defined very broadly under the GDPR as any data that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person.

If your organisation has such data — in customer databases, in feedback forms filled out by your customers, in email content, in photos, in CCTV footage, in loyalty program records, in HR databases, or anywhere else — or wishes to collect it, and if the data belongs or relates to EU residents, then you need to comply with the GDPR. Note that personal data doesn’t need to be stored in the EU to be subject to the GDPR — the GDPR applies to data collected, processed or stored outside the EU if the data is tied to EU residents.

This is the link to the full 88-page General Data Protection Regulation. It is quite well-written.

Discover: Identify all of your personal data and where it resides

There are five several specific Office 365 solutions that can help you identify or manage access to personal data:

1. Data Loss Prevention (DLP) in Office and Office 365 can identify over 80 common sensitive data types including financial, medical, and personally identifiable information.

2. Office 365 Security & Compliance Center content search in the  can search across mailboxes, public folders, Office 365 Groups, Microsoft Teams, SharePoint Online sites, One Drive for Business locations and Skype for Business conversations.

3. Office 365 eDiscovery search can be used to find text and metadata in content across your Office 365 assets — SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, Skype for Business Online and Exchange Online.

4. Office 365 Advanced eDiscovery, powered by machine learning technologies, can help you identify documents that are relevant to a particular subject (for example, a compliance investigation) quickly and with better precision than traditional keyword searches or manual reviews of vast quantities of documents. Advanced eDiscovery can significantly reduce cost and effort to identify relevant documents and data relationships by using machine learning to train the system to intelligently explore large datasets and quickly zero in on what’s relevant — reducing the data prior to review.

5. Advanced Data Governance uses intelligence and machine-assisted insights to help you find, classify, set policies on, and take action to manage the lifecycle of the data that is most important to your organisation.

Manage: Govern how personal data is used and accessed

Office 365 solutions have several features that can help you manage personal data:

1. Office 365 Security & Compliance Center has data governance features that help you archive and preserve content in Exchange Online mailboxes, SharePoint Online sites and OneDrive for Business locations, and import data into your Office 365 organisation.

2. The Retention feature in Office 365 can help you manage the lifecycle of email and documents by keeping the content you need and removing content after it’s no longer required.

3. Advanced Data Governance uses intelligence and machine-assisted insights to help you find, classify, set policies on and take action to manage the lifecycle of the data that is most important to your organisation.

4. SharePoint Online's information management policies enable you to control how long to retain content, to audit what people do with content and to add barcodes or labels to documents.

5. Exchange Online's journaling can help you respond to legal, regulatory and organisational compliance requirements by recording inbound and outbound email communications.

Data classification

Data classification is an important part of any data governance plan. Adopting a classification scheme that applies throughout your organisation can be particularly helpful for responding to data subject requests, because it enables you to identify more readily and process personal data requests.

6. Data Loss Prevention (DLP) in Office and Office 365 can identify over 80 common sensitive data types including financial, medical, and personally identifiable information. In addition, DLP allows organisations to configure actions to be taken upon identification to protect sensitive information and prevent its accidental disclosure.

7. Advanced Data Governance uses intelligence and machine-assisted insights to help you find, classify, set policies on and take action to manage the lifecycle of the data that is most important to your organisation. Classify data based on automatic analysis and policy recommendations, then apply actions to preserve data in-place or purge what’s necessary. In-place data as well as third-party data sources can be ingested into Office 365 and classified by message type. Message type classification allows for the search, sort and export of the various data sources, which eases the process of performing eDiscovery reviews.

Protect: Establish controls to detect and respond to breaches

Data security is a complex area. There are many types of risk to identify and consider — ranging from physical intrusion or rogue employees to accidental loss or hackers. Building risk management plans and taking risk mitigation steps, such as password protection, audit logs and encryption, can help you ensure compliance.

The Microsoft cloud is specifically built to help you understand risks and to defend against them, and is more secure than on-premises computing environments in many ways. For example, Microsoft's data centres are certified to internationally recognised security standards; protected by 24-hour physical surveillance; and have strict access controls.

The Office 365 platform incorporates security at every level, from application development to physical data centres to end-user access. Office 365 applications include both built-in security features that simplify the process of protecting data and the flexibility for you to configure, manage and integrate security in ways that make sense for your unique business needs. The Office 365 compliance framework has over 1,000 controls that enables Microsoft to keep Office 365 up to date with evolving industry standards, including over 50 certifications or attestations.

Many security controls are available by default. SharePoint and OneDrive for Business, for instance, both use encryption for data in transit and at rest. In addition, you may configure and deploy digital certificates to obfuscate personal data and you can use Office Access controls to grant and restrict access to personal data.

Office 365 offers other features that help you safeguard data and identify when a data breach occurs:

1. Secure Score gives you insights into your security position and what features are available to reduce risk while balancing productivity and security. 

2. Exchange Online's Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) helps protect your email against new, sophisticated malware attacks in real time. It also allows you to create policies that help prevent your users from accessing malicious attachments or malicious websites linked through email. ATP for Exchange Online includes protection against unknown malware and viruses, time-of-click protection against malicious URLs, and rich reporting and URL trace capabilities.

3. Information Rights Management (IRM) helps you and your users prevent sensitive information from being printed, forwarded, saved, edited or copied by unauthorised individuals. With IRM in SharePoint Online, you can limit the actions that users can take on files that have been downloaded from lists or libraries, such as printing copies of the files or copying text from them. With IRM in Exchange Online, you can help prevent sensitive information in email messages and attachments from leaking via email, online and offline.

4. Mobile Device Management (MDM) for Office 365 lets you set up policies and rules to help secure and manage your users’ enrolled iPhones, iPads, Android devices and Windows phones. For example, you can remotely wipe a device and view detailed device reports. Office 365 also uses multi-factor authentication to help provide extra security.

Protect: Establish controls to detect and respond to breaches

Office 365 features several capabilities that help you identify and respond when a data breach occurs:

1. Threat Intelligence helps you proactively uncover and protect against advanced threats in Office 365. Deep insights into threats — available in part because of Microsoft’s global presence, the Intelligent Security Graph, and input from cyber threat hunters — help you quickly and effectively enable alerts, dynamic policies and security solutions.

2. Advanced Security Management enables you to identify high-risk and abnormal usage, alerting you to potential breaches. In addition, it allows you to set up activity policies to track and respond to high-risk actions and suspicious activity. And you can also get productivity app discovery, which lets you use the information from your organisation’s log files to understand and act on your users’ app usage in Office 365 and other cloud apps.

3. Advanced Threat Protection for Exchange Online helps protect your email against new, sophisticated malware attacks in real time. It also allows you to create policies that help prevent your users from accessing malicious attachments or malicious websites linked through email.

Report: Execute data requests and keep required documentation


Organisations processing personal data will need to keep records about the purposes of processing; the categories of personal data processed; the identity of third parties with whom data is shared; whether (and which) third countries receive personal data and the legal basis of such transfers; organisational and technical security measures; and data retention times applicable to various datasets. One way to achieve this is using auditing tools, which can help to ensure that any processing of data — whether it be collection, use, sharing, or otherwise — is tracked and recorded.

Microsoft cloud services offer embedded auditing services that can help you meet this standard.

In the Service Trust Portal, you can find comprehensive information about the various Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365 compliance, security, privacy and trust offerings, including reports and attestations. Third-party independent audit and GRC (governance, risk management, and compliance) assessment reports help you to stay up-to-date on how Microsoft cloud services comply with global standards that matter to your organisation. Trust documents can help you understand how Microsoft cloud services protect your data and how you can manage data security and compliance for your cloud services.


1. Office 365 Security & Compliance Center's Service Assurance gives you deep insights for conducting risk assessments, with details on Microsoft Compliance reports and transparent status of audited controls, including:

  •         Microsoft security practices for customer data that is stored in Office 365.
  •         Independent third-party audit reports of Office 365.
  •         Implementation and testing details for security, privacy, and compliance controls that help customers comply with standards, laws, and regulations across industries, such as ISO 27001 and ISO 27018, as well as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).   

2. Office 365 audit logs allow you to monitor and track user and administrator activities across workloads in Office 365, which help with early detection and investigation of security and compliance issues. Use the Office 365 Audit log search page to start recording user and admin activity in your organisation. After Office 365 prepares the audit log, you can search it for a broad range of activities, including uploads to OneDrive or SharePoint Online or user password resets. Exchange Online can be set up to track changes that are made by administrators, and track whenever a mailbox is accessed by someone other than the person who owns the mailbox.   

3. Customer Lockbox gives you authority over how a Microsoft support engineer may access your data during a help session. In cases where the engineer requires access to your data to troubleshoot and fix an issue, Customer Lockbox allows you to approve or reject the access request. If you approve it, the engineer is able to access the data. Each request has an expiration time, and once the issue is resolved, the request is closed and access is revoked.
