What our clients are saying about our workshops

We found the process of completing the Microsoft 365 Compliance Assessment with Cloud Essentials very useful. It was a catalyst to bring together all the stakeholders in the project and to build together a prioritised roadmap. We really benefitted from Cloud Essentials' understanding of the inner workings of Microsoft Purview, combined with their knowledge of the legislative and regulatory compliance landscape. It's provided us with a springboard for success as we prioritise improving data governance and reducing data risk.

Compliance Assessment Client

“Cloud Essentials has been essential to BulkSMS in ensuring we advance our data protection maturity in the local and global markets. We engaged with both the Data Privacy Assessment and Advisory Workshop and the Data Classification Taxonomy Workshop, which were run professionally by Cloud Essentials. In the workshops the Cloud Essentials data privacy team did a deep dive into the complexities of our operations and BulkSMS has benefited from their expert legal, compliance and technical advice in future-proofing our data protection programme.”

Privacy Officer

"I found Cloud Essentials’ approach to dealing with the process of demystifying data classification to be very effective at taking what seemed like a daunting and complex environment and breaking it down into sensible and easily consumable parts. Their depth of knowledge in this space is impressive and as a result of our interaction with them, our own depth of knowledge has increased markedly. I would recommend them with confidence."

Managing Director

"The Cloud Essentials team has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the Microsoft realm which has added massive value to our business."
