Compliance Overview Workshop

Gain a greater understanding of the Microsoft 365 compliance technologies to drive improved adoption across your organisation.

Effectively managing an organisation’s compliance efforts requires all hands on deck. We recommend a broad attendee list for this workshop that includes those responsible for compliance and personal information, senior leadership who will sponsor compliance technology adoption and those responsible for the Microsoft cloud ecosystem.

Our Advisory

Hosted by a tech savvy, passionate compliance specialist this workshop is a half day introduction to Microsoft compliance capabilities and their ability to serve your regulatory obligations.

The session includes a high level tour and demonstrations within Microsoft Compliance Centre to familiarise and demystify the technology for compliance professionals.

A straight talking description of regulatory requirements brings meaning to the technical controls for IT professionals.


By levelling up understanding across all stakeholders you will be in a better position to trigger initiatives to drive the compliance journey forward across your Microsoft estate.

A facilitated session removes the burden on IT and compliance professionals to ‘self-learn’ and ‘self navigate’ their way through Office 365 compliance features and licencing. It also means you can use the workshop to ask questions and receive practical advice.
