Introduction to Microsoft Compliance

Gain a greater understanding of the Microsoft Purview 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 session 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 Solution

Hosted by a tech savvy, passionate compliance specialist this training session provides an introduction to Microsoft Purview 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 training session removes the burden on IT and compliance professionals to ‘self-learn’ and ‘self navigate’ their way through Office 365 compliance features and licensing. It also means you can use the workshop to ask questions and receive practical advice.

What our clients are saying about our compliance services

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."
