Shine a light into the dark to uncover hidden risk and dark data and learn how to protect and govern your Microsoft 365 environment with confidence
Through a series of engagements and interactive workshops, our multi-disciplinary team of compliance and tech experts deliver a tailored roadmap and recommendations to provide the clarity and direction required to make a flying start. We benchmark your organisation’s current position by assessing your Microsoft technology controls against your compliance obligations.
We engage with key stakeholders across your business to align understanding and working practices and we analyse your environment using Microsoft 365 tools to help you understand your risk landscape.
Our team is able to break down the barriers between IT, Business and Risk using the appropriate language for each audience to get the necessary buy in and give advice about deployment of Microsoft Purview technology in your business.
The outcomes from our Microsoft 365 compliance assessment include:
A view on your current position on compliance in Microsoft 365 and other areas of vulnerability
A greater understanding on what’s available to you from Microsoft 365
Engagement in high quality conversations on key topics with relevant stakeholders across your organisation
A realistic roadmap for deployment and documented recommendations to reduce risk
Quick wins on using capability that you already own, increasing value from your licence spend
Guidance on improving the effectiveness of your compliance programme using Microsoft controls
The insights and roadmap generated at the end of the Assessment form a robust basis for your ongoing compliance journey. Tailored for your unique business needs, we can help you on this journey with our Compliance Accelerator Programme.

“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.”
"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."
