A move to the cloud is an excellent opportunity to get your data governance ‘house’ in order, and offers many capabilities for ‘doing compliance better’.

On the flip side, the cloud can present general security concerns around access management and risk aversion.

Cloud Essentials can help you get to grips with best practices when it comes to securing your systems and implementing strong governance controls that meet the many legislative challenges you need to address.

  • What GDPR controls do we need to apply to our data?
  • Are we using our Microsoft licence to its full capability when it comes to compliance?
  • How can we work with Microsoft retention & sensitivity labels?
  • Can we automatically classify and filter data as we migrate to Office 365/Azure?
  • Who should be responsible for setting policies?
  • Can we do more eDiscovery work in-house?

All these questions and more can be answered by tech-savvy legalise experts – a rare breed indeed.  

Its unique expertise at the intersect of technology & regulatory frameworks makes Cloud Essentials our preferred firm for risk & compliance advice.
