Client: Global Insurance Company
Cloud Essentials was challenged to answer three critical questions as part of the Microsoft Compliance Assessment:
What was the client’s current risk profile and exposure based on their existing data?
What opportunities were there to tap into unused functionality to derive greater value from existing Microsoft licences?
Where and how should the client begin to address any identified risks and opportunities?
The Discovery phase of the Microsoft Compliance Assessment covered the two topics of business and data. By engaging with stakeholders across the business, Cloud Essentials were able to build up an understanding of our client’s environment, goals, challenges and vulnerabilities. From a data perspective, Cloud Essentials used Microsoft risk discovery tools to identify stale and/or sensitive data residing within onsite and cloud locations.
The Cloud Essentials team includes Compliance/Risk professionals as well as IT/Technical experts. Our multidisciplinary team were able to engage with a wide range of business stakeholders to benchmark current compliance maturity (active controls) against relevant regulations.
Within the ‘exploration’ theme, the Cloud Essentials team used their in-depth knowledge of the Microsoft Purview toolset to explore opportunities to improve compliance with quick wins from existing unused (or underused) functionality.
Cloud Essentials created a practical roadmap of achievable steps to expedite results. The client was then able to use the roadmap to build a business case for investment.
