Microsoft Information Protection

Microsoft’s new unified approach to all-up defense, Microsoft Purview Information Protection, is the culmination of Microsoft’s attempts to streamline and integrate its security features holistically for its Azure and Office 365 service offerings. Information security, compliance, and protection are at the forefront of ensuring that content and communications inside and outside of the organization are managed accordingly – all while making sure that the users’ experience is not negated.

In this workshop, we take you through the 4 offerings from Microsoft:

  • Azure Information Protection
  • Office 365 Information Protection
  • Windows Information Protection
  • Microsoft Cloud App Security

Introduction and Overview (Duration: 30 Minutes)

What is Microsoft Purview Information Protection? Microsoft Purview Information Protection (formerly Microsoft Information Protection) helps you discover, classify, protect, and govern sensitive information wherever it lives or travels. 

It provides the following features:

  • Shields organizations from breaches and leaks
  • Provides a protective layer when sharing content inside or outside of the organization
  • Keeps IT and management informed of data anomalies
  • Ensures data and device compliance

Session 1 (Duration: 60 Minutes) 

Azure Information Protection: Protection of your sensitive information anywhere, all the time

Being able to ensure consistent data protection of your organizational and user content, be it on-premises or in the cloud, is imperative in today’s content-rich world.

With Azure Information Protection, companies can:

  • Classify data based on its sensitivity
  • Protect data at all times
  • Track activities on shared data
  • Ensure secure collaboration

Knowing that your sensitive information is not only encrypted, but also adequately protected from prying and harmful eyes fosters a rich collaborative culture internally as well as with partners and customers.

Session 2 (Duration: 60 Minutes)

Office 365 Information Protection: Your security and compliance framework

It’s one thing to encrypt and protect your data from prying eyes, but what use is that effort if the data is not retained or protected against loss? With Office 365 Information Protection, Microsoft provides organizations the ability to:

  • Protect content from deletion
  • Adhere to compliance standards (GDPR, HIPAA, etc.)
  • Discover content for litigation
  • Manage access to content based on rules

By implementing the correct rules, organizations are able to mitigate risk and remain compliant, and, at the same time, ensure that content is identified, classified, retained, and disposed of appropriately.


Session 3 (Duration: 60 Minutes)

Windows Information Protection: Manage your devices effectively

Mobile Device Management, including Windows 10 devices, has always been tricky to manage – as employees often bring their own devices which they use to access company information. With Windows Information Protection through Microsoft Intune, companies are able to:

  • Split what is corporate and personal data
  • Lockdown, remote wipe, and encrypt data on compromised devices
  • Create a risk profile of devices based on type and location
  • Manage applications running on devices

By profiling the devices that access your company information in the cloud and on-prem, your organization will be better equipped with the necessary tools to manage corporate and non-corporate devices uniformly.

Session 4 (Duration: 60 Minutes)

Microsoft Cloud App Security (MCAS): Your cloud applications secured

Organizations struggle daily with identifying and managing the number of cloud applications deployed and used by employees. Added to this, users often use their own applications in conjunction with company data. MCAS provides businesses with the ability to:

  • Discover and manage Shadow IT
  • Protect data access to cloud apps
  • Remediate cyberthreats across cloud apps
  • Ensure compliance of cloud apps

By being able to leverage Microsoft Intelligent Security Graph for monitoring cloud applications, organizations can detect threats proactively while ensuring that company information is not compromised.

Recap and Whiteboarding (Duration: 30 minutes)

By working through the above sessions attendees will be equipped with the necessary understanding of how Microsoft 365 Security solutions work together and how they can ensure total information protection within their organization.
