Discover Sensitive Data Workshop

Protecting information—wherever it goes—is critical to ensuring trust and meeting compliance requirements. But first, you need to know what data you have, where it is, how it’s being used, and compliance risks that may exist.

The Data Risk Check is the core activity of the Discover Sensitive Data workshop. The activity is spread out over several weeks to allow time to run on top of your cloud infrastructure and surface privacy and regulatory risks in organizational data. Data Risk Check leverages automated Microsoft 365 tools and services to discover data stored in the Microsoft Cloud and identify potential problem areas.

The automated discovery process will analyze your existing data for:

  • Sensitive information and intellectual property
  • Unused or “stale” data
  • Risky or suspicious activities

The Data Risk Check in its core will identify privacy and regulatory risks in Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Teams and can be extended with optional modules to scan on-premises data repositories and Windows 10 Endpoints.

By the end of this workshop, experts in Microsoft compliance will provide you with a:

  • Data Risk Check report that includes findings and insights from the automated discovery process
  • A list of recommendations and actionable next steps that will help mitigate the identified privacy and regulatory risks
  • Clear look into Microsoft’s approach to mitigating and controlling privacy and regulatory risks
  • Compliance Manager Tenant Assessment report with suggestions and top key improvement actions
  • Set of long-term recommendations on your compliance  strategy, with key initiatives and tactical next steps
