Office 365 and the GDPR

If you are looking for ways to ensure that the data on your firm's network or a client's network is compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union when it becomes effective on May 25, 2018, you may find some help in Office 365.

Microsoft's Office 365 contains a compliance manger which will generate a compliance score. The score is based on the risk of failing to control data properly.

The compliance manager not only assists with tracking compliance with the GDPR, but also with ISO 27001 (for information security); ISO 27018 (for the protection of Personally Identifiable Information (PII)); NIST 800- 53 (security controls for federal information systems), NIST 800- 171 (unclassified information in non-federal systems), and HIPAA.
