Security, compliance, and privacy

Protecting sensitive data is imperative for the protection of your staff and programs—and for the success of your organization. Compromised data, and cyberattacks can put beneficiaries at risk, disrupt operations, and expose your organization to liability. Microsoft contractually commits to a robust Data Processing Agreement, the EU model clauses, and a HIPAA Business Associate Agreement to all customers. No need to worry about security on mobile devices either.
