Encryption in Office 365

Are you interested in encryption? ​Protecting sensitive customer data is a top priority for Office 365. Encryption is used to protect customer data stored in Office 365 and Exchange when communicating with users inside and outside your organization. It’s important for administrators to not only understand how encryption is used and configured but also to understand what users need to do to help reduce support calls. This course looks at encryption from the perspective of administrators, senders and recipients. Don’t miss it!

Data loss prevention (DLP) in Office 365

Every day in the news, you hear stories about security breaches—either deliberate or accidental—compromising sensitive data. Plus, each year, hundreds of millions of additional records are compromised and, although they may be less noteworthy, they are just as sensitive. In this course, examine how to configure, customize, and monitor the data loss prevention (DLP) features provided through Office 365. Learn how the rich DLP functionality seamlessly integrates into Microsoft Exchange, Outlook, Outlook Web App (OWA) and SharePoint, providing context, user education and information protection.
