Microsoft security experts answer questions about how we protect information at Microsoft. We developed and implemented a data classification schema that consists of five labels to help protect data and documents. They describe how we use the labels, our efforts to educate people about classifying data and preventing data loss, and tools for automating information protection.
If it’s done right, security can enable all of the other aspects of digital transformation. See how improved security processes can enable enterprises to be more creative, innovative, and remain competitive in the last of our six-part series on enterprise security.
Property identity and access management are both critical in protecting an organization, particularly during its digital transformation. Learn how it’s done at Microsoft in this third episode of our six-part series on enterprise security.
A mobile workforce means that company information is no longer secured within a corporate network or on corporate devices. At Microsoft, we’re using Azure Information Protection to classify and label data—part of our strategy to protect information in our modern workplace. We’re teaching people to correctly label data with an intuitive classification framework, so persistent protection travels with it, wherever it is stored, sent, or shared.
At Microsoft, we’re on our way to becoming a cloud-only organization. We envision security in cloud computing where cloud identities and services will streamline how we support our mobile workforce and keep work and customer data secure. As we look toward a future where all devices will be connected to the intelligent cloud, we’re planning initiatives that will help us provide data protection in a device-agnostic, cloud-only environment.
