Securing our Enterprise Episode One

Balancing security in the midst of a digital transformation

Nov 7, 2017   |  

New technologies. Streamlined processes. More agile models. Enhanced customer experience.

These are just a handful of the various benefits that organizations are beginning to boast about as the hyper-connectedness of digital transformation continues to revolutionize enterprises, including Microsoft. With these rapid cycles of innovation and optimization comes the inevitable question, how do we continue to keep our enterprise secure in the midst of it all?

Microsoft Chief Information Security Officer, Bret Arsenault, has the answer.

In the Securing our Enterprise series over the next few weeks, Arsenault will share a very curious but practical analogy on how he and his team are balancing information protection, device health, identity management, and data telemetry with risk management during these exciting times.

This six-part series will dive deeply into every aspect of enterprise security here at Microsoft and begins with how Arsenault and his team help keep both customer and Microsoft data protected. “We can’t always control where the data goes,” pointed out Arsenault, “so protection must travel with the data.”

What exactly does that mean? Let’s take a look.
