MS Inspire 2018 – Join us for ‘GDPR and Office 365: Surviving the Aftermath’

12 Jul 2018 by Chris Cahill

The hottest show in Vegas rolls into town next week, with Microsoft Partners from all over the world converging on Sin City for MS Inspire; a five-day event where the Microsoft community will come together to learn, share ideas, and shape business plans for the next 12 months.

Aside from Grammy award-winner Bruno Mars performing on Wednesday night, one of the star attractions promises to be our very own Paul Robichaux.

Quadrotech’s CTO (who also happens to be a Microsoft MVP) will be hosting a seminar on the spine-chilling topic of ‘GDPR and Office 365: Surviving the Aftermath’.

MS Inspire: Come along to our speaking session!

Now that GDPR has come into force, the focus for many organizations has changed from answering the question, “How do I comply with GDPR?” to “How do I stay compliant with GDPR?”.

If you’re a Partner with Office 365 customers, particularly if you have management responsibility, this talk will be invaluable in helping to ensure all stakeholders steer clear of any irregularities, as Paul explains in this short video:

Breach investigation and notification is one of the most challenging requirements of GDPR, but Paul will shed light on tools that can speed up breach identification, and ways you can shorten the timeline required to scope the potential impact of a breach. He’ll also share expert advice on configuration changes that should be made to Office 365 tenants, helping to prepare customers for breach response.

After months and months of planning, many legal teams had a mad rush to ensure organizations fell into line when the new regulations came into effect a couple of months ago. However, no matter how safe you think you are now, there will always be ongoing challenges, like mitigating the risk of PST files in light of GDPR.

Paul is a longstanding, world-renowned member of the Microsoft community, and we’re sure you’ll find his seminar engaging and enlightening. Please join us at the Partner Theatre, Monday 16th July, 12.30pm.
