With the ever-increasing complexity and proliferation of data, protecting our nation’s most valuable information is no easy endeavor. In response to this growing challenge, this month’s Microsoft Azure Government DC Meetup will discuss strategies for governance that have helped them prepare for today’s cloud era.
We hope you will RSVP and join us for this Meetup featuring government and industry panel members who will discuss and answer your questions around:
- Empowering users while protecting sensitive information
- Ensuring compliance across platforms including: on-premises, hybrid, or cloud-hosted SharePoint/O365 deployments
- Enforcing governance by leveraging automation tools to ensure seamless provisioning of service requests across your organization’s varied lines of business.
There will also be a demo on governance and compliance around the O365 stack; and as always the Meetup will feature great networking and refreshments. There is no cost to attend this event. Please register to secure your seat today, and we also welome you to join our Microsoft Azure Government DC Meetup community!
