TWC: Data Privacy and Protection in the Cloud
With the rapid adoption of public cloud services, much attention has been paid to cloud security practices. In this session, learn about the less frequently discussed practices that cloud services providers are expected to implement in order to maintain the privacy of their tenants' data. Transparency around cloud privacy practices has become increasingly critical to earning the trust that is necessary for cloud services to satisfy customer needs. Learn how Microsoft delivers cloud services that are built to protect customer data and the data generated through the use of our services including Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Azure, and others. We discuss Microsoft's leading cloud operational privacy practices and controls, our Privacy by Design development approach that minimizes risks, differentiating regulatory commitments (e.g., EU Model Clauses and HIPAA BAA) and tools for communicating privacy considerations to customers. The session includes a demonstration from the Azure team highlighting features in the Microsoft Azure service that empower customers to protect the privacy of their data. A second demonstration from an Office 365 customer is included to articulate a real-world implementation case that will help audience members better understand the privacy features that should be carefully considered when choosing a public cloud solution.
