Important Privacy Updates to Microsoft Azure
From the beginning, Microsoft Azure has recognized the important of protecting privacy data and adhering to standards set forth by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). As technology continues to advance and more sensitive data is put online and made vulnerable to attack, Azure is working to improve security. Microsoft Azure recently made new updates that will help companies more easily meet compliance and fully protect information, especially if you operate in one of the more sensitive industries, such as health and finance.
Here are just a few of the Azure privacy tools that you need to be aware of:
Azure Data Subject Request for the GDPR
All online Azure services allow you to execute data subject requests in the Azure portal. You will receive detailed instructions that will allow you to comply with GDPR standards so that all of your information is protected.
Policy Enforcement Tools
