Tech Exceptions new Episode - Data Management and External Organization Collaboration

Remote work increases the chances of data breaches for organizations.

A data breach is the intentional or unintentional release of secure or private/confidential information to an untrusted environment. Other terms for this phenomenon include unintentional information disclosure, data leak, information leakage, and data spill.

Microsoft is highly investing in that space to allow every customer to get maximum protection for their data.
For example, the Microsoft GDPR Breach Notification that helps you set notification and better track and audit your data to avoid breaking compliance.

Microsoft also provides dedicated services for tracking and adhering to multiple compliances. These services help your organization comply with national, regional, and industry-specific requirements governing the collection and use of data. For various industries and regions.

Microsoft 365 can be used together with Azure Purview.
Using them together will give you better control of your data, will help you understand who has control of your data, the various iterations it went through, including data lineage tracking.

Data lineage includes the data origin, what happens to it, and where it moves over time. Data lineage gives visibility while greatly simplifying the ability to trace errors back to the root cause in a data analytics process.

Data Lineage View Graph example:

You can see how the information is represented in a graph, showing you exactly what happened, including data extraction, transformation, analytics, visualization, etc.

Data Breaches when collaborating with People outside of your Organization

Managing and avoiding data breaches get more complicated when you want to share your business-sensitive data with a stakeholder outside your organization. You share this data as part of a collaboration and partnership, but you can't control it anymore.

The external sharing capabilities in Microsoft 365 provide an opportunity for people in your organization to collaborate with partners, vendors, customers, and others who don't have an account in your directory. You can share entire teams or sites with people outside your organization or just individual files.
