Privacy Management uses data classification and user mapping intelligence to help an organization discover where and how much private data is stored in its Microsoft 365 environment, Microsoft indicated. It provides an organization with an aggregated view of its privacy posture and associated privacy risks and trends over time.

Furthermore, Privacy Management lets organizations automate privacy operations and response to subject rights requests, Microsoft said. Privacy Management correlates data signals Microsoft 365 to deliver privacy insights.

Also, Privacy Management helps organizations empower their employees to make “smart data handling decisions,” Microsoft noted. It delivers recommended actions, training and tips that organizations can share with their workers to help them securely manage their personal data.

Privacy Management is generally available as an add-on to a Microsoft 365 or Office 365 subscription.

Microsoft Offers Compliance Manager Service

In addition to Privacy Management for Microsoft 365, Microsoft provides its Compliance Manager to help organizations keep pace with global, industrial and regional data protection and privacy regulations.

Compliance Manager provides access to more than 200 data protection and privacy regulatory assessment templates, Microsoft said. It helps organizations track the most up-to-date data protection and privacy mandates and comply with them.

Along with using Privacy Management and Compliance Manager, there are several things that MSSPs can do to defend against Microsoft 365 security vulnerabilities, including:

Use multi-factor authentication. Leverage role-based access controls. Utilize email encryption.

MSSPs can stay up to date about Microsoft 365 security vulnerabilities as well. That way, MSSPs can monitor these vulnerabilities and take appropriate measures to protect against them before they lead to data breaches.
