Two Ways to Get Started with M365 Information Protection & Governance: Compliance Assessment or PoC

Updated: Sep 6

Many organizations know they need to better protect and govern information in Microsoft Office 365 (M365), but struggle finding the time and resources to address this. If you think you have a problem today, then delaying taking action will increase the effort to address the issue. Data is exploding at an exponential rate, which means more data chaos to address in the future if you don´t establish a framework to address it. Regulators have also started to crack down on organizations that don´t take action to ensure compliance. If you know you had a problem and didn´t take action, then the fine will be bigger if discovered at a later stage. At Infotechtion, we offer you two ways to get started without spending a lot of time and energy:


Option 1: Compliance Assessment


Our Compliance Assessment provides you with insights to help you better discover, protect and govern your corporate data. This virtual engagement is spread out over several weeks to allow Compliance Check time to run on top of your M365 tenant and surface data risks within your organization. Compliance Check leverages automated M365 tools and services to discover data stored in the Microsoft cloud and identify potential problem areas.​ ​

The automated discovery process will analyze your existing data for:​

  • Sensitive information and intellectual property​

  • Unused or “stale” data​

  • Unusual activities​

The Compliance Assessment gives you the insights you need to better discover, protect and govern your corporate data. Deliverables include:

  • Compliance Check report that includes findings and insights from the automated discovery process

  • List of actionable recommendations and suggestions for improved mitigation and governance

  • Detailed assessment of your IT and compliance priorities and initiatives

  • Clear look into Microsoft’s approach to compliance and how it relates to your organization

  • Hands-on opportunity to experience what integrated compliance looks like, including the latest tools and methods

  • Set of long-term recommendations on your compliance strategy, with key initiatives and tactical next steps

Option 2: Proof-of-Concept


If you have specific requirements for M365 information protection and governance, or just want to find a way to better manage information, we can then do a proof-of-concept for you. This can be done in your tenant or in our test environment. A proof-of-concept can very simple (like records management for Teams and SharePoint Online) or complex (investigating if M365 SharePoint Online can replace your legacy content management system).

A proof-of-concept often entail the following:

  • Kick-off call to determine scope and stakeholders

  • Document use case and requirements based on scope

  • Configure M365 to meet your use case and requirements

  • Demo for stakeholders

  • Document findings and recommend next steps


Please feel free to contact us if you want to discuss this in more detail. We have offices and staff in the US, UK, and Europe, and we can very quickly deliver the two options for you based on our experience from several global clients.
