[Demo] Making Seamless Security Real with Microsoft 365

Exploring Security and Productivity in Microsoft 365: Teams, Skype and Power BI
It has been widely established that the most vulnerable point of security failure is end users. Countless studies have identified that user behavior accounts for over 90% of all breaches. But why is this the case? Lack of knowledge and end-user training is an obvious consideration in any security program, but even organizations with well-defined and communicated security protocols fall victim to user-initiated breaches. Are the controls failing? Are users finding ways around them? Are they ignoring them? Are end-users willfully putting your data at risk? Of course not.
The reality is that the average user does not think of protecting themselves from attacks every day…they just need to get their work done. When there’s something standing in the way of that the natural inclination is to get past that hurdle as quickly as possible to accomplish their task - even security protocols. This realization is at the center of how security is handled inside Microsoft 365.
VIDEO DEMO – A DAY-IN-THE-LIFE OF BEING PRODUCTIVE AND SECURE
The best way to illustrate how Microsoft 365 brings security and productivity together is to look at a day in the life of an average user. In this video demo, BDO Digital's Danelle Van Der Koon, Microsoft 365 subject matter expert, walks through several scenarios a typical user may perform in Office 365. See how message encryption, Azure Information protection, and secure sharing through Teams and Power BI can accelerate productivity while keeping your most sensitive data secure.

This video explores:
- Intelligent Communication: See how Teams is creating a new hub for teamwork, collaboration, and communication as we work through a collaboration scenario in Teams using chat that can quickly escalate to full video conference.
- Security: Protection works best when it doesn’t get in the way of the work you’re trying to accomplish, and that is the approach Microsoft has taken with Microsoft 365. See what an encrypted message looks like from an end-user perspective and use Azure Information Protection to set sensitivity at the document level based on your security policies.
- Data Analytics: See how Power BI intersects with collaboration tools like Teams to help your users make better decisions based on data quickly. See how message encryption, Azure Information protection, and secure sharing through Teams and Power BI can accelerate productivity while keeping your most sensitive data secure.
While Microsoft 365 was formally released to the market in July 2017, the underlying security framework has been long established throughout the development of Microsoft’s productivity suite. Microsoft 365 brings together Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility + Security in a fully integrated package to simplify the delivery of a complete, intelligent, and secure solution to empower your employees. Microsoft chose to mark this integration with a new integrated brand as it represents a fundamental shift in how they will design, build, and go to market to address customers’ needs for a modern workplace.
