Microsoft today took to the Firehose blog to announce a redesigned and “greatly expanded” Microsoft Trust Center site. The website, which is for learning about Microsoft security and compliance practices, now features EU General Data Protection Regulation guidance, audit reports, security assessments, and much more.
Overall, those visiting the expanded website should also expect to see resources and in-depth information about security, privacy, and compliance offerings, policies, features, and practices across Azure, Dynamics 365, Office 365, Power BI, Visual Studio Team Services, and Windows Server 2016. According to Microsoft, the Trust Center is a part of the Microsoft Trusted Cloud initiative and provides support and resources for information professionals and legal professionals. Please have a look at what is new below.
- Access to protected content, including SOC and ISO 27001 audit reports, certifications, and product security assessments, integrated into the Trust Center pages through the Service Trust Platform, which is available to customers with an active or trial subscription to one of Microsoft’s business cloud services.
- A GDPR homepage that will serve as the company’s main resource for customers on the road to GDPR compliance, including guides to how some of our existing products and services, like Azure, Dynamics 365, and Office 365 can help you with the solutions you need to tackle each step of GDPR compliance.
- Information and guidance specific to key organizational roles, including business managers, tenant admins or data security teams, risk assessment and privacy officers, and legal compliance teams.
- New content areas, including resources for accessibility compliance, cybercrime, and industry-focused pages on finance, health, and media.
