Situation

A council launched Microsoft Office 365 to enable employees to work from home with any connected work device. The organisation was satisfied with the numerous benefits but required to enhance the security structure of the new platform to avoid data leakage and protect information.

Solution

We created sensitivity labels that were configured in the compliance portal to enable further work flexibility for employees and ensure they are able to classify their documents securely.

Benefits

  • Productivity has increased for employees due to more work flexibility.
  • The new solution is highly secured with low vulnerability towards external threats.
  • Employee satisfaction is likely to improve over time with a secured work environment.
  • Data from employees and citizens is safe and protected by Microsoft technology
