Delighted to see that Microsoft is pushing so hard on this. At Dillistone we use the Microsoft Cloud (Azure) as our primary delivery service and so it's good to know that our clients are in safe hands.
Also interesting to read the comments from Microsoft SVP Julia White regarding how important this is to business outside of Europe. This reflects our experience - we ran a GDPR webinar this week at 9am NYC time / 2pm London and were inundated with requests from clients in other time zones. As a result, we are now running three more sessions - one for Europe, one for Americas and one for Asia friendly time zones.
Registration links at the top of this page if you'd like to join the upcoming sessions.
White said no matter where she travels -- Europe, Asia, Australia and the U.S. -- GDPR and its effect on security and privacy are top of mind with businesses. But while many see cloud services as a complicating factor for GDPR compliance, White argued the opposite, saying, "The cloud plays such a pivotal role in helping all of us and our customers get to GDPR compliance."
