Hi everyone. My name is Jake Gardner, and I'll be taking you through this course on Managing Regulatory Compliance in Microsoft 365. I'm based in Australia, and I'm an IT Manager for a local managed service provider, where we work as an outsourced IT provider to local businesses. I've been in the industry for nine years and I've worked with clients through a wide range of industries. From manufacturing to retail, to professional services.
Just to let you know, if you have any issues with the course or have any questions, please send us through an email on firstname.lastname@example.org. And one of our team members will be able to help.
During this course, we will give you an overview of the regulatory compliance features that are available in Microsoft 365, and why you need them. Then we'll take you through how to review and interpret the GDPR dashboards and reports. By the way, if you don't know what GDPR is, it stands for Global Data Privacy Regulation. We will go further into this later on.
Then we will run through Data Subject Rights requests, what they are, and how to run them. Then next is how to administer the Compliance Manager in Microsoft 365, where you will find out how to use the Compliance Manager, and understand the different features that are available to you, as a Microsoft 365 administrator.
Once we have completed the administering compliance manager section, we will move on to assessments. What are assessments in the Compliance Manager, and also how to use prebuilt assessments and how to create your own assessments. Then the last stage will be how to view reports and navigate the classic compliance manager portal. Before we get into all of this, there are some prerequisites.
To get the most out of this course, you should have some experience using Microsoft 365, and a basic understanding of how the Microsoft 365 system works. I recommend getting a Microsoft 365 subscription, to test this out on, so you can follow along. If you do not have a Microsoft 365 subscription, you can sign up for a 30 day trial of Microsoft 365 for free. Just type in Microsoft 365 trial, to your favorite search engine. If you're going to use a trial, I recommend signing up to the E5 plan, as this will have the most features available to you.
