Microsoft: Information Protection approach for a hybrid environment


With the acceleration of digital transformation, it also has broad implications. The way we work and the tools we use are changing at a very rapid pace: including employees bringing their own devices to the work environment and pervasive use of SaaS applications. Because of this, the way organizations manage and secure their data must also evolve. Companies no longer operate solely within their own perimeter. Data travels to more locations than ever before, across both on-premises and cloud environments and it could be At Rest, In Motion or In Use…. While this has helped increase user’s productivity and their ability to collaborate with others, it has also made protecting sensitive data more challenging. There are several reasons why a comprehensive information protection approach is so important. Data is being created and shared across boundaries, across a variety of devices, apps and cloud services. Compliance concerns add a layer of scrutiny to how data is being used and shared.

Information Protection lifecycle: Information protection lifecycle across devices, cloud apps or on-premises apps, primarily includes 4 phases: Detect, classify, protect and monitor.

Detect: Detecting sensitive data is the first step in having an effective information protection strategy. Data when in motion needs to be tied with a sensitivity and its location. Different levels of data sensitivity will need a different level of protection.
