Get started with Microsoft's new AI-based privacy management solution for Microsoft 365, which applies intelligence to quickly assess your organization's privacy risks and help anyone working with personal data make the right decisions. Alym Rayani, General Manager for Microsoft 365 Compliance and Privacy, joins Jeremy Chapman to show how you can automate subject rights requests for Microsoft 365 data and ensure integration with your existing solutions using our API.

Privacy requirements universally impact organizations as more privacy regulations are introduced around the globe. And just like security is a top priority, privacy needs to be too. Now you can build a privacy resilient organization where everybody working with personal data is empowered to be part of the solution.

For admins-
We've tailored the experience to what privacy teams care about to proactively identify and protect against common privacy risks.

For privacy managers-
We've built automation for processing subject rights requests at scale, and at quality, whether you're using our built-in experience or tools from a partner.

For users-
Understand privacy risks in the moment, or even in the context of your work with data.

Stay ahead of external and internal threats — and balance performance, reliability, and security with Windows 11. Dave Weston, Windows security expert, joins Jeremy Chapman to share the rationale behind hardware requirements and how they provide significantly more protection against today's most sophisticated malware and attacks.

Cyber attacks are at an all time high. Many of the optional or high-end security controls from Windows 10 are now on by default and required on new machines with Windows 11. The Zero Trust security model is baked into Windows 11, from the silicon on the board itself, to the actual boot process, your login as a user, and the apps you use in your Windows session every day.

See the sites that hackers use, and find out if your organization is exposed.
Protect Windows from remote and in-person attacks with Virtualization-based Security.
UEFI, Secure Boot and Trusted Boot stop rootkits or bootkits. Secure encryption keys, user credentials, and sensitive data behind a hardware barrier.
Windows 11 requires TPM 2.0 on new installs by default.

08:01 - Virtualization-based Security
