There's more to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote than what immediately meets the eye.

ADM303 - Communication Compliance in Microsoft 365 | Walk-thru and Guidance

Communication Compliance is part of the Insider Risk solution set in Microsoft 365. Its purpose is to monitor communication methods used both within and outside of the Microsoft 365 cloud to help identify insider non-compliant and risky communication. In the modern workplace today, communication methods are vast and varied and all can be a potential channel for non-compliance. The Communication Compliance tool has been purpose-built to help identify potential areas of non-compliance across these communication methods and remediation actions that can be taken depending on the severity of the activity. To demonstrate this capability, Joanne Klein will walk through some examples of using both built-in and customized templates to monitor end-user communication methods found in a typical modern workplace. Like most tools in the Compliance space, it's always about more than technology alone, so Joanne will also cover some things you may want to have in place in your organization before implementing this tool.

ADM304 - More SharePoint More Fun… So… Many… Sites!

Yup, you can have 2 MILLION SharePoint sites in M365. How did this happen? First we got a new Site every time we created a team…. Then a new site every time we created a Private Channel…. Now a new site for every Shared Channel… It makes sense, but how do we even start thinking about managing all these sites? And do we even need to? This session will drill into both the end user experience as well and the admin management experience and explore SharePoint at scale in M365 for management, security, and compliance.
