M365 Records Management Guide for Altaro

Another recent post for Altaro went live on Christmas day.

This one covers Records Management in Microsoft 365, understanding the data you have (in the cloud and on-premises), the amount of sensitive data you have, how to protect it with Information Protection and Data Loss Prevention and Retention policies.

Finally you can see where Records Management comes into the picture and how to use it to manage particular types of documents in your organization (signed contracts, completed product specifications and the like).

Enjoy. And thanks for reading.
