Panel discussion: Cyber-security in SharePoint and Office 365


Microsoft’s Office 365 and Azure platforms are among the fastest growing cloud environments on the market, and yet even with record-setting growth, cyber-security remains the top concern of organizations considering moving all or part of their on-premises environments to the cloud.

Join us on April 11th for a panel discussion on the issues, challenges, and blockers associated with the adoption of Office 365 and Microsoft Cloud technology due to cyber-security concerns. Based on new research by CollabTalk LLC and conducted by the Marriott School of Management at Brigham Young University (BYU), this all-MVP panel will take a look at the findings and results that stuck out most.

The panel discussion will be moderated by Christian Buckley.
