Session 2, January 8: HLS Enterprise Data Governance and Management: 

  • Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) solutions are evolving. Get an overview of how you can protect your sensitive data through its lifecycle with MIP. Data is created and travels to more locations than ever before, which makes protecting your most important and sensitive data more challenging. We've made it easier to create and manage new information protection policies, easier for end-users to work with sensitivity labels in Office applications, and easier for the ecosystem to build their own information protection experiences into their own applications and services.
