How to assess security, compliance and privacy capabilities in Office 365

Over the years, Office 365 has made significant investments in the areas of security, compliance and privacy—now Office 365 customers can easily assess Office 365’s capabilities in these areas by leveraging Office 365 controls to map with the Cloud Security Alliance Cloud Control Matrix. We hope this helps Office 365 customers efficiently perform their due diligence when evaluating Office 365, onboarding Office 365 or renewing their subscriptions.
