Microsoft has today updated the Microsoft Trust Center, overhauling the whole experience. In a blog post, the company says it has completely changed the design of the website (www.microsoft.com/trustcenter) and added new content. The expansion includes EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) guidance.
In the announcement, Microsoft reaffirms how important the Trust Center is to its Trusted Cloud initiative. The website is a reference point for the company’s cloud trust resources. It has information on Microsoft’s compliance with regulators both regionally and around the world.
This information is in-depth and points to Microsoft’s security and privacy practices. Specifically, users can look at the Trust Center to see the company’s policies on cloud security. Visiting the websites lets customers keep tabs on Microsoft products as diverse as Azure, Office 365, and Dynamics 365. Other services included are Power BI, Visual Studio Team Services, and Windows Server 2016.
Visiting the Trust Center will let you see how Microsoft keeps you and your data private. Users can see how the company adheres to laws to ensure privacy.
