How Secure is My Data in Microsoft Office 365?
Level: 200
Track: IT Pro, Business
When considering a cloud based service like Office 365, questions about security and trust often gets asked – questions like: Can I trust Office 365 with my company’s data? How secure is my data in Office 365? Organizations are often cautious when it comes to trusting cloud services with storing and providing access to corporate data. This becomes even more of a concern when we think about sensitive data, personally identifiable data or data that requires regulatory compliance controls. Being cautious and asking a cloud service provider questions about security and trust is a positive step. Answering those questions requires learning about the security strategy the provider has employed, and the specific controls they have put in place to protect your data. This session will answer those questions and provide an overview of the robust set of security capabilities available in Office 365.

Level: 100

In order to meet specific business needs, SharePoint Online requires various changes to be made to it, such as branding and content structure.

When Your Tower of Babel Reaches the Cloud: Languages and Office 365
Level: 100
Track: IT Pro, Developer
Office 365 handles many languages individually, but if there is more than one language at once things get tricky. Making SharePoint sites truly multilingual using the Multilingual User Interface is already difficult enough, but on Office 365 the challenges are multiplied. Some solutions that work with SharePoint on-premise are not possible. When configuring sites or localising apps, you may be surprised how many different factors Office 365 uses to determine the language of different components. Many of the language configuration and localisation methods described on Microsoft sites do not tell the entire story; they apply to some scenarios and not to others. You will find out what to watch out for, what works and what doesn’t, and how to fix it. You will learn some of the language-related challenges and opportunities that apply to both Office 365 and SharePoint 2013 or 2016, and some of the additional challenges unique to Office 365. The session will also discuss machine translation, specifically giving insight into what types of content translate well and what types don’t. Some points will be illustrated with short demos, but since most changes to language configurations take several minutes to take effect, there is some suspense involved in these demos.
