Microsoft Purview: The future of compliance and data governance

The worldwide shift to a hybrid workplace has been a challenge to many organisations. This new reality in how we do our daily work has helped many of us become more collaborative; routinely editing and sharing documents in real-time from wherever we happen to be working. Even instant messaging in teams went from being a tool of convenience to a cornerstone of productivity and communication. 

One of the challenges with this way of working constant connectivity brings evolving, inherent risks. Over the past two years, organizations have seen a massive increase in their digital footprint, leading to data fragmentation and growth across a multitude of applications, devices, and locations. The new life of virtual offices has also impacted the risk of new collaboration mediums opening doors to harassment, sensitive data leaks, and other workplace policy infractions. It’s a big digital estate for any organization to try to manage. 


New demand for Integrated Risk Management

Just as today’s overwhelming data-flow and hyper-connected workplace brings new vulnerabilities, the responsibility for protecting it is also in for a big change. The demand and changes in new and old roles within an organization such as the Chief Data Officer (CDO), Chief Risk Officer (CRO)/Chief Compliance Officer (CCO), Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), and Chief Information Officer (CIO) has to choose whether they will duplicate, compete, or collaborate. Conditions that are driving the need for integrated risk management include:

  • Governance and compliance: Overlap between information governance, records management, and data collection is driving the need for a comprehensive solution for managing data risk.
  • The pandemic: Ongoing decentralized work has reinforced the need for strategic, operational, and business continuity management. All of this requires cross-functional data sharing and coordination. 
  • Nation-state attacks: Increasing sophistication and frequency of nation-state attacks is driving collaboration between compliance, data, and security functions. 

  • Data sharing: Requirements for continuous access to operational data across functions (read the DOJ’s requirements for compliance programs).  
  • Growing CDO responsibilities: The CDO’s role may go beyond data management and protection to include business intelligence, AI, and machine learning. Because this role can overlap with a Chief Analytics Officer (CAO) and CISO, a unified solution for risk management is vital to eliminating redundancies.
  • Evolving regulations: New requirements, like those from the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), Department of Justice (DOJ), and the European Union Whistleblower Directive require collaboration among all risk-management leaders.
