Workshop: WRK504 – A Data Governance Hackathon

When: Tuesday, September 27 from 9:00AM to 12:30PM

Workshop facilitators: Drew Madelung and myself

Synopsis: We know that data governance situations are unique for your company and can be complex. Data governance covers a collection of solutions like retention, data loss prevention, classification, records management, eDiscovery and overall reporting for your data. Do you have a data governance scenario you need a plan or answer for?

In this workshop, we will build out solutions live using the scenarios you bring to us. We’ll start the workshop by discussing the data governance features in Office 365. Once we set the framework, we’ll ask you to contribute your scenarios or situations and we’ll work together to build a solution or plan live, during the workshop.

This will provide attendees a real-world answer to their data governance question(s). A Data Governance hackathon!

Session: CM105 – SharePoint Syntex: An AI Model Walk-thru

When: Wednesday, September 28 at 3:30PM

Synopsis: SharePoint Syntex is the first project released out of Project Cortex and is a significant step forward in providing the ability to intelligently identify content across your Microsoft 365 environment.

Unstructured content is being produced at an exponential rate in our modern workplaces today and we need a way to manage it at scale by providing structure (content types and metadata) and governance (security and compliance controls) to it.

To demonstrate this new capability, Joanne Klein will walkthrough a practical example of using a SharePoint Syntex AI document understanding model to intelligently identify Statements of Work across SharePoint libraries. The walkthrough will cover setup, training, and deployment.

SharePoint Syntex. It’s almost magic.

Session: ADM204 – Information Governance & Records Management in Microsoft 365: What to know before you start!

When: Thursday, September 29 at 3:50PM

Synopsis: Based on my experience in the field with customers, I’ve come up with the key things you should have an authoritative understanding of before getting too far down the implementation path. Session will show real-world examples across the Microsoft Information Governance and Records Management tech with demos to support. Come to this session to find out what you need to know!

This session targets not only Records Managers and Information Governance specialists, but also the IT Administrators who may be tasked with implementing some of these compliance features.

Session: ADM304 – Communication Compliance in Microsoft 365 | Walk-thru and Guidance

When: Friday, September 30 at 1:50PM

Synopsis: Communication Compliance is part of the Insider Risk solution set in Microsoft 365. Its purpose is to monitor communication methods used both within and outside of the Microsoft 365 cloud to help identify insider non-compliant and risky communication. In the modern workplace today, communication methods are vast and varied and all can be a potential channel for non-compliance. The Communication Compliance tool has been purpose-built to help identify potential areas of non-compliance across these communication methods and remediation actions that can be taken depending on the severity of the activity.

To demonstrate this capability, Joanne Klein will walk through some examples of using both built-in and customized templates to monitor end-user communication methods found in a typical modern workplace. Like most tools in the Compliance space, it’s always about more than technology alone, so Joanne will also cover some things you may want to have in place in your organization before implementing this tool.

I hope to see you in Chicago in September!! If you’re there, don’t be shy… say hi!! 🙂
