Summary:

In this installment of our DFARS Security and Compliance Update Series Microsoft's Todor Batchvarov, went over the latest features to be released in Office 365 GCC High and Azure Government, and how they will impact your organization/environment.  The team discussed some of the recent breaches, legislation, and reports from throughout the 3rd Quarter. Scott wrapped up the webinar with trends amongst the nearly 100 contractors he's consulted or supported, and what are the most misunderstood or overlooked aspects of migrating to Office 365 GCC High.

NDIA recently conducted a study with the help of Michigan State University and Lockhead Martin entitled "Implementing Cybersecurity in DoD Supply Chains". The findings were not flattering, but the recommendations were spot on. This white paper was integral during our discussion.
