At last week’s Inspire conference in Washington DC, Satya Nadella announced Microsoft 365.
But what is it, and is it more than just a repackaging of existing apps? Our infographic reveals all…
Sharing information outside your organisation is an everyday part of doing business. We look at how Office 365 makes external sharing as safe and secure as possible.
It might seem counterintuitive, but instant sharing has made it easier than ever to protect your most sensitive business data.
In the bad old days of sharing documents via USB sticks, burned CD-Rs, and casually-forwarded attachments, data security was virtually non-existent. Beyond sticking a password on your document, you had very few measures to protect it; once data was free of your organisation, it was out of your control. And in the case of staff sharing sensitive material unintentionally – or, worse, maliciously – you were on your own.
Data Loss Prevention
The cloud has changed that for the better. Data Loss Prevention (DLP) systems – such as the one built into enterprise versions of Office 365 – automatically identify and protect sensitive data, such as credit card details, National Insurance numbers and passport information. Try to share something sensitive, and, depending on policy, you’ll receive a gentle reminder, be stopped in your tracks, or even have the attempt silently logged and flagged up to an administrator.
Learn how Registers of Scotland and the Scottish Housing Regulator delivered digital transformation by empowering their businesses and allowing ingenuity to flourish.
Picking up a theme from an earlier blog article, What is Digital Transformation?, this recent observation from Tom Meade, Digital Director at Registers of Scotland, really resonated with us:
“We don’t look at it as digital transformation; the IT doing something to the business. We view it as business transformation; the business deciding what it wants to do with its IT capability.”

Almost 3 years ago, Registers of Scotland (RoS) approached CompanyNet with a business problem. A significant legislative change to the Land Registration Act had just been announced. This mandated that Registers of Scotland must allow a defined set of Land Reports to be transacted online with its community of eServices business to business customers, by a fixed statutory deadline in December 2014. The deadline became known within RoS as the “Designated Day.”
This legislative change had forced RoS to seek out a digital solution to deliver this statutory requirement. And so the Reports Portal service was born.
