Increasingly, organizations are looking to the cloud to increase productivity, adopt compelling new features, and more. Simultaneously, these organizations are concerned about how to protect their users and data from being compromised in a cloud-first, mobile-first world.

We’ve heard you, and we’re excited to announce that we are now certified to facilitate the Security Customer Immersion Experience (CIE), an exclusive hands-on educational event. By providing a simulation of common workplace scenarios, the Security CIE helps technology leaders make decisions with confidence. Undertake a free-form exploration of the possibilities as you work with Microsoft 365 cloud technologies as various personas, from CEO to Marketing to HR, but with a specific focus on security capabilities and enhancements. Kraft Kennedy experts will help you arrive at the right balance of security and the latest productivity-enhancing technology by guiding a discussion tailored to your organization’s specific goals and concerns.

To achieve this rare certification, our experts completed a rigorous three-week bootcamp, along with a number of community activities, knowledge assessments, and a final project.  Feedback from attendees of our past CIEs let us know that they found invaluable decision-making assistance in them, and so we look forward to facilitating this unique security-centered immersion.

The Security CIE will help you understand how to implement tight security while embracing the latest and greatest Microsoft 365 security features, including Windows Defender, Secure Score, Windows Hello for Business, Office 365 MFA, Conditional Access, Data Loss Prevention, Intune, Azure Information Protection, Compliance and GDPR, and more. All of these will be experienced while leveraging the latest in Microsoft productivity solutions, including Windows 10, Office 2016/365 Click-to-Run, Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Skype for Business Online, OneDrive for Business, and more.

Kraft Kennedy believes that the cloud offers unprecedented new opportunities for productivity, yet security must be the basis of any productive work space. Stay tuned for invitations to our first Security CIEs.
