These days, corporate data is stored, processed, and shared more than ever before. Organizations are migrating and storing more data in the cloud because they are looking for more efficient ways of doing business. This data is analyzed and used for prediction to innovate faster. To ensure that sensitive data isn't exposed to people that don't need access to it, putting security and controls in place is key.
To protect sensitive data, such as personally identifiable data, company financials, and intellectual property, Azure offers a set of features for data security and encryption. To protect your data, you need to know which state your data resides in and what controls are available for that state.
