Virtual Workshop: Core

Core logo


Theme: Achieving zero trust security and protecting your data and information in a remote world

Hosted by: Core


The explosion in remote working and cloud adoption has fundamentally redefined the traditional security perimeter. As part of the shift in working practices, data is now being freely shared internally and externally.


Potentially, up to 80% of corporate data is considered as “dark” – it is not structured, classified, protected or governed. As CIOs and IT Leaders embrace zero trust security, many have strategies for perimeter, endpoint and app security, but data and information protections continues to be a concern.


Join Core as we explore the paradigm shift in security strategy and how to transition from a model based on the majority of employees working in a secure network, to one where the majority are working outside of it. Paul and Eamon will take a deep dive in to the trends Core are seeing across the industry and how to mitigate them, answering some of the common questions we are hearing regularly and showcasing a series of demonstrations, including:


  • Review of Security Features in Microsoft 365
  • Enabling key features – DEMO
  • Microsoft 365 security in action, showing how the service deals with cyber threats – DEMO
  • Protecting your data
  • Data Protection in action – DEMO
  • Defence in Depth – how to build a fortified security strategy with Microsoft
