Cloud Fundamentals Video Series: All Data Is Not Created Equal

Lori Woehler, senior director in the Microsoft World Wide Public Sector team, joins me to discuss how Microsoft World Wide Public Sector works with government, health care, education, public safety, and national security customers globally.

Lori explains her role in security programs as she focuses on information sharing, collaboration and security solutions that help public sector customers address security needs. Lori reports that public sector customers are responsible for providing services back to their citizens, so data classification and access requirements are important considerations for them when it comes to migrating data and applications to the cloud.  In my discussion with her, she stated that “the ability to understand data and the classification of data and access requirements for that data is a foundation of making decisions for any workloads or any applications or datasets to move to the cloud.”
