And because personal data protection in your computer system, as well as, compliance assumptions are fundamental requirements of the GDPR, Azure is equipped with several tools that enable it to meet these obligations:
- Azure Security Center provides visibility and control over the security of Azure resources.
- Data Encryption of Azure Storage encrypts data when it is written. With Azure Disk Encryption you can encrypt operating systems and data disks used by virtual machines.
- Azure Key Vault allows you to protect the encryption keys, certificates, and passwords that protect your data. Through hardware security modules (HSMs), you can be assured that even Microsoft does not access them.
- Log Analytics helps you identify and repair security breaches, to prevent system breaches by analyzing data generated in the cloud or other local environments and provides real-time information, allowing you to scan millions of records regardless of your physical location.
