Certifications
Microsoft uses certifications and third-party verifications of various standards and
regulatory requirements to differentiate Office 365 as an enterprise cloud service. This is one area
where Microsoft leads other large, public cloud providers. In most cases, it is already a fact
that the level of investment, geographic footprint, and specialization in this field far exceed
the IT standards required by any current or potential Office 365 customer. Most
organizations are not in the business of running data centers, which really exist only to support the
real core business of the organization.
The key Office 365 certifications to take note of are the following:
ISO 27001
SOC 2 Type 1
EU Safe Harbor
Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16, which is the successor
to SAS 70 and ISAE 3402
Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA)
