"Who has access to my data?"
The most common question we receive when discussing any cloud service with a customer for the first time is, “Is my data secure?” The answer with Microsoft’s Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), is yes.
Microsoft partners with customers to help them address industry specific regulatory requirements to provide a secure, reliable network with penetration testing done regularly, and hopefully provide them with the last server(s) they will ever have to purchase.
Here are a few compliances you can expect with a Microsoft Azure infrastructure:
ISO/IEC 27001:2005 Audit and Certification
SOC 1 and SOC 2 SSAE 16/ISAE 3402oud Security Alliance Cloud Controls Matrix
Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS) Level 1
HIPAA Business Associate Agreement (BAA)
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
Now, one question you may have is, “What is Microsoft doing with my data?” Well, the answer is nothing. Microsoft does not data-mine. No customer data is shared or used for any type of advertisements nor sold to any other companies or agencies. Microsoft believes your data is your data.
