We’re pleased to announce the release of a new guide to assist public offices and local authorities in adopting Microsoft 365 services.

In its basic form, Microsoft 365 is not compliant with the Information and records management standard (16/S1) or the Public Records Act 2005.

The guide lays out how public offices and local authorities can move towards compliance by applying controls, recognising risks and taking a number of the principles outlined in the Information and records management standard (16/S1) into consideration.

The Microsoft 365 guide is available here.

Please note that we are using new colours for our guidance templates in line with our refreshed website.

Contact rkadvice@dia.govt.nz if you have any questions.
