Introduction to Information Protection – Slide Deck

Had a great session this week at the latest Microsoft 365 conference in Las Vegas (December 2022).  In this session, I was given the opportunity to demonstrate Microsoft Information Protection to a room of over 100 people.  I had a great time and am very thankful for all who attended.  As promised, I have uploaded the slide deck from my session.  Please grab it and let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you!
