Microsoft Teams is a powerful, cloud-based all-in-one collaboration and communication tool, part of Microsoft Office 365.
Participants in a Team can be either EUI members only or a mix of EUI members and external users, with the idea that all share the same (access) rights.
Amongst a wide range of collaboration tools (chat, meetings, desktop sharing, third-party apps, etc.), Teams offers a file storage (and sharing) platform which is based on SharePoint (see above) for easy integration with existing SharePoint sites.
Since a team has its own data repository, GDPR applies. Accordingly, a governance has been implemented, where the relevant Data Controller needs to declare compliance with the EUI Data Protection policy.
