There is so much depth to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Security that it is amazing that they can add more and yet, more has been added. A great post is available on all the new options which you can reach using the link above.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online conforms to ISO/IEC 27018, the only international set of privacy controls in the cloud
Microsoft is the first major cloud provider to be independently verified as having adopted ISO/IEC 27018, the world's first international cloud privacy standard. The adoption of ISO/IEC 27018 by Dynamics CRM Online is part of a broader commitment from Microsoft to protecting the privacy of our customers, as described in a Microsoft on the Issues post from Brad Smith, General Counsel and Executive Vice President. In addition to Microsoft Azure, Office 365 and Microsoft Intune have adopted ISO/IEC 27018."
"In the world of Microsoft Dynamics CRM, the shift to the cloud is well underway. Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online is growing by leaps and bounds, including sales to massive customers with huge user counts. If you’re a partner in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM channel, it’s important that you understand what this means for the solutions you build for customers who want Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online."
A number of people have asked, what is the difference between Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online and Microsoft Dynamics CRM On-Premise other than where the actual software lives.
This has generated a few articles and resources that answer this question.

Are you ready to learn about Dynamics CRM? Get some popcorn and take a look at this nice compiled list of YouTube Microsoft Dynamics CRM Tutorial Videos.
They started with Microsoft Social Listening (MSL), empowering one user at a time to embrace and filter through all the social noise using technology! Empowering users to leverage more data to get their individual goals met and offering more depth of functionality both with and without Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
NOW there is MORE! Now MSL has morphed into Microsoft Social Engagement where you can do more than just listen. MSL Matured into more features, more interaction and more user power.
So if you have been waiting for the bleeding edge to stop bleeding and you are ready to empower your users with more than just an e-mail system and more than a robust customer relationship system then start dipping your toes into the water with the Microsoft Social Engagement tool (MSE).
One of the most fabulous features of Microsoft Dynamics CRM is the number of choices that any given business can have when leveraging the power of the toolset. This helps the solution and the product, the processes and the people to grow and change as businesses grow and change.
This is also one of the biggest dilemmas for the "New to Dynamics CRM" crowd. Choice makes a number of seasoned veterans to business applications scratch their heads and ask "Why". They assume that what they see is what they get.
They often mention things like "Why does the product do this out of the box" or "I need to talk to the development team about how (pick your vendor Siebel, SAP, Oracle, etc. etc. etc.) models this differently". They can even lock themselves into a box by eliminating a huge number of choices and blocking these from the business because of their own filters.
What is often misunderstood is that the consulting partner, resource, resources, mix and match team or IT department that a business works with, needs to understand both your business, the CRM Industry and methodologies for success and the depth of the technology.
This is a big ask, but so many customers have found success! It is not an impossible ask.
This post is to encourage CxOs to consider and discuss and participate in technology as part of their long term growth and to insure that the adaptability of that technology is part of the discussion. Take small bites (small phases) and let teams grow, change and mature on a continued and seamless path to success. Lastly don't make a decision and walk away. The heartbeat of a business is living and changing and many times always being updated. Setup reviews both of the solution and of the processes and make continued decisions.
So you have been wondering how an application as powerful as MDM (Microsoft Dynamics Marketing) can work so seamlessly with Microsoft Dynamics CRM. It is for instance built and released for the large enterprise marketing department who likes to control their own data and applications.

And thanks to PowerObjects for blogging about this item worth of consideration.
One of the senior developers who I use to work with had a great quote that I often think about when stepping into some of the more complex enterprise projects or when trying to explain Microsoft Dynamics CRM or the projects built from the platform and branded using xRM (relationship Management at it's best).
"Simplicity is often on the other side of Complexity" ~Chris Condron but perhaps Oliver Wendell Holmes deserves the credit. Either way I was thrilled to find out that the internal teams at Microsoft have announced this realignment of numbering for Dynamics CRM!
"I would not give a fig for the simplicity this side of complexity, but I would give my life for the simplicity on the other side of complexity. " Oliver Wendell Holmes
It shows the deep maturity of the product. It easily communicates the growth and the upward trend of the development efforts and it is straight forward for people to understand.
So KUDOs to the team! Keep up the incredible as you pull together all the new power to the Microsoft Dynamics CRM customers and the CRM Community!
Microsoft Dynamics CRM is providing ONE PLATFORM for so many different applications out there that I can't even keep up. It is built to be one and it is built to integrate so that it can display, interact, pull in and/or integrate all of your data and all of your applications.
Now that Dynamics CRM is one of your options, what are options for integrating all of your other applications? Don't get stuck with even more distributed data, leverage MCS or leverage one of the great Microsoft CRM partner resources.
A bunch of field resources put together their knowledge and released this WIKI article on Microsoft Dynamics CRM Integration and I must admit it is one of the most requested tips that I get. If you have more to add, dive in or if you just need answers take a look.
The new CRM page is live on YouTube and Facebook.
You can access the YouTube page here: https://www.youtube.com/user/msdyncomm/DynamicsCRM

Some of the partners have some great information and although there is a TON of information available from Microsoft, it is also worth tapping into some of the field buzz.
Dynamics CRM is such an integrated platform, it leverages a ton of really cool Microsoft Technologies and taps into the Microsoft technology stack. This means that you get all the power of Excel, Outlook, Word, SQL Server, Windows Server, Exchange and more!
Sometimes however an issue is not a CRM issue and is resolved with a service pack to one of the other applications. Take for instance Excel.
Check out this little Tidbit from the Microsoft Excel Support Team Blog.
The people who work on Microsoft Dynamics CRM don't always know all the details of loving and caring for Microsoft Dynamics CRM and although it doesn't need much, it does like some care.
This is why the community is so incredible and no amount of thanks can truly show the appreciation for the hundreds of hours community members spend blogging and sharing great information.
So today I am sharing an older post for those using all versions of Microsoft Dynamics CRM, but particularly for those who might want to do even more to keep their system singing and moving along.
A user’s security role needs to match the privileges at the ‘User’ level with the Access Team Template Privileges (R,W,A,A2,D,Assign and Share) associated with the Entity. If an Access Team has Delete privileges and a user's security roles did not, the user will be blocked from being added to the team. CRM Security is AWESOME and this shows that security can’t be bypassed just by adding someone to a team. If that user cannot delete a record, then adding them to an Access Team with that privilege won’t work!
Big thanks to the awesome: Thymio Barbatsis, for continuing to share incredible tidbits with the community
