The new Compliance Center contains the key compliance-related features for an Office 365 administrator to manage compliance across Office 365, Exchange Online and SharePoint Online.
Currently many of the compliance features are still accessible through service-specific management interfaces, such as the Exchange Admin Center. However, this will change in the future as more service independent compliance features are added to the Compliance Center.
Consolidating compliance functionality across services into this single area will make compliance features easier to access and enhance your end-to-end task-based experience.
To access the Compliance Center you can either go directly to its URL at https://compliance.protection.outlook.com/Ucc or, if you are an Office 365 administrator:
- Sign in to Office 365;
- Select the app launcher icon in the upper-left and choose Admin:
- In the lower-left navigation, expand Admin and choose Compliance:
You are then taken into the new Compliance Center:
As mentioned, this is currently being rolled out so it is possible that you will not see all the features in here just yet. For example, there will be an Auditing section as well which is not yet present in my tenant.
