  • SharePoint Growth & Evolution SharePoint Releases Metadata Content
  • Readiness o How important is governance in your organization/company today? o Do you know who is getting access to what information? o Do you store any financial or legal records in SharePoint? o Do you know who can access or has accessed it? o Do you have compliance regulations that you have to adhere to? o If there was a security breach, who would be held responsible? o Do you regularly run audits on usage, security, content, or permissions? o Do you have an IS department that is asking for reports? o How do you respond to compliance requirements for Audits? o What does the process look like today?
  • What is Governance?
  • A 2012 CIO survey by Gartner shows an increasing push in collaboration, analytics, and cloud computing. They predict that by 2016, 20% of CIOs in regulated industries will lose their jobs for failing to implement the discipline of information governance successfully.
  • Technical Governance Means…  Logins work  Data is secure  System performs well  Metadata applied  End users can quickly find their content  Storage is optimized  Content lifecycles in place, regularly reviewed  Legal and regulatory requirements being met
  • Corporate IT SharePoint Content Strategies Priorities Budgets Customers Facilities Hardware Software Assurance Test Support Ownership Permissions Roles Storage Architecture Retention Auditing Reporting Permissions Ownership Requirements Retention Search Decommission
  • Survey says…. 36% of SharePoint users are breaching security policies (CMSWire) Only 18% of enterprises use technical controls to prevent access to sensitive information. Most — 73 percent — rely on written policies or informal understandings with their workforce (CMSWire) 60% of organizations have yet to bring SharePoint into line with existing data compliance policies. (AIIM) Two-thirds of SharePoint-using companies in a recent survey have admitted to having ‘no active security policy’ in place (Emedia) A survey revealed that 79% of respondents stored sensitive or confidential information on their SharePoint platform (CMSWire)
  • What are the 5 most common SharePoint security concerns?
  • 1. Failure to define (and communicate) policies and procedures.  Start with non-technical elements  Develop a Security Policy  Implement a training plan for end users  Develop a strategy for ensuring users know what content is confidential 34% of IT administrators said that they'd "sneaked a peek" at documents they weren't authorized to view, including employee details and salary information (DarkReading)
  • 2. Failure to implement any kind of permissions best practices.  Apply permissions using Least Privileged principles  Don’t give users Direct Access  Embrace SharePoint Groups and/or Active Directory Groups  Ensure Appropriate Use of the Authenticated Users Group  Clean up Orphan Users  Use Broken Inheritance Responsibly  Revoke permissions quickly
  • 3. Failure to regularly audit access to content and sites.  Are we adhering to Compliance or Governance requirements?  Who has been accessing specific content?  How often are specific sites being accessed?  What features of SharePoint are being used?  Are we managing the volume of log data?
  • 4. Failure to monitor changes to security settings.  SharePoint security changes over time  Ensure users are continuing to adhere to security policies  Prevent users from causing havoc  We need to plan how we will stay on top of changes
  • 5. Failure to empower users and admins with the right permissions.  Find your responsible business content owners  Enable and Equip them to manage access to their content  Ensure management access is limited to those with appropriate permissions  Segment your administration responsibilities – Power Users, business owners
  • Everyone wants an easy button
  • Apply the Top 5 Security Essentials using ControlPoint  Easily make changes to or revoke permissions across any scope – even between farms  Audit Permissions to ensure only the right people have access  Meet compliance and governance requirements with regular scheduled reports  Monitor what users are doing – receive Alerts for unexpected security changes  Permissions Management wizard for the casual user
  • ControlPoint demo
  • Permissions Reporting Auditing Compliance ControlPoint: Security and Compliance BenefitsObjectives • Policy driven security and permissions across SharePoint farms • Seamless extension to out-of-the-box security administration • Increased compliance insight and transparency • Mitigate risk of data loss due unauthorized access to content • Provide audit trails of content access • Provide automation of governance policies
  • Best Practices  Make governance a priority  Look at your systems holistically (a business view), regardless of where the servers sit  Clarify and document your permissions, information architecture, templates, content types, taxonomy -- and ownership of each  First define what policies, procedures, and metrics are needed to manage your environment, and then look at what is possible across your various tools and platforms
