A New Year's Security Resolution for SharePoint and Office 365

Snowden. Sony. Security. Say No More.


Headlines in recent months have clearly indicated that the time has come to focus on fundamentals of security management. As we begin a new year, it's critical to examine what's gone wrong with enterprise information security in recent years, to correct course, and to establish best practices for managing access and ensuring compliance with established security policies.

Join technology analysts, thought leaders, and Microsoft MVPs Dan Holme and Michael Noel for a candid look at the strengths and weaknesses of access management in on-premises SharePoint, cloud-based Office 365, and hybrid environments. Learn what you can do out-of-the box with SharePoint and Office 365 to manage access more effectively. Explore important capabilities including OneDrive for Business, external sharing, and Office 365 Groups. And identify the tough decisions you must make about how to support enterprise requirements for security and compliance through the SharePoint & Office 365 partner ecosystem. You'll take away tons of practical strategic and tactical guidance to establish a secure platform that supports both business-critical information and agility.

Make security your resolution for the hybrid new years ahead!
