Becoming a SharePoint Online Admin Expert

SharePoint Online has many services that you need to be familiar with to successfully manage your collaboration content. In this full day workshop we are going to learn about these different services and how to manage them so SharePoint Online is properly configured, secure, and optimized. We will begin by creating a new Microsoft 365 tenant, explore how we can customize the M365 administrator dashboard to provide us only information related to the Microsoft 365 services we are working with like SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. We will create and assign users to access SharePoint Online both as an end user or and administrator. We will then roll up our sleeves and configure SharePoint Online using both the GUI and PowerShell including; creating and configuring site collections, configuring user profile settings, creating and implementing a structured taxonomy using the term store, configuring the search service to ensure your users are able to quickly find the information they need, and explore several other SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business settings. During these configurations you will learn how these settings differ from those in SharePoint Server. When you leave, you’ll have all the skills necessary to configure and manage the different SharePoint Online components using both the SharePoint Online Admin Center, and PowerShell. In addition to these skills, you will have a live Microsoft 365 trial tenant that you can use when you get back to the office and you can use while attending other conference sessions.

Microsoft 365 Compliance: Implementing information governance, risk, and compliance management

Microsoft 365 gives enterprises and government organizations the tools they need in the modern workplace to identify their risky information and to govern their data effectively to meet regulatory compliance needs. These tools help protect sensitive data from accidental and malicious data loss, and they protect the organization from risk by ensuring we retain our data appropriately following regulatory controls such as GDPR, NIST, and CIS. Implementing these compliance solutions requires a clear understanding of the capabilities available in the Microsoft cloud and industry best practices for establishing a data governance framework. In this all-day workshop, David Drever and Joanne Klein will help you learn how to develop a framework for information governance for enterprises and government organizations, including planning a record retention schedule and implementing retention labels/policies. They’ll teach you how to leverage disposition reviews, implement event-based retention, and automatically apply retention labels to your data. They’ll discuss how utilizing Compliance Manager, and Insider Risk Management can further govern your environment. Finally, you will learn how to use eDiscovery to facilitate legal holds and “Freedom of Information and Privacy” (FOIP) requests. Join David and Joanne to discover how to implement data governance and compliance in Microsoft 365! Check out our workshop preview: https://youtu.be/0uFJnqQYP60

You Have Sensitive Information. Now Let's Protect It.

Every organization has data considered sensitive to their business, employees, or even the industry they exist within. Data breaches happen too often and are increasing. As a result, protecting its data has become a priority for many organizations worldwide. Microsoft provides several tools for identifying sensitive information within the organization and protecting it from being provided to sources that should not have it. In this session, we'll cover features and processes such as Microsoft Information Protection (MIP), Data Loss Prevention (DLP), and more to help protect your organization's sensitive information from leaving your control and falling into those hands that should not have it.

Microsoft Syntex is a big step forward in providing the ability to intelligently identify content across your Microsoft 365 environment. Unstructured content is being produced at an exponential rate in our modern workplaces today and we need a way to manage it at scale by providing structure (content types and metadata) and governance (security and compliance controls) to it. Microsoft Syntex is that and so much more! To demonstrate this new capability, Joanne Klein will walk through a live demo of using a Microsoft Syntex AI document understanding model to intelligently identify Statements of Work across SharePoint libraries. The walkthrough will cover setup, training, deployment, and all the "extras" you get with a Syntex license. Microsoft Syntex. It’s almost magic.

Increasing Adoption in Microsoft 365 Information and Records Management

Businesses are ramping up the adoption of information and records management (IRM) within their organization. However, the problem many are facing is that IRM can require a lot of user interaction to be fully effective. These increased requirements on the user greatly affect the adoption of IRM processes. Microsoft 365 provides several powerful and robust features that can increase records management within the organization while decreasing the load on the end-user. This session will cover many topics such as auto-classification, retention inheritance, and trainable classifiers to assist organizations with their information and records management adoption.

Secure Collaboration in M365 within a Zero Trust Lens

Microsoft 365 quickly brings together collaborators across your agency and your partners. That built-in collaboration, however, creates new concerns around tracking who has access across your environment. In the past years we've talked about Governance, but by not talking about security we are leaving a large hole in the security of our data. Organizations must monitor how users interact with data within a Zero Trust Architecture. When viewed individually, the core pillars of Zero Trust, such as network, data, and user, are easily manageable within M365: How is our service secured? How do we protect sensitive data? Which users do we authenticate in our system? However, this approach misses the intersection across Zero Trusts pillars in the collaboration spaces themselves. In this presentation, we will discuss the importance of including your Collaboration Workspaces (Teams, SharePoint Site Collections, and Groups) in your security plans and how to leverage native and 3rd party tools to best accomplish this.

Data recovery options for SharePoint/OneDrive

SharePoint and OneDrive include several content recovery options for SharePoint/OneDrive administrators, site collection administrators, and end users. Educating your users, and site collection administrators will lighten the burden on your these admins. Using either a GUI or PowerShell you can backup and restore your entire farm or components of your SharePoint deployment. You can also perform more granular content backups by exporting site collections, site, libraries, and list. SharePoint Server also provides the option of recovering site collections, sites, list and libraries from content databases that are no longer part of the SharePoint farm. With a vast majority of your SharePoint Server content stored in SQL Server it is imperative that you have an efficient way to recover items or entire databases as quickly as possible. This discussion will introduce the Best Practices framework that will allow your SharePoint and OneDrive administrators to configure SharePoint as well as SQL Server for quick content recovery, minimizing the downtime and providing shorter yet achievable Service Level Agreements (SLA’s).
