What do we do with all this STUFF that gets created whenever someone spins up a new Team? What about SharePoint?

SOL01 - Secure Collaboration in M365 within a Zero Trust Lens

Microsoft 365 is designed to quickly bring together collaborators across your agency and your partners. That built in collaboration, however, creates new concerns tracking who has access across your environment and the data with which they are interacting within a Zero Trust architecture mode. As of this past summer, the Executive order on Cybersecurity put Federal networks at the center of focus when it comes to Zero Trust architecture and overnight IT organizations had to shift their priorities to meet the order. When viewed individually, core pillars of Zero Trust, such as network, data, and user, are very clearly bound in M365: How is our service secured? How do we secure sensitive data? What users are authenticated in our system? However, this approach misses an intersection across Zero Trusts pillars in the collaboration spaces themselves. Join AvePoint as we discuss how Federal agencies can leverage Microsoft 365’s collaborative power using a Zero Trust model. We will discuss: • Automating policy enforcement at the workspace (Teams, SharePoint, and M365 Groups) • Workspace compliance, lifecycle, and permissions recertification based on data sensitivity • Intelligent reporting of exposure risk based on sensitive information types and permissions data
