Excellent list of Sharepoint Best Practices published last week in TechNet
The things we can control ….
– A solid infrastructure gets half the job done. Take a look at couple of Extranet designs
2. Secure Login
– The very first thing you want to implement is Secure Login. By default SharePoint is going to prompt for credentials if you are logging in to the portal from a computer which is not connected to corpnet. For environments which are going to use information which is going to be conferential in nature, I recommend implementing Two factor Authentication.
3. Protection against download copies
- All a user needs is a read access to download data and use it offline. Data downloaded then can’t be monitored and can be send to anyone. You can implement IRM in order to protect data in such scenario.
4. Scan the data
– It is very important to know where the confidential/sensitive/PPI information is stored. Imagine a situation where some sensitive information is stored in a library which is not monitored aggressively or is not supposed to contain sensitive data
5. Abuse of Rights
– This is where things gets interesting, how to protect data from the users who have access to it?
– You really need a detailed auditing, OOB SharePoint does a good job in auditing but you can always buy a third party product to get more detailed Auditing. Do not ignore Auditing.
Some early strategies for next generation of Windows is shared by Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella in this article.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said during this week’s earnings call that the next version of Windows will “streamline” from three operating systems — Windows, Windows RT, and Windows Phone — “into a single, converged [OS] for screens of all sizes
.” He also detailed Microsoft’s scaled-down device strategy, including its integration of Nokia, a subject Nadella had previously broached in only the broadest terms.
Regarding the next version of Windows — which is codenamed Threshold and likely will hit the market as Windows 9 — Nadella wasn’t talking about a single UI that magically scales across devices. There won’t be a desktop on your phone, and it’s unlikely that touch-oriented Live Tiles will appear by default when Threshold loads on PCs and laptops.
