SharePoint & GDPR

GDPR hit us all. That is why we know our way through the various requirements applicable to German companies. Microsoft 365 already has a comprehensive toolset to implement them.

OUR APPROACH

Our expertise is our asset to ensure smooth and sustainable SharePoint processes.

Planning

At the start of the project, we work with you to prepare a comprehensive analysis, listing your requirements, which we examine in terms of potential and feasibility. In this way, we ensure that the project scope does not get out of hand, and you receive all those functionalities that support your business processes the most. We then plan the IT architecture, taking a detailed look at the processes in your departments. After all, we can only work out the best possible solution for you if we know your workflows in detail.

Concept

Once the demand analysis is finalized, we will set up your project in order to make the best use of Microsoft 365 and other applications for your business. Part of it is a detailed licensing consultation so that you fully understand the long-term costs associated with your solution package. Beyond that, we will show you the performance increase that the desired solution will bring to your daily work, after which we will conceptualize the individual product portfolio for you.

Implementation

Microsoft 365 programs and other systems are characterized by high standardization, simplifying and stabilizing implementation. During implementation, the applications are individually configured to your requirements so that you receive a customized solution in line with the GDPR directives featuring your corporate design. In this phase, joint permanent reviews and continuous target-actual comparisons ensure that the project remains strictly within the previously defined framework.

    FAQ

    While SharePoint is a “swiss army knife” platform that can fit almost any business need with the right implementation, in its core it is an Intranet platform, and the world’s most popular one. It started as a Document Management System and evolved into Global Intranet platform with endless extensibility features. With the deep integration with Microsoft Teams, you can now bring your SharePoint Intranet right within Teams with a few clicks and provide your users a single gateway to your organization’s resources. Over time, SharePoint also served the purpose of an Extranet, which nowadays is taken over by the Power Apps Portals. If you are not sure which of your needs can be met by Microsoft SharePoint, contact a certified Microsoft Partner like Impactory to get a free initial consultation. In an essence, SharePoint’s main usage scenarios are:

    • Easy access to information for employees
    • Easy content publishing for communication teams
    • One source of truth for company policies and procedures
    • Easy sharing and content targeting 
    • Team or department sites with info for team members, projects etc.
    • A place to share information about company news, events, new hires etc.
    • Real-time document collaboration with Microsoft 365 Apps
    • Global Search across organizational content

    No, SharePoint is here to stay. Microsoft is making big investments in SharePoint Online, its integration with Microsoft Teams and other products from the Microsoft 365 suite such as the native integration with Power Automate and PowerApps. We can only guess if and when we will get a newer version of SharePoint on-premises, but the thousands of hybrid deployments are proving that organizations in specific industries and jurisdictions still have a valid need for an on-premises deployment while enjoying the benefits of the cloud, too.

    • OneDrive for Business is a cloud storage space that is tied to an individual user account. It is where a user would typically start working on a document in a drat before sharing it with colleagues for collaboration or moving it to a Microsoft Teams or SharePoint Online space. If a user leaves the organization, their content in OneDrive for Business will get deleted in 30 days by default. Microsoft Teams utilizes OneDrive to store files send in private chats and recordings of meetings that were held outside of a Teams channel. OneDrive has a limited amount of space, typically 1 TB per user.
    • SharePoint Online is a team space for collaboration that is tied to any individual user account, but rather a group of people who upload, share and collaborate on the same content. If a person leaves the organization, their contributions in SharePoint will stay intact. SharePoint Online is the main backbone of Microsoft Teams as it comes to File storage. All files uploaded in a channel as well as channel meeting recordings are stored in SharePoint Online. SharePoint Online provides more storage space than OneDrive, typically 25 TB + 0.5 GB per licensed user.

    SharePoint Online is a world-renowned online service backed by one of the top cloud providers – Microsoft. It provides industry standard security features like:

    • MFA (Multi-factor Authentication)
    • Encryption with Customer Key and Double Key Encryption
    • Information Rights Management
    • Robust permission management structure
    • Support for Sensitivity labels and DLP (Data Loss Prevention) policies
    • Audit logging of all user and admin activities
    • Secure collaboration with Guests based on whitelisted domains
    • Backup, High Availability and Disaster Recovery that is handled by Microsoft
    • Customer Lockbox, allowing you to approve access of Microsoft support engineers to your data during troubleshooting of issues 
    • Setup a governance process and permission management strategy
    • Follow the principle of least privilege (do not provide more access than needed)
    • Define policies for syncing content to devices with the OneDrive sync client
    • Implement proper sharing controls (e.g., no Guests) in the SharePoint Admin Center 
    • Implement Customer Key or Double Key Encryption for SharePoint Online sites
    • Use Sensitive Info types to detect sensitive information in the content
    • Use Sensitivity labels to protect and encrypt information matching sensitive info types
    • Use DLP (Data Loss Prevention) policies to restrict sharing of sensitive information
    • Enable Audit logging for Microsoft 365, including SharePoint Online
    • Enable ATP (Advanced Threat Protection) features like ATP Safe Attachments
    • Enable MFA (Multi-Factor Authentication) for all users
    • Train your users. What you do as an organization to enforce security is a vital part of it.

    All customer files in SharePoint Online are protected by unique, per-file keys that are always exclusive to a single tenant. The keys are either created and managed by the SharePoint Online service, or when Customer Key is used, created, and managed by customers. When a file is uploaded, encryption is performed by SharePoint Online within the context of the upload request, before being sent to Azure storage. When a file is downloaded, SharePoint Online retrieves the encrypted customer data from Azure storage based on the unique document identifier and decrypts the customer data before sending it to the user. Azure storage has no ability to decrypt, or even identify or understand the customer data. All encryption and decryption happen in the same systems that enforce tenant isolation, which are Azure Active Directory and SharePoint Online. Microsoft recently announced the support for Double Key Encryption, where both keys are owned and stored in a customer-controlled environment.
