Chicago Data Governance Meetup

I am excited to announce the first meeting of the Chicago Data Governance Meetup is this Thursday, July 26th.  I have been doing SharePoint\Office 365 and Azure user groups for the better part of 8 years now.  I was beginning to transition out of the SharePoint world and let my SharePoint group go, it was a hard decision but necessary at the time.

A short time later, I started my career with AvePoint and was thrust back into the SharePoint\Office 365 space.  Now I am focused more on getting clients migrated to new platforms, and helping them figure out how to best manage and protect their information.

Governance always seems to be a huge topic in the SharePoint world, but it is one of the most difficult things to accomplish.  I thought it would be nice to get a group of people together to talk about common problems and solutions to them.

We will go over the goals of the group and what we want the direction to be, Intro to Governance, the importance of good governance

Schedule:
5:30-6:00 pm – Networking
6:00-6:20 pm – Intro to the Group
6:20-7:10 pm – Presentation
7:10-7:30ish – Questions and Group Discussion

I encourage you to attend and help grow our group by spreading the word!

Introduction To Data Loss Prevention in SharePoint 2016

Everywhere your data exists, moves or is shared, you need to protect it. With a Data Loss Prevention (DLP) policy in SharePoint Server 2016, you can identify, monitor, and automatically protect sensitive information across your site collections.  Learn the basics of DLP and how you can start better protecting your data.

What is Data Loss Prevention?

  • Data loss prevention (DLP) is a strategy for making sure that end users do not send sensitive or critical information outside the corporate network.
  • DLP Software products help a network administrator control what data end users can transfer so that users cannot accidentally or maliciously share data that could put the organization at risk.

I recently created a presentation for a Lunch & Learn at my company, AvePoint, and decided to share the slides:

The information comes primarily from Microsoft’s documentation with a couple of slides based off of information from Vlad Catrinescu’s presentation at Ignite 2016.

I am working on adding information on the differences between SharePoint 2016 and Office 365 and will update with the new slides when I complete it.

Hope it you find it informative.
