Best Compliance and Security Resources of 2014

Decorative image of 2014It feels like we just started 2014, but somehow it is already December. With the year coming to a close, it is a great time to reflect back on lessons learned. Over the past year, we’ve blogged on topics ranging from data privacy, SharePoint security, Web accessibility, content compliance, HIPAA, ITAR and much more, to help any organization seeking to improve content compliance and security with suggestions on where to start, what to avoid and best practices.

As we wrap up another year, we thought we would share our top viewed blogs of 2014:

WEBINAR: Extending Your Data Security Controls to Office 365

Decorative image of cableThe ease of access and availability of Office 365 has made it a compelling platform for many enterprises, in addition to its cost advantages. But it also brings many challenges. Is it safe to store confidential information in the cloud? How can it be secured? Can data protection policies be centralized across on-premises and Cloud environments?

HiSoftware has a tradition of automating compliance and security governance on-premises. Join SharePoint MVP Chris McNulty on Tuesday, December 9, 2014 at 11:00am EST/4:00pm GMT for a review of how you can seamlessly extend the same automatic policies and controls from your on-premises SharePoint environment to Office 365.

Keeping Data Safe This Black Friday

Decorative image of "E-Buy" Computer Key Tomorrow, most Americans will be enjoying Thanksgiving festivities with their family, celebrating what they are truly thankful for over a feast of plenty. However, the Friday after is a different story. While some might want to stay put and watch the shopping unfold on the news, others will be in the depths of shopping galore. And while I do like a little shopping myself, I’d like to take a minute to remind everyone about keeping data safe this black Friday.

High profile retail data breaches have also been of plenty over the last year. It was almost a year ago that Target was breached, and Sally Beauty, Neiman Marcus, Michaels, Kmart and Home Depot have all recently suffered data breaches that exposed their customers’ personal and payment card data. With billions to be spent on Black Friday, and a lot of that spent via credit and debit cards, retailers are responsible for a whopping amount of personally identifiable information (PII) and financial information.

Vampires feed on the blood of living creatures and cause mischief amongst the neighborhoods they live. This Halloween, avoid vampires in the workplace. These are the employees that maliciously suck information like client contacts, internal communications on products and confidential information from the organization. With 50% of employees admitting to taking corporate data with them when they leave a job, it’s important these vampires are stopped.

AFM Module Supports SharePoint 2013

AFM Screen ShotWhile public-facing websites have traditionally been the focus for accessibility, the growing reliance on systems like SharePoint for internal collaboration requires organizations to also consider application accessibility. Today we announced that the latest version of the Accessibility Foundation Module (AFM) for SharePoint now supports SharePoint 2013. AFM ensures SharePoint environments can be used and accessed by all users in compliance with Section 508 and WCAG 2.0 standards.
