Collab365 MicroJobs - I will conduct an EU GDPR Assessment of your Office 365 implementation

The EU GDPR came into force in May 2018, is your Office 365 implementation ready? Is it helping your employees stay compliant?

I will conduct a GDPR (EU General Data Protection Regulation) assessment interview with you and relevant stakeholders on your Office 365 implementation. The review will ask a series of targeted questions, based on my experience in information governance and the GDPR. The questions will focus on the type of data you are storing in Office 365 and the technology, process and policies that you have in place to ensure that any Personal Data or Sensitive Personal Data of your employees and customers is stored and governed appropriately.

One Step Forward... A review of Microsoft's latest SharePoint Governance guidance

One step forward... No steps back.... <phew>

This is a good news blog post.

As you will undoubtedly know I have my own, very clear (I hope) perspectives about what SharePoint Governance really means.

Historically, Microsoft's guidance has been very IT and technical feature based and I have been unhappy with its contents and effectively the lack of guidance they have offered.

With this latest release of it's SharePoint 2013 Governance Guidance (November 19th 2013), things haven't changed as much as I would have liked, but there are definite significant signs of things moving in the right direction, it articulates Governance in a less techie way and I haven't found myself shouting at my screen quite as much!

The purpose of this blog post is to run through the contents and highlight my perspective of where it works and where it falls short and also, I hope, articulate some pointers to other content and approaches that will help you on your Governance journey.
