Is this keeping you awake at night? How do we enable users to work seamlessly across company boundaries while keeping company assets secure? Global economies require cross company collaboration Users need to be able to safely share content across company boundaries Companies need to keep sensitive content secure in a complex environment How do we do that?

Our collaboration landscape Online Everything comes together On-premises Dedicated environments Three petabytes of Office 365 data spanning 3 geos Self-service & managed 180K Office 365 Groups + 75K non-group SharePoint sites + 230K OneDrive for Business <6K sites and portals Regional collaboration, team, divisional sites & portals Team sites and portals 150k Each group gets 50k 80k Hybrid On-premises shared services: search, profile, taxonomy Office 365 shared services: search, profile, Office Graph, taxonomy Office 365 Groups
External sharing of files Key for cross company collaboration but… Which methods can/should I use? Team shared library, ODB, Teams and Outlook groups offer external sharing capabilities Why not sharing through email attachments? Key element of collaboration is co-creating content; email attachments do not support this capability What is the most secure approach? Leverage external membership capabilities across all O365 groups-based experiences Share via links to your team shared library or ODB (you can always remove the link); minimize attachments

…rely on holistic governance run by our IT org Container and content governance Security governance Solution governance Discovery governance
Pillars of container and content governance Empower employees • Support self-service creation. • Use lifecycle management. Identify valuable content • Require classification for containers. • Scan with data loss prevention (DLP). Protect assets • Limit reach. • Enforce policy. • Use conditional access. • Use Information Rights Management (IRM). Ensure accountability • Manage group / site ownership. • Review external membership. • Use IT services.
Container and file classification Highly Confidential The most critical data for Microsoft. Share it only with named recipients. Confidential Crucial to achieving our goals. Limited distribution—on a need-to-know basis. General Daily work product used and shared throughout Microsoft, like personal settings and zip codes. Share it throughout Microsoft internally. Public Public data is unrestricted data meant for public consumption, like publicly released source code and announced financials. Share it freely.
Protect the content Detecting and preventing oversharing: DLP Detect and block sharing based on patterns in file Ignite announcement: DLP coming to chats too Protecting files: Apply protection to file based on label Protection applied will prevent external people who are not in protection policy to open Protecting the grop: We run jobs to change Team settings based on Team classification Ignite announcement: Unified labels will bring this to Office 365 groups
Lessons learned Employees will take easiest path IT roadblocks may worsen problem Make it so IT approved path IS best & easiest path Educate employees on how & when to share safely Develop a classification / label model and create policies Keep labels meaningful: “HBI” became “Highly Confidential” Modern collaboration has big impact Share files via link to SharePoint
