People always want more data about how other organizations are implementing security and compliance. A lot of the existing data is from research organizations and is gated unless you have a subscription. Additional information is from vendors and may skew toward their view of the industry.
These issues are why RecordPoint jumped at the chance to co-sponsor independent research on how organizations view security and compliance and how they implemented them. We coordinated the research through CollabTalk, independent research, and technical marketing services company. Students at the Brigham Young University Marriott School of Business designed and executed the study. This approach ensures neutrality and that they followed research best practices. Microsoft also was a co-sponsor of the study.
This research focuses on how organizations have evolved (or not evolved) their governance planning and activities as they’ve moved from on-premises environments to the cloud (primarily Office 365), and seeks to provide CIOs, IT management, and security and compliance officers with a better understanding of the impacts of not evolving.
The goal of this research is to examine how organizations are managing security and compliance today. We looked specifically at the evolving patterns of the end user and team collaboration and identifying the changing workplace habits that are impacting costs and risks due to security and compliance gaps in the business processes and technologies used.
While the primary focus of this research was on SharePoint customers, the study examined the broader enterprise collaboration story, encompassing Office 365, Windows, and mobility.

RecordPoint is also hosting a panel discussion on May 9th, 2019 about the results of this research. In this panel webinar of Microsoft MVPs, we will discuss the results of the survey and research. Join us to learn how CIOs, IT management, and security and compliance officers can apply the findings to your organization. Live attendees can ask your own questions, or we will send you the recording if you cannot attend live.
Register now to participate in the discussion live to ask your own questions. Or, if the panel has passed you can view the recording.
