For those unfamiliar with the notion of governance, it may seem a trivial concept. While certain decisions related to governance appear to be common sense, it is imperative that businesses create the schema for how they want operations to run, outline these plainly and take proactive stances to prevent data breaches, confusion, and inefficiencies. Governance is integral if the business is to achieve its objectives.
Governance for Microsoft teams refers to how data and user permissions are managed in adherence to business standards and specifications in order to guarantee the protection and security of the organisations data.
Because Teams is a platform for collaboration and information sharing, your organisation needs a fixed procedure on exactly how Teams is intended to be used by everyone with access.
Think of Governance as the rule book that guides and informs all Teams users on the correct methodologies and conventions the organisation has chosen to employ, as it pertains to file naming, channel creation and more.
Improve the security of the company and prevent data breaches – if everyone knows the procedure and has the appropriate access to information for their level of clearance, the likelihood of error and a data breach is minimised.
Increase productivity – With comprehensive systems in place, chaos is averted, data stored correctly, and employees can be clear on exactly what they are allowed to do with Microsoft Teams. There will be no uncertainty, allowing productivity to stay high.
