The phased, risk-based perspective outlined in this paper aligns investments and priorities to accomplish the greatest security return for existing SharePoint deployments. Security plans should include both preventative and analytical capabilities and incorporate automated tools to provide controls and information that cannot be addressed practically by native SharePoint functionality or corporate resources.
