[Owasp-leaders] Confidentiality in SharePoint

Hello Dhruv,

The intention is to use SharePoint to manage all documents and other
corporate content.

Exactly, that is the issue - when permissions are not maintained properly
and users forget to revoke permissions.
How can I then assure my client there is complete secrecy?

Also, using a scenario where a user mistakenly shares a document/content
with another user?
The client needs assurances that such a situation will not compromise
confidentiality of the document.

Thanks, Theo.
