The cloud is here to stay, and Microsoft SharePoint users are finally making the move. Since 2013, the number of SharePoint users with intentions of moving their SharePoint sites to the cloud has doubled, according to a 2015 AIIM survey.1 Many users are making the change to reduce IT costs, improve access for external partners and increase mobility.
Casey, IT manager at a mid-size healthcare organization, is one of those users planning to move his organization to a cloud-based SharePoint infrastructure. But because Casey works in healthcare, he’s especially concerned about the security of the cloud. And he’s not alone with that concern — AIIM reports that 62 percent of SharePoint users cite security as their biggest concern when considering a cloud or hybrid solution for SharePoint.

• Identity and access
• Data protection and privacy
• Compliance and governance
