SPECIFICATION:

This specification covers the various editions of Torsion Information Security (SharePoint 2010 Edition, SharePoint 2013 Edition, SharePoint 2016 Edition, SharePoint Online Edition, and any future editions not mentioned herein)

Torsion Information Security enhances the information security capabilities of SharePoint, by packaging a set of proprietary modifications to the underlying SharePoint system which are collectively designed to increase the effectiveness of information security in SharePoint.

The set of modifications includes, but is not limited to:

  • 'Security Audiences' (also known as 'business-centric security' or 'business-driven security') which allow the specification of information security configurations within SharePoint using dynamic combinations of business rules, intended to be configured by information owners / business managers / business users (as opposed to technical users / administrators / IT-centric personnel); where the scope of dimensions and options for said business rules is configurable to be applicable to the licensee organisation; where any possible information security configuration is assigned a title which is generated automatically and consistently; where the membership of the set of users who are granted access to information by means of the information security configuration is assumed to be transitory and dependent on changing business circumstances; where the membership of the set of users who are granted access to information by means of the information security configuration may be seen by the user by way of an information display.
  • 'Content Classifications' which allow the assignment of a label to collections of information (where the term 'collection' may apply to between zero and many individual pieces of information) stored in SharePoint (at site collection, site, list, library, folder, item or document level), where the label assignment of the label automatically applies a set of information security configurations (which may include any combination of 'Security Audiences', SharePoint Groups, Domain Groups and Named Users) to the collection of information, and the definition of the label and said set of information security configurations is configurable to be applicable to the licensee organisation; where the label applied to a collection of information is made clearly visible to users of the SharePoint system who may be viewing or interacting with the collection of information; where the definition of the label includes a title, description, icon and colour; where the set of information security configurations applied to a collection of information may differ, but is automatically compared and contrasted with the set of information security configurations associated with the label, with any discrepancies made clear to the user, and an automated function made available to eliminate any such discrepancies.
  • 'Security Reporting' which allows generation of report documents and information displays that include complete lists of the people who have access to collections of information (where the term 'collection' may apply to between zero and many individual pieces of information) stored in SharePoint, including what levels of access they have to the collection of information, and by means of which piece of information security configuration they are receiving said access; where report documents may be generated immediately, or automatically according to a schedule that is configurable by the licensee.
  • 'User Attribute Management' which provides a consolidated view and means to manage the set of attributes and attribute values which describe users of a SharePoint system, which are used to build and calculate the membership of information security configurations including 'Security Audiences'.
