SharePoint Security Statement

SharePoint Security Statement

  1. Even though specific SharePoint sites or items may be password protected, SharePoint is an Internet-connected server which means that anyone in the world can generally contact the server and attempt to log in.
  2. Anyone, anywhere in the world, with the correct username and password can access information on the SharePoint server (i.e. data within SharePoint is a username and password away from anyone on the Internet).
  3. There are two kinds of data to consider:
    1. Restricted and Sensitive Data
      1. Generally, this type of data should not be placed in SharePoint.
    2. Intellectual Property that is not restricted, but should remain private
      1. This type of data may be placed in SharePoint at the discretion of project leaders.
  4. In general, if you are concerned about liability or legal ramifications, you should not place the data in SharePoint.  If you want to share restricted or sensitive data with a group, please consider using Purdue’s FileLocker sytem:  https://filelocker.purdue.edu.  While FileLocker is not as flexible as SharePoint, it is secure and encrypts data.

Please note that the first few minutes of the video demonstrates a new feature that enables Office documents to be viewed within SharePoint 2010 in the browser.  A local copy of Office is not required for viewing Office documents in SharePoint 2010 and this feature works with Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari.

Also note that there will be four TechTalks in the next two weeks for those who would like an informal Q&A session (dates and times included below).

Thank you.  Onward and upward!  🙂

How To Log Into SharePoint

If you’re having problems connecting to a SharePoint site, the following pointers may help…

1. The main COE and Departmental SharePoint sites can be found here:

2. If you are trying to access SharePoint from off-campus, you do NOT need to use the Purdue VPN.  You can simply connect to the site you need.

3. If SharePoint prompts you for a username and password, you do NOT need to prefix your username with “ONEPURDUE\”.

4. For more help with SharePoint, please see:

Thank you and Happy SharePointing!!!
