Private Workspaces Shared with Everyone

This article explains how to edit the Private Workspaces Shared with Everyone policy.

Syskit Point provides a predefined Private Workspaces Shared with Everyone policy that is applied tenant-wide to private Microsoft 365 Groups, Microsoft Teams, and Sites.

A vulnerability is detected if Syskit Point discovers a private Microsoft 365 Group, Microsoft Teams, or Site with access given to one of the following security groups - Everyone, Everyone except external users, or All Users.

Oversharing workspaces might lead to security risks, administration difficulty, and a challenge managing access control.

To edit the policy, navigate to the Policies settings screen and click the Edit Policy (1) icon.

The Edit Policy dialog opens where you can select:

  • The Severity level (1).

    • The severity level set by default for this policy is High

    • You can select between three levels of severity:

      • High

      • Medium

      • Low

  • How to resolve a vulnerability when it's detected. The options are:

    • Resolve Manually (2): Selecting this flags the vulnerability on the Security and Compliance Dashboard, where manual actions can be taken to resolve it.

    • Resolve Automatically (3): Selecting this means that Syskit Point automatically resolves the vulnerability by removing access granted to Everyone, Everyone except external users, and All users groups.

    • By default, the policy is set as Resolve Manually.

Once you've selected the one that best suits your needs for this policy, click the Save button (4) to store your preference.
