Fixing the "Everyone" Problem

With all of the expertise and technology safeguards in place, how is it possible that a major risk to unstructured data on shared file systems cannot be easily reversed? Well it goes something like this: As an administrator, you or maybe your predecessor set up a couple of file systems or shared drives. Some of the folders on those file shares were left wide open, and you relied on data owners to define the access permissions. On other folders, you locked things down by assigning access permissions only to certain groups. Over time, though, even the locked-down folders opened up. That's because Windows Server is designed to facilitate access.
