Custom Google Doc Permissions

Custom Google Doc Permissions

🔐 Custom Google Doc Permissions

We're thrilled to announce our latest feature: the ability to update Google Doc permissions via workflows. This will allow InfoSec teams to streamline user permission management in security incidents.

We understand the importance of efficient collaboration and information security. Now equipped with the ability to update Google Doc permissions using workflows, teams can automatically grant and revoke user access to Google Docs.

Let's take a closer look at the key enhancements in this update:

  • Streamlined Permissions Management: We simplified the process of managing and updating Google Doc permissions. You no longer have to navigate to Google Docs to grant or revoke access for users joining the incident. Access can now all be controlled via Slack or the web UI.
  • Enhanced Security with Real-Time Permission Updates: Security incidents require stricter access control. You don’t want non-participating users to have access to private incident documents. The new feature enables you to automatically revoke access as soon as a user is no longer subscribed to the incident. This prevents unwanted lingering access and helps organizations demonstrate compliance with data protection regulations.
  • Improved Team Efficiency: InfoSec teams face significant time constraints due to the critical nature of their incidents. The ability to automatically provision Google Doc access saves valuable time and effort by eliminating the manual process of managing access rights. This automation allows the response team to focus on more critical tasks like mitigating security threats and implementing improved security measures.

InfoSec teams are responsible for safeguarding sensitive information and ensuring that only authorized individuals have access to critical resources. With this new feature, InfoSec teams can effectively manage access control for confidential incident documents. This reduces the risk of unauthorized access and helps maintain the confidentiality of sensitive information

Here's an instructional video to help you get started on automating Google Doc permissions.
