Security policies and settings in Office 2010
Published: May 16, 2012
You can use the Security Compliance Manager as a technical reference for the security settings and privacy options in Microsoft Office 2010, and you can also use it for other purposes. For example, the Microsoft Security Compliance Manager provides centralized security baseline management features, a baseline portfolio, customization capabilities, and security baseline export flexibility. These features speed up your organization’s ability to efficiently manage the security and compliance process for the most widely used Microsoft products. This includes Office 2010.
You can use the Security Compliance Manager and the Office 2010 Security Baseline to determine:
What a setting does.
What the default configuration is for a setting.
What the vulnerability, impact, and countermeasure is for a setting
Where to find the setting in the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC).
