Securing your organization

You can use a number of GitHub features to help keep your organization secure.

Organization owners can configure organization security settings.

Introduction

This guide shows you how to configure security features for an organization. Your organization's security needs are unique and you may not need to enable every security feature. For more information, see "GitHub security features."

Some features are available for all repositories. Additional features are available to enterprises that use GitHub Advanced Security. 更多信息请参阅“关于 GitHub Advanced Security”。

Managing access to your organization

You can use roles to control what actions people can take in your organization. For more information, see "Roles in an organization."

Creating a default security policy

You can create a default security policy that will display in any of your organization's public repositories that do not have their own security policy. For more information, see "Creating a default community health file."

Managing Dependabot 警报 and the dependency graph

Enterprise owners can configure the dependency graph and Dependabot 警报 for an enterprise. For more information, see "Enabling the dependency graph for your enterprise" and "Enabling Dependabot for your enterprise."

For more information, see "About Dependabot 警报," "Exploring the dependencies of a repository," and "Managing security and analysis settings for your organization."

Managing dependency review

Dependency review is an Advanced Security feature that lets you visualize dependency changes in pull requests before they are merged into your repositories. For more information, see "About dependency review."

Dependency review is available when dependency graph is enabled for 您的 GitHub Enterprise Server 实例 and you enable Advanced Security for the organization (see below).
