SYSVOL and NETLOGON shares on domain controllers

Last Modified: 2016-04-14
we are doing some risk assessment security work of our domain controllers. On each there are shares named SYSVOL and NETLOGON. Both of which are accesible to everyone/authenticated users. Is there a reason why this is set that way, or do these shares contain any sensitive informaiton which should not be shared to global groups like everyone?
