Security is an ever-moving target. Find out what tools you should be implementing in your cybersecurity strategy.
Cybersecurity is a higher priority than ever before, thanks to the rise in random and targeted attacks, most of which attempt to compromise users through email to steal their identity and logon credentials to launch attacks…
Most companies use Microsoft 365 for communication, user productivity and file management, and can use the tools included in the suite as part of a strategy to build a strong defence against cyberthreats.
In recent years Microsoft has worked alongside the UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) to create comprehensive guidance to implement effective security for UK government organisations using Microsoft 365.
Whilst the guidance was originally devised to help UK Public Sector organisations we believe there is value in the guidance for all businesses.
The NCSC recommended security guidance from Microsoft breaks down security measures into Good, Better and Best sections exploring the following areas:
Identity: recommended controls explaining how to secure identities which authenticate against Office 365 services.
Office 365 Service Configuration: recommended controls for Office 365 describing the settings you need to secure the service and raise the security standard of the organisations’ Office 365 tenant.
Security Tool Configuration: guidance on how to implement and deploy the included Defender products to achieve the appropriate level of security and reporting for your organisation.
