Common Concerns with Microsoft Office 365

What data security features Come with Office 365?

Many of the licensing options for Office 365 offer several security features. Almost all of them are not turned on by default and require configuration and security know-how to set up.

Are there industry specific configurations for Office 365 I should know about?

Office 365 is built to serve any industry. Your organization, however, may have specific compliance needs and requirements that impact how you use cloud applications.

How can I secure my sensitive data in the Cloud?

Microsoft provides many options to protect and secure your sensitive data. But, as with most security initiatives, a “set it and forget it” approach is not recommended. Hackers and data thieves continue to evolve and get more sophisticated. It’s important to make sure that you frequently review and adjust any previously configured security settings.

Is Cloud based email right for my business?

Cloud services continue to provide many business benefits for organizations of all sizes. But it’s important to remember that email in the Cloud may not be right for everyone. Before going Cloud, let an experienced services provider assess your business needs.

What Microsoft and Other Experts Are Saying About Office 365 Security

Microsoft offers some of the most secure data centers available in North America, with a vast array of compliance checks and security-based procedures designed to keep customer data exactly where it is suppose to be. However, while Microsoft’s built security features are impressive, the out of the box security features do little to protect you from email-based attacks and compromised passwords.

Have you reviewed Microsoft’s security and compliance suggestions?

One common misconception with Office 365 Security is that is it secure with much intervention from a business owner or IT leader. The truth is, Microsoft does offer many tools and suggestions for keeping your accounts safe, but many of them require time, effort, and general security knowledge to properly configure.

In addition to Microsoft’s constantly evolving security recommendations, the U.S Government’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), released a series of suggestions and recommendations for keeping your Office 365 accounts secure.

CISA’s Top Office 365 Security Recommendations:

  • Enable Multi-factor Authentication (MFA)
  • Enable Mailbox Auditing
  • Enable AD Password Sync
  • Disable legacy email protocols
