Top five tips for Office 365 security and compliance

Some of the main challenges Office 365 admins face include threats to data privacy, confidentiality breaches, and ensuring compliance with IT regulations. In this webinar, we'll discuss five steps you can take to effectively secure your Office 365 setup and ensure compliance with various IT regulatory standards.

Audit user and administrator access.

  • Monitor user and admin logon activities, including successful and failed logon attempts.
  • Track daily logon counts per user to detect any abnormal spikes in logons.

Monitor administrator activities.

  • Monitor all Azure and Exchange admin activities.
  • Track admin roles in your Office 365 setup and audit admin role changes.
  • Detect Office 365 security group membership changes.

Create custom audit profiles to isolate and monitor events.

  • Create custom audit profiles to capture individual activities rather than monitoring so many events that you end up missing important activities in your Office 365 setup.
  • Set alerts to notify admins if any event monitored through audit profiles occurs. 

Monitor file access and sharing.

  • Audit file access and sharing in OneDrive for Business.
  • Monitor activities in other productivity apps such as Microsoft Teams, Sway, Power BI, and Yammer.

Set up multi-factor authentication for Office 365.

  • Enhance the level of security on user logons by configuring multi-factor authentication (MFA) for your Office 365 users.
