Securing remote workers with Microsoft 365

Securing remote workers with Microsoft 365

Cyber-threats have risen dramatically since the start of lock down as attackers spotted new gaps to exploit in distributed workforces. Ransomware attacks have increased by 300%, having a devastating impact on the organisations affected.

There are a host of security features included in the Microsoft 365 suite, which protect remote workers against these threats. But many organisations haven’t had the time, skills or knowledge to implement them, as they moved at pace to keep employees productive. However, as remote and hybrid working look set to stay for the long term, it’s time to level up.

In this webinar we will explore some of the most common security features that are available through the different license sets starting with Office 365 E1 (which was available for free for a certain period of time) through to the full Microsoft 365 E5 suite. We will walk though some of the security settings that you can apply straight away, what common security tools you can apply with a step up to Microsoft 365 E3 and finally the major advanced security features in Microsoft 365 E5.

We will guide you through each licensing type covering possible security settings and highlighting differences in:

  • Office 365 E1 and E3 Security – some of the security baseline settings around internal and external sharing across the platform, limiting sync of files, enabling MFA and how to check and disabling legacy authentication.
  • Microsoft 365 E3 Security – we explore conditional access policies, applying a more flexible MFA strategy, device management and data loss prevention.
  • Microsoft 355 E5 Security – making sense of the Microsoft Defender family, risk based conditional access and automatic labelling of sensitive data.
