- Implement MFA for Admin and regular users
- Use separate accounts for administration
- Custom configuration of threat protection
- configure protection against ransomware
- Configure anti-phising
- Configure ATP Safe-attachments
- Configure ATP Safe-links

NowYou can use enabled Auditing and use audit information and reports available in Microsoft cloud services to more effectively manage user experience, mitigate risks, and fulfill compliance obligations. In this video I’ll demonstrate you to enable and leverage Auditing feature in #Office365
For businesses using Office 365 and Microsoft 365, add a setting that requires your users to log in using multi-factor authentication. When you make this change, users will be prompted to set up their phone for two-factor authentication next time they log in.
Using multi-factor authentication is one of the easiest and most effective ways to increase the security of your organization. It’s easier than it sounds – when you log in, multi-factor authentication means you’ll type a code from your phone to get access to Microsoft 365.
Enabling MFA in Office is one the steps toward best practices and it also improves your tenant’s secure score
A few weeks ago I’ve turned on Cloud App security feature in my Office 365 Subscription. I was surprised today when i started getting the alerts that there were some attempts made to login as my on my account. In less than two hours there were m15 attempts and they were all outside US and from an unknown device. First I didn’t know where it came from but when I logged on the links provided and I re-called that I did setup some policies a weeks ago.
As you can see below there were three email sent to me whenever there was an attempt made to hack into my account
And here is the policy matched and alert was triggered
The Next Step – Review the alert
The next action was to Review the alert and investigate it. I was brought on to this page
What did I configure? It was not enabled by default
As you can see, in GOVERNANCE I’ve options to select the action.
Pro Tip !

Microsoft has identified a condition where Free/Busy lookups from On-Premises to O365 in a hybrid configuration may fail.
This problem occurs because of a known issue that affects OAuth connectivity in Exchange Sever 2016 CU8.
To work around this issue, create personal archive mailboxes for each cloud mailbox.
This problem is scheduled to be fixed in Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 Cumulative Update 9 (CU9). For a supported fix for CU8, contact Microsoft Support.
Hi, I’m speaking again after the summer break. This time I’m speaking to NYC Enterprise Collaboration User Group. There is no fee to attend this event but you will need to register the event on meetup. Click the url below.
Businesses of all sizes are taking advantage of the convergence of cloud and mobile technology to enhance collaboration and productivity, accommodate different work styles, and reduce costs. Many companies now let employees work from anywhere, provide cloud-based productivity tools so those workers can communicate and collaborate more effectively, and encourage them to use their own devices for work.
In this presentation/discussion we will take a close look at the Team and how it can best fit for your day to day work.
Exchange 2007 End of Life Roadmap
Do you know that April 11 2017 is the date when Exchange 2007 will no longer be supported by Microsoft.
If you haven’t already begun your migration from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2016 or Office 365 now’s the time to start your planning.
What does End of Life mean?
Exchange Server, like almost all Microsoft products, has a support lifecycle during which we provide new features, bug fixes, security fixes, and so on. This lifecycle typically lasts for 10 years from the date of the product’s initial release, and the end of this lifecycle is known as the product’s End of Life. When Exchange 2007 reaches its End of Life on April 11, 2017, Microsoft will no longer provide:
- Technical support for problems that may occur;
- Bug fixes for issues that are discovered and that may impact the stability and usability of the server;
- Security fixes for vulnerabilities that are discovered and that may make the server vulnerable to security breaches;
- Time zone updates.
Your installation of Exchange 2007 will continue to run after this date. However, because of the changes listed above, we strongly recommend that you migrate from Exchange 2007 as soon as possible.
Benefits of upgrading to Exchange 2016

I still have more questions, where do I get more details?
