The threat landscape across the globe has changed dramatically over the past several years with hackers using more sophisticated methods to compromise users and networks alike. At the same time, more and more organizations are enjoying the benefits of cloud computing. But as companies move to the cloud, they are understandably concerned how Office 365 will protect their users and data from being compromised by cybercriminals.
In this course, we will examine the types of threats organizations must deal with daily and provide an overview of the solutions within Office 365 that help organizations detect, protect, and remediate these risks. These solutions include Microsoft Defender for Office 365 and Threat Intelligence, which provide protection against advanced targeted threats in email and Office documents and actionable insights into the global threat landscape, respectively. Solutions also include advanced auditing and alerts and features like Cloud Application Security, which enable security administrators to monitor and remediate risky behaviors and vulnerabilities in their tenant. And we will introduce you to the Secure Score tool, which can help organizations understand their security profile and what they can do to identify risks and vulnerabilities within their tenant.
