Article: Microsoft Secure Score for Office365

Have you looked at the Secure Score for your Office365 tenant? Do you even know what it is? It’s Microsoft’s assessment of your Office365 tenant’s security posture. In other words, does Microsoft think your tenant is configured securely? The score is based on whether or not you’ve configured settings as Microsoft expects.
But what are the questions behind the score? That’s the heart of the matter. It’s possible to get a report that includes the questions/configurations Microsoft is checking. And it’s up to you to decide if those configurations are best for your tenant, your company, your business.
Fulcrum can guide you through a Secure Score assessment. That’s a review of the questions, not the score that will help you decide the best configuration for your tenant. Making changes to your configuration will increase your Secure Score but the number doesn’t always tell the whole story.
