The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) today issued an update to its Microsoft Office 365 security best practices as part of an alert distributed via the US National Cyber Awareness System.

These recommendations were compiled to address Office 365 security configuration errors that can weaken an organization’s otherwise sound security strategy while migrating from on-premise to cloud collaboration solutions during the pandemic.

“As organizations adapt or change their enterprise collaboration capabilities to meet ‘telework’ requirements, many organizations are migrating to Microsoft Office 365 (O365) and other cloud collaboration services,” CISA explains in the AA20-120A alert published today.
