How much control do you enforce on your Microsoft 365 services?

In this episode of the Microsoft 365 Voice, we discuss controls you should enforce on your Microsoft 365 services. This is a broad topic, and the approach taken needs to reflect your organization’s use cases, risk acceptance stance, industry, and regulatory needs.

Key topics discussed:

  • Should you enable all your M365 services (e.g. email, OneDrive, SharePoint Online, Teams, etc.) at once? We discuss the benefits and drawbacks of a holistic “big bang” rollout versus enabling services individually or in small groups.
  • How do you manage and secure M365 mobile apps? Do you enable mobile app access at the same time you enable browser or desktop applications (e.g. do you roll out Teams for desktop, browser, and mobile simultaneously)? And how will you manage your mobile security?
  • The importance of planning. Understand your organization’s needs, your appetite for control and risk, and how the Microsoft 365 services work together before you build your rollout and enforcement plans.
