Microsoft 365 Lockdown

Microsoft 365 Lockdown

The Covid 19 lockdown has caused an explosion in targeted attacks on SMBs. Hackers are taking advantage of the confusion and new working practices to gain access and cause havoc through the disruption of Malware and the dreaded Ransomware.

As most attacks are being delivered through targeted Phishing and Identity compromise attacks, it is essential to defend against these invasions. To protect against these new attack vectors, it is imperative that you provide a layered approach to protecting your MS 365 platform.

We have started by providing a powerful email security tool and are now working with the balance of our clients to deliver the following. This is our new minimum standards for security tools, with further enhancements coming in the next 3-6 months for all clients.

Multi-Factor Authentication

Passwords and user IDs are notoriously vulnerable and easy to hack. Large scale hacks on Garmin, LinkedIn and Dropbox, among others, have led to user online identities and passwords being hacked and shared on the Dark Web. With this information, hackers can gain access to legitimate systems such as Office 365.

MFA protects the user and their identity from password hacking attempts by using a combination of one-time passwords (OTPs) and a security key – that is generated on a mobile app. This stops the majority of persistent targeted attacks stone dead.

Multi-Factor Authentication

Password Sync

Make employee log-in info easier to manage by synchronising them across platforms. This means that should a staff member leave the business or a password be compromised, removing access to that account will be quick and easy.

Governance and Policy

Microsoft 365 provides a wealth of security and governance tools such as Security Scorecard to help you manage the security of this solution.

Spector provides a policy management and governance solution that allows the administration of Microsoft 365 policies. This allows us to define standards and review them quarterly.
