Hello All,

I was reading about this tool during an internal discussion on security and thought you might be interested….

You can use Office 365 Secure Score to realize which security best practices your following, and then using the results improve your security using the built-in features provided but that you have not implemented.

The application will analyze your tenant then compare those results against a baseline created by Microsoft engineers.  The score is generated at approx 1am PST everyday after that time a Global Admin or custom admin can go to the portal to view/share the score or look at the results to find a way to improve your score.  Changes you make will take up to 48 hours to discovered by the App, but could take less time as well.

Improving your score by enabling features in your queue is simple, select an action that you want to implement like ‘Use Audit data’.  First select the action to see Microsoft description of the action, then review the threats that will be mitigated.  If you need to understand the action better then click on the Learn More button (See screen shot), after that go thru the steps to implement the action in your tenant.

If you would like to help improve the tool then please go here and leave your ideas.
