I am trying to determine if it is possible (either via policy/registry etc...) to disable/hide some of the Actions offered within some of the Microsoft 365 Apps for Enterprise search capability. As an organisation when our users are using MS Outlook/Word they are able to enter 'Security' or 'Visual Basic Editor' in the search bar and are presented with an Action which they are able to select. For security reasons we would like to be able to disable these Actions for certain users. 

Can anyone advise if this is possible within these apps and if so, how we can go about this? (We also have an on-premise version of Office 2019 which "suffers" from the same vulnerability.)
