Thanks for all the informative matters on various Microsoft defender technologys. Hope to take on the plushcat as well. @Heike Ritter 

@WimVClapdurp you will need to jump into one (or more) episodes via the links in this post, and answer the question :) Good luck!

I am bit late in joining season 3 but I really love the way Heike Question her guest/experts as to put dots to all viewers curiosity.
Btw, I earned the Defender Ninja Title Last season and for this season, I wish I could get Plushcat :)

Love this show! Email security and AIR are good things to implement!~ #plushcat @Heike Ritter 

I cant get the automatic attack disruption to turn on :(
Hi Tim! There is nothing you have to turn on or do - automated attack disruption works out of the box, once a BEC, ransomware or AiTM attack is detected. Not sure you watched the dedicated episode on this topic: https://youtu.be/b55EwgqGujA

@Heike Ritter  Howdy


I did watch the entire episode, paused and googled during it too. Thanks and I am working with our MS team to see how to get this running. Apparently its needs to have MDO, MDI and possibly other things to be fully integrated to work. Thanks for the great series! Meow!

@Heike Ritter
