Is there a way to limit the communication between executives and lower-level staff?

For example, the CEO should not be receiving messages from staff without going through their assistant first. Is there a group policy or messaging limitation for separating certain people from communicating directly or through invite only? 

 

It is not practical to have staff directly contacting executives and scoped directory search does not work for this particular situation.

Hi!

Information Barriers (aka ethical walls) is now in preview

It doesn’t specify regarding specific education SKU’s, but based upon the commercial ones outlined it looks to be the A5 SKU in the future or an add on like Advanced Compliance. I would reach out to Microsoft in a ticket to confirm as it doesn’t state in the articles.

You think it would as education is one of the most important use cases!

Hope that answers your question. As it is preview in the commercial SKU’s it will definitely be coming to EDU.

Best, Chris
