Hi Office 365 team,

Everybody that can create a live event is able to see the log files. In these log files details like when a person joined or left the event are captured. Normally we can solve this with a required training and policy but as every Yammer user can potentially create a live event we need to be able to make the log files only accessible by office 365 admins.

Are you aware of this issue? And are there any suggestions and plans to solve this?

The easy way is to let only certain people create Live Events.
"Live event scheduling in Teams enabled (The TeamsMeetingBroadcastPolicy -AllowBroadcastScheduling parameter = True)."  --> give this permission to specific people, False to everyone else.

Only Yammer group admins can create events. That said, if you haven't restricted who can create Yammer groups...
However, you can also restrict who can create live events from Stream admin settings.
