Not able to edit "Strict protection" in the Microsoft 365 Defender portal

Iron Contributor

It is not possible to edit (activate/deactivate) the "Strict protection" in the Microsoft 365 Defender portal > Policies & Rules > Threat Policies > Preset Security Policies. The button is greyed out.
Error message: "The policy named "Recommended Default Policy" or "Recommended Strict Policy" already exists. Please delete HostedContentFilterPolicy first."
