Security Update

Some security updates for you.

First some recommendations and a request for you to let us know if you’d like them implemented.

  • Office 365 credentials are your user’s skeleton key and should therefore be treated as such.
    • Usernames (UPN) should be kept secret. It’s preferable these are not the same as your email address.
    • Passwords should be complex and secure.
  • Laptops and mobile devices containing data should be encrypted
  • User’s need to be “cyber aware” and trained.
  • Cloud backup is recommended.

Secondly, some changes we’ll be making to our client’s Office365 tenancies

  • Disabling POP and IMAP mailbox access. It’s insecure and outdated. If you’re using this method of mailbox access an alternative needs to be implemented.
  • Audit logs will be enabled on Office 365 – let us know if you would like any reports or alerts settings up

If you have any requests, questions or concerns please do get in touch.
