Are you a Microsoft 365 subscriber? Do you know that you can enable secure remote working with Microsoft 365? Take the actions below to strengthen security across your users, devices, apps, and data.

1 | Identify users.

Deploy Azure Active Directory and connect to your on-premises directories. Create a single, common identity for each user to provide managed, secure access to all corporate resources.

2 | Manage authentication and safeguard access.

Enable Single Sign-On (SSO) in Azure Active Directory to manage authentication across devices, cloud apps, and on-premises apps. Then set up Multi-Factor Authentication to authenticate user sign-ons through a mobile app, phone call, or SMS.

3 | Protect your identities.

Define security policies to protect individual user identities against account compromise in real-time with Azure Active Directory Identity Protection. Manage, control, and monitor privileged access permissions to protect your organisation with Azure AD Privileged Identity Management.

4 | Set conditional access policies.

Restrict or block user access based on risk, location, device information, apps, and other user behaviors with Conditional Access.

5 | Set up Mobile Device Management.

Deploy Intune to manage and secure company and employee-owned devices (BYOD).

6 | Manage mobile apps.

Deploy Intune App protection policies on all devices in Intune to control how data is used in mobile apps.

7 | Discover Shadow IT.

Discover apps in use, assess risk, identify vulnerabilities, and take action with Microsoft Cloud App Security.

8 | Protect your documents and email.

Configure Azure Information Protection policies to classify, label, and encrypt documents and email. Then configure Office Advanced Threat Protection to protect your email against all known and unknown malicious links and malware. 

9 | Protect your OS.

Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection is built into Windows 10 and provides instant detection and blocking of new and emerging threats.

10 | Detect and investigate security incidents.

Use Azure Advanced Threat Protection to detect suspicious user activity in real-time.
