Securing Office 365 accounts

Alert message sent 04/04/2019 11:50:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police


In December last year the National Cyber Security Centre published an advisory detailing how to protect Office 365 accounts against the kind of credential stealing attacks that we have seen increasing reports of from businesses.

Anyone with an Office 365 account would benefit from acting on the security recommendations in this advisory. From small businesses through to large enterprises, implementing measures such as Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) should be a high priority.

This link to the blog gives a little background on some of these recommendations and introduces important new security guidance published by Microsoft.

We strongly advise that you spend a few minutes reading this information and taking steps to protect your business.

The NCSC website contains a wealth of information and guidance in relation to protecting your business from common cyber threats.  All the advice is freely available and we urge you to make use of this.
