Demonstrate Advanced Security Management in your Office 365 dev/test environment


Now that you have built your Office 365 Dev/Test Environment, it’s time to put Office 365 through its paces.

An interesting feature of Office 365 Enterprise E5 is Advanced Security Management, which allows you to create specific policies that monitor for and inform you of suspicious activities in your Office 365 subscription.

For example, one of the most prevalent security issues in organizations is managing administrator-level access, which in the hands of a malicious user or inexperienced administrator can represent a significant threat to your organization’s intellectual property and IT assets. You can periodically scan for who has administrator-level access, but it would be better if you were alerted whenever changes to administrator-level access occur.

To show how Office 365 Enterprise E5 addresses this need, the Advanced Security Management for your Office 365 dev/test environment Test Lab Guide steps you through:

  1. Demonstrating that by default no email alert is sent when one user who is an Office 365 administrator configures another user to be an Office 365 administrator.
  2. Enabling Advanced Security Management and configuring a new policy to send an alert email to the global administrator when there is a change in role.
  3. Demonstrating that the global administrator now gets an alert email when a user who is an Office 365 administrator configures another user to be an Office 365 administrator.

With Advanced Security Management now enabled in your Office 365 Dev/Test Environment, you can create additional policies and experiment further.
