Nasville, TN, United States, 9th May 2023, King NewsWire – DynamicPacks Technologies collaborates closely with clients on a daily basis to evaluate the best practices for securing Office 365 environments. To assist other organizations, we have compiled a list of the most common security issues related to Office 365 environments and recommendations for mitigating these issues based on the CIS benchmark for Microsoft Office 365 foundation.
In order to establish a secure foundation in the cloud, organizations must update their systems to align with the shared responsibility model and prepare for the evolving cloud landscape and attacks against their systems, integrations, and applications. Our observations show that spamming, phishing, password attacks, malicious apps, and data exfiltration are the most frequent ways in which Office 365 tenants are compromised in real-world environments.
The CIS foundation benchmark recommends approximately 80 configurations across 7 categories, including Account/Authentication, Application Permissions, Data Management, Email Security/Exchange Online, Auditing, Storage, and Mobile Device Management. By implementing these recommendations, organizations can mitigate and prevent the most common attacks. Enabling built-in protections, utilizing additional multi-factor authentication, and regularly monitoring and reviewing reports are crucial to stay ahead of the continuous stream of threats. Detailed information regarding the impact and rationale of these recommendations can be found in the benchmark.
It is important to note that Office 365 security is complex, and the CIS Microsoft 365 Foundations Benchmark serves as a starting point to establish a foundational level of security. It should not be considered an exhaustive list of all possible security configurations and architecture. Each organization must assess their specific situation, workloads, and compliance requirements to tailor their environment accordingly.
To support the CIS Standards for Office 365 Foundation (M365) and Microsoft Azure, we have developed SmartProfiler, a tool specifically designed for this purpose. It is worth mentioning that SmartProfiler offers a more comprehensive set of tests than the CIS Benchmark for Office 365 Foundation, encompassing a total of 138 tests across all relevant categories. While the CIS benchmark provides 87 tests, SmartProfiler’s additional 51 tests ensure comprehensive coverage of every aspect of Office 365. As an experienced provider of Office 365 services, we have collaborated with clients worldwide to develop tests that address Office 365 misconfigurations and common issues.
