M365 Governance Best Practices for Government

M365 Governance Best Practices for Government

Managing the unique security settings and configurations for your agency’s Microsoft 365 applications and services can stall IT progress. But, the bigger issue is that failure to monitor and enforce these policies across every application, every department, and every service can lead to a weakened security posture.

Unauthorized access, data leaks, misuse of sensitive information, and citizen services and mission disruption can have far-reaching implications.

A breach doesn’t just impact your mission; it creates concern for every constituent that interacts with your environment inside and outside your organization.
