A few weeks ago I’ve turned on Cloud App security feature in my Office 365 Subscription. I was surprised today when i started getting the alerts that there were some attempts made to login as my on my account. In less than two hours there were m15 attempts and they were all outside US and from an unknown device. First I didn’t know where it came from but when I logged on the links provided and I re-called that I did setup some policies a weeks ago.

As you can see below there were three email sent to me whenever there was an attempt made to hack into my account

Email Alerts

And here is the policy matched and alert was triggered

 

The Next Step – Review the alert

The next action was to Review the alert and investigate it. I was brought on to this page

 

What did I configure? It was not enabled by default

As I said above I created a policy while ago and based upon that now I’m getting these alerts

As you can see, in GOVERNANCE I’ve options to select the action.

Pro Tip !

Enable Multi-factor authentication 

 

MS Teams and Controlling External Collaboration

Microsoft Teams, does not need any introduction as there is a lot marketing going on 🙂

Team built on core services are Exchange and SharePoint and Skype too. As soon as you create a new Team for collaboration with you colleagues background services start spinning exchange group mailbox and SharePoint libraries for you and in few minutes you are ready to collaborate in real-time which even allows to make calls from any device (I like it on my iOS).

So what is external collaboration and how to control it?

You can invite external parties to contribute and collaborate in Microsoft Teams or to be specific you can invite them in Channels within your team. If you don’t change the default setting, it open to anyone means anyone can send EMAILS your channels once they know the SMTP ALIAS. So if you don’t like it and if you have some business requirement which may not want to you keep it open for all, this video while show you how to control the EXTERNAL SHARING.

Hi, I’m speaking again after the summer break. This time I’m speaking to NYC Enterprise Collaboration User Group. There is no fee to attend this event but you will need to register the event on meetup. Click the url below.

Businesses of all sizes are taking advantage of the convergence of cloud and mobile technology to enhance collaboration and productivity, accommodate different work styles, and reduce costs. Many companies now let employees work from anywhere, provide cloud-based productivity tools so those workers can communicate and collaborate more effectively, and encourage them to use their own devices for work.

In this presentation/discussion we will take a close look at the Team and how it can best fit for your day to day work.

Microsoft Teams and Office Group Are Not Synced

Imagine a scenario that
You create Microsoft Team, which does the magic of offering full collaboration in no time (I super love it). Microsoft Team is based on Office 365 Group so it does get an email address like this

The beauty of this Group is that you can start sending the emails directly to this group and you can leverage Outlook App to start conversation with the members who are part of the Group. Yes I said GROUP and I didn’t say Team though I created Microsoft Team.

Yes this is what I’m trying to explain, Microsoft Team does not show the conversation which is done using the Group which was created by Team. To start the conversation you need to create a new Chanel, and then either use App or Desktop client or send email directly to that Channel to appear in the Conversation in that particular Team,,,, i know is sounds complicated 🙂 – Is there fix .. not now may I’m sure very soon. 

 

Read my previous blog post why this can (Microsoft Teams) be a No Go in a large enterprise
