Hello, and welcome to Configuring Microsoft Defender for Office 365. My name is Thomas Mitchell. I'll be taking you through this course. I'm a Microsoft 365 instructor at Cloud Academy, and I have over 25 years of IT experience, several of those with cloud technologies.

This course is intended for those who wish to learn how to configure protection in Microsoft Defender for Office 365. This is a quick but demo-heavy course. While there will be some lecture time to provide some basic intros and explanations. My goal in this course is to let you watch over my shoulder as I create several protection policies in Microsoft Defender for Office 365. We'll start off with an intro to anti-phishing, anti-malware, and anti-spam options. I'll then show you how to configure policies to protect against all three threats.

After learning how to configure these anti-phishing, anti-malware, and anti-spam policies, you'll learn about Safe Links and Safe Attachments before seeing how to configure them. You'll also get to see a demo that shows you how to enable zero-day malware protection in Microsoft Defender. By the time you finish this course, you should have a good understanding of how to configure various protection options in Microsoft Defender for Office 365.

We'd love to get your feedback on this course, so please give it a rating when you're finished. If you're ready to leave and about configuring protection in Microsoft Defender for Office 365, let's get started.
