We've reached the end of the course on Microsoft 365 security alerts and reporting. Hopefully by now you feel more comfortable with cybersecurity best practices and recognize the robust functionality of Microsoft security suite. Remember that some of the utilities and apps covered in this course require special licensing, such as Attack Simulator and Cloud App Security. So, you may need to upgrade your own plans before you proceed.

To sum up what we've covered, we use Secure Score to customize and establish a baseline, so we can hold ourselves and the users in our organization to a consistent standard. We can also set up custom policies to automate as much of the alerting, reporting, and remediation process as possible. Improving your cybersecurity posture is a persistent and iterative process of calibrating between the convenience of your users and the strictness of your policies. Too loose of a policy will leave your organization vulnerable to threats. Whereas, too restrictive of a policy can impact productivity and company morale. Please don't forget to review this course and let us know how we can improve your experience in the future. Once again, my name is Aaron Yoon. Thank you so much for joining us for this video course and have a good one.
