Microsoft Secure Score Workshop

Improve your Microsoft Cloud Security posture

Online threats have been on the increase for decades but have spiked in the last few years. In fact, it’s been reported that Cloud-based cyber attacks rose 630% between January and April 20201. And with the uptake in remote working technologies and more organisations beginning their digital transformation journey to save time and streamline their systems, it’s never been a more important time to ensure that your Cloud platform is secure.

During this one-day workshop, Transparity will use the data from the Microsoft Secure Score tool to give you deeper insights into your organisation’s security posture across the Microsoft 365 solutions. Our security experts will work with you to interpret the findings, create a remediation plan and a tailored security roadmap. We will also explore how technologies such as Azure Sentinel and our Managed Security Service can provide a holistic approach to ongoing security improvements.

What is Secure Score?

A Microsoft Secure Score assessment analyses your systems, noting any
potential vulnerabilities and allocating points to them. The concept is simple;
the lower the number at the end of your assessment, the more remediation
needed. You are then given recommendations based on industry best
practices, with steps on how to improve your security posture, increase your
Secure Score and protect your organisation from cyber threats.
Secure Score comes included as part of the Microsoft 365 Security Centre,
found within Microsoft 365 Defender, Defender for Endpoint and Defender
for Office 365. From a centralised dashboard in the relevent security
portal, organisations can continue to monitor and enhance the security of their Microsoft identities, data, apps, devices and
