New Updates to the Office 365 Security Checklist and Guide, including Free eBook

With more years comes more wisdom (and more reader feedback helps)!

As such, it was time to polish up the guide that kicked off this whole journey. This is a big update, and in a much more consumable format, I think. I am even renaming it to “The NEW Office 365 Security Checklist and Guide.”

So what’s new? Well, quite a few things, but namely these two major changes are worth highlighting:

  1. The guide is now split into two sections–the first contains 7 essential security controls you can apply to almost any Office 365 subscription, and the second section contains 7 additional ideas and features that can help you go further with one of those fancier “Microsoft” 365 plans (and a lot of it will work even with Office 365 E5)
  2. Rather than embed PowerShell script blocks into this document–which led to some frustrating user experiences (since copy/paste isn’t always nice to us after conversion from Word > PDF)–I just link to PowerShell scripts in my GitHub repository (otherwise the guide spells out how to accomplish the same in the GUI).

With regard to change #1, I feel strongly that this information should be 100% free to the public, so go grab that ebook at this link, anytime–it is downloadable. Feel free to redistribute it, also.

As well, the entire guide, including the second part, is available as always on GumRoad. Thanks for your continued support of this project.
