Teams Security Configuration

Getting the right security controls in place

Adopting the right set of security controls within Teams allows remote workers to work safer and smarter, while giving Companies confidence in their security posture.

AMTRA will review current controls and settings that are configured within Teams and provide a set of recommendations and changes to secure data and help with data privacy concerns.  Our aim is to gain a comprehensive understanding of Teams current & desired state configuration and set out a plan to identify and remediate any misalignment's with best practice where rationale does not exist for the deviation. We will provide a detailed assessment of your current Teams configuration and deliver a client workshop to understand your requirements for a Teams security configuration.

Teams Governance

Secure Collaboration

Microsoft Teams governance involves defining the people, processes, and structure behind your Teams setup.   An effective Microsoft Teams governance plan can make the difference between an efficiently run collaborative hub and a poorly organized digital wasteland that kills your productivity. 

Where Teams governance issues are a concern, we follow a similar approach to the Teams Security assessment described above, with a focus on any documented usage, retention, data management, data classification, document management and document control policies.

M365 Identity Security

Analyze Security & Stay Compliant

As an M365 integrated service, Microsoft Teams leverages the Azure AD authentication ecosystem common to all M365 services. As account theft remains one of the primary intrusion methods of cloud-based services, it is key that M365 is configured correctly to protect users, their data and the organization while maintaining a balance between security and end user experience disruption.

Our objective is to review the current M365 Identity Security configuration and controls compared to industry best practices.  This will identify any changes desired to ensure users and their data are properly secured and protected, not just within Teams but across all M365 services.

Our M365 Identity Security assessment includes information gathering, using targeted questions and working sessions with relevant stakeholders within the technical and operational teams. AMTRA will help define your current and desired future state for using Teams. The process for the M365 Identity Security review includes the following:

  • Detailed assessment of current M365 Identity protection controls & configuration
  • Client workshops to understand requirements & desired end user experience
M365 Data Security

Classify and protect sensitive information

As organizations move towards cloud enabled services, it becomes more and more important to ensure the appropriate tools and controls are in place to protect the organizations’ data. As data in Microsoft 365 sits outside traditional corporate data center boundaries, awareness and proactive planning for things like data loss protection and prevention of data leakage are increasingly important.

We will review your current Microsoft 365 Data Security configuration and controls compared to industry best practices and review current and desired controls for maintaining the integrity of organizational data.

The Microsoft 365 Data Security assessment includes information gathering, using targeted questions and working sessions with relevant stakeholders within the technical and operational teams. The process for the Microsoft 365 Identity Security review includes:

  • Detailed assessment of current M365 Data Security controls & configuration
  • Client workshops to understand requirements & desired level of data protection

Modern Workplace Protection

Device Management & Protection

AMTRA will review and discuss these additional controls and policies that can be put in place to extend past traditional endpoint protection methodologies to include mobile platforms and devices that are only lightly managed or not managed by IT. These may not align with short term goals but rather components that contribute to your Company's longer-term device management and security strategy.

Our goal is to outline a short-term or longer-term road map of additional technologies and controls that your Company can adopt to augment their overall device management and Microsoft 365 protection strategy to better secure Teams as well as other Microsoft 365 services.

Our Modern Workplace Protection assessment will concentrate on the features and technologies that Microsoft has introduced to enable and protect during an organization’s transition to a modern workplace strategy. These will include features you may already be using, features not currently in use, and protection features that you may be interested in investing in to enhance your overall Microsoft 365 security and protection solution. The process for the Modern Workplace Protection review includes the following

  • Detailed assessment of current Microsoft 365 license usage and features in use
  • Client workshops to understand requirements, strategic roadmap and other on-going organizational initiatives
