Today, we’re pleased to announce the release of the Microsoft Defender for Office 365 Security Operations Guide.
Security operations (SecOps) teams continuously perform tasks to provide a high-quality, reliable approach to protect, detect, and respond to email and collaboration-related security threats within an organization.
When Microsoft Defender for Office 365 is used, SecOps needs to onboard the new tools and tasks into their existing playbooks and workflows. We often hear this presents a challenge for teams and raises questions, such as: “Where do I start? What actions/tasks should I take? How do I integrate with my existing tools and processes?”
The Microsoft Defender for Office 365 Security Operations Guide provides useful information to answer the above questions. (http://aka.ms/opmdo)
