Recently, Microsoft announced an update to Conditional Access policies regarding security. Read to learn what will be replacing Security Defaults, and how to turn it on!
Microsoft currently has Baseline Protection Policies in place with Conditional Access in order to protect organizational accounts. Baseline Protections will stop being enforced on February 29th, 2020 and be replaced with Security Defaults. Security Defaults are a set of basic identity security mechanisms recommended by Microsoft. New tenants will automatically have these enabled, but existing tenants will require action. When enabled, these recommendations will automatically be enforced in your organization. Administrators and users will be better protected from common identity-related attacks – but you must be sure to enable these features! View the Microsoft announcement
