Microsoft 365 Security: 9-Day Implementation

Cloud Direct

An engagement that will setup Microsoft 365 with enterprise-level security & compliance policies to provide immediate levels of protection

Security & Compliance Kickstarts are designed for customers adopting Microsoft 365 at speed, configuring a range of security & compliance features from the outset. We identity a core group of users that represents the wider organisation to ensure the policies being rolled-out are fit-for-purpose. This service is ideal for those who want to get off to a quick start with secure, flexible working and want to achieve the following:

  • Deployment of powerful threat detection and analytics
  • Safeguard data from accidental loss
  • Be alerted of potential compliance breaches
  • Get your Microsoft Secure Score off to a the best possible start


Planning workshop

The first day of the service will be conducted as a workshop over Microsoft Teams to firstly run through the security and compliance features to be configured in your Kickstart, before then detailing any modifications to our best-practice policies that you require.


The following security and compliance policies will be configured and rolled-out.
