Microsoft Risk Assessments

Most businesses across New Zealand and Australia use Microsoft Office 365 or Azure platform, but that does not mean it has been configured with security in mind.

Many of the essential O365 security and compliance features are initially disabled and the default configuration of Microsoft 365 is geared towards ease-of-deployment and ease-of-use, not security.

And that’s why, these Microsoft Risk Assessments do exactly what the name suggests; identify, assess and manage the risk associated with your Microsoft and Azure environment.


How does the Microsoft 365 Security Review work?

The Microsoft security assessments are designed to assist you in mitigating cloud infrastructure and data breaches, while ensuring adherence to Office 365 security best practices.

They can identify, prioritise, and mitigate the risks associated with a cyber attack by optimising your Microsoft 365 security configuration.

This helps to find a balance between usability and security and tailor configurations to your needs in order to mitigate risks effectively. 

Why AMARU for Microsoft
Risk Assessment?

Our priority is to proactively identify and address risks that could impact your IT infrastructure, data or your customer’s trust.

  • Identify Microsft security gaps within your systems.
  • To ensure that the assessment follows best practices and industry standards, AMARU follows the Centre for Internet Security (CIS) foundations benchmark. This review provides prescriptive guidance for establishing a secure configuration posture for Microsoft 365 running on any operating system.
  • Conduct sessions with relevant stakeholders to review findings, prioritise tasks, and align expectations for optimal security measures.
  • Develop a remediation roadmap based on results from the risk assessment.
  • Collaborate with your team to remediate identified security gaps within your systems.
  • Re-assess your systems to ensure closure of all identified gaps, assuring that your reputation, data, and systems are safeguarded effectively.
