Chris Auger from Infocyte and Tyler Smith, a co-founder of Dark Rhino Security, host this episode of Security Confidential and explain how to benchmark against the CIS standards a Microsoft 365 environment and how to remediate the gaps in a simplified manner. The end result is a highly secure Microsoft 365 environment.
