As you may know, the Office 365 Secure Score is an indication of how secure your current Office 365 environment is compared to the possible level of security that you can achieve with native features. If your score isn’t as high as you’d like it to be, there are a few things you can do to increase your Office 365 security, which in turn raises your Secure Score. Though having a perfect Secure Score doesn’t mean your organisation can’t be breached, you can mitigate the risk of security breaches considerably by implementing the following steps:

  1. Enable Exchange Online auditing for all users.
