Manage Fraud and Breach Incidents with Audit Logs in Office Microsoft 365

In terms of cybersecurity, 2017 was a tough year for financial services firms. According to PWC, financial services firms on average experienced a 130% increase in fraud incidents overall, and failures to protect company and customer data led to legislative action in more than 40 states. Many financial services firms are working as fast as they can to close the gaps, but piecing together the right security solutions to protect everything from core infrastructure to tablets in bank branches can be a difficult task. Even best-of-breed approaches can still leave gaps, often because they may not work so well together with other in-house applications, or because they don’t enable security administrators to see everything that’s happening across the environment.

This is where the integrated platform known as Microsoft 365 can make a real difference because it enables organizations to track user activity throughout their cloud services and analyze audit logs to investigate or remediate possible breaches. Microsoft 365 captures user activities such as viewing, downloading, or sharing documents; changing document or account settings; and resetting passwords. These activities are logged across Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, Yammer, Power BI, Azure Active Directory, and more. At the most basic level, audit logs help you view trends to spot ongoing issues and determine whether there is cause for concern. For example, you can see whether a user has multiple failed login attempts and from what devices, or whether a user has downloaded files containing sensitive company information. This information can determine whether the activity is suspicious or a result of user error (e.g., lost passwords, lack of training).

Microsoft 365 can help financial services institutions manage fraud and breach incidents by enabling you to:

  • Track financial advisors on the road – where they are, what device(s) they’re using, and when they’ve logged into the system or attempted to access files on the corporate network from a remote location.
  • Monitor access for private or sensitive financial documents. Access and sharing can be set at the group or user level, which can help prevent employees from having broader access to sensitive client or institutional information. You can also see when someone attempts to access documents without the appropriate permissions.
  • Help ensure compliance. Share information with legal and compliance teams when employees attempt to delete corporate information that’s critical for regulatory or industry compliance.

Outlook for iOS and Android is adding your most requested calendar features

Whether you’re planning your next dinner date or an upcoming meeting with teammates, the Outlook app is there to help you manage and make the most of your day. Today, we are adding several of your most highly requested calendaring features, including the ability to sync your shared calendars to your phone and manage and RSVP to recurring events.

A big part of our prioritization of new features and enhancements comes from the votes and feedback we receive from you on Outlook UserVoice. We thank you all for your feedback and are excited to hear what you think of our new additions!

Here’s a look at what’s new:

Sync shared calendars to Outlook

You will now be able to view and edit shared Office 365 or Outlook.com calendars, just like you can with your own calendars. Better yet, you can also share your own calendars with others and accept sharing invitations easily right from the app.

If you don’t see your shared calendars right now, don’t worry. We are in the process of upgrading existing shared calendars so that they start syncing to Outlook. However, if you just can’t wait and want the new experience immediately, simply re-accept the sharing invitation from Outlook on iOS or Android. Once you do this, your shared calendar will appear. If you cannot find the original calendar sharing invitation, ask the calendar owner to re-share and accept the new invite from Outlook. And voila!

Manage delegate calendars on the go

For those of you who manage someone else’s calendar at work, you’ll now be able to do this from the palm of your hand. Manage your delegates, accept a delegation request, and fully view and edit the delegated calendar all from Outlook on iOS or Android. And when you receive meeting invitations and responses, we will more clearly indicate if they are for your or your manager’s calendar, so you don’t get them confused.

Get your Meetups added directly to your calendar

Following up on our launch of Facebook and Evernote in Outlook on iOS and Android this year, we are releasing support for Meetup—a new Calendar app in Outlook. Meetup brings people together in thousands of cities to do more of what they want to do in life. Now, when you connect your Meetup account to Outlook, you can see your upcoming Meetups directly on your calendar.

Managing your events is even easier

We are bringing the best of what Outlook has to offer on the web and desktop to your phone, so you can make the most of your busy day while on the go.

These updates are available for both iOS and Android:

  • Create events with daily, weekly, monthly or yearly recurrences.
  • RSVP to a single occurrence of a recurring event series (e.g. decline one instance without removing the entire series from your calendar).
  • See your coworkers’ availability when scheduling meetings (available previously on iOS, now available on Android).

These features are now available on iOS, coming soon to Android:

  • Add a message when responding to a meeting invite (e.g. explain why you are declining a meeting invitation.)
  • Set an event as private, to keep the details to yourself when sharing your calendar.
  • Mark your calendar events as Busy, Free, Out of Office, or Tentative.

And there’s even more to come!

Let us know what you think of our new calendar features! If you have other ideas for what would make the calendar experience even better for you, let us know on UserVoice right from Outlook by going to Settings > Help & Feedback > Suggest a Feature.
