  1. Illegal data collection Office 365 MAC

    If you install Office 365 for MAC you get the question if you want to share full diagnostic data or basic diagnostic data, but you can’t select no data. According to the EU law this is not allowed (ref. https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=celex%3A32016R0679).

    Of course, you are collecting anonymized data (at least this is what you say), but technically you need an identifier (unique ID) for receiving data. This UID represents the customer and therefore this is personal data. If you really use no UID, there are technical solutions to analyze big data and find a specific information.

    You are allowed to…

  4. Trigger an alert when a user sends more than 30 emails a minute. Would indicate they have been compromised.

    We had someone get their password compromised and the bad guy sent 2000 emails in 45 minutes. If we had this trigger we could have caught it sooner.

  6. Create Search feature will be moved from EAC but permissions will not

    If this feature will be removed from EAC, permissions should be replicated to the Security & compliance module, or admins should be notified ahead of time of doing so, that way there's no disruption or loss of the funcitionality.

  7. Allow Office365 labels to reference external data for retention trigger, e.g. BCS

    In SharePoint we can reference an external data source for a retention trigger, using BCS (Business Connectivity Services). This would allow us to trigger a retention event based on some external event such as the date an employee leaves the company. Apparently this is not possible now with Office365 policies/labels, but I think it would be a very useful feature.

  8. Labels need Order By Setting for UI

    Currently Labels are grouped by retention period. We have many divisions and departments, each with their own different legal nuances. Therefore, our labels are grouped by division. Having the ability to order labels by Alpha would be very helpful

  11. Add What New to S&C Portal

    There should be a What's New page in the Security and Compliance center that clearly lists all of the changes made to this center

  12. threat explorer

    It would be good to be able to view results of Threat Explorer deletion requests or other actions, either in the UI and / or by Powershell. We can view results if we don't switch out of the window, but if we switch out, it's gone.

  14. OneDrive sync client will enable B2BSync

    I have read this update and I think it is not a good idea

    A permanent synchronization with external users is an open door, a pipe in a Tennant and this is not good

    Actually, if a user synchronizes their computer, the decision is business, empresarial, and the computer / device with which it is synchronized must be under the domain of the company and with that security.

    But if OneDrive is synchronized with a user external to the organization, the door must be permanently open, traffic must be permanently available and the security is responsibility of Microsoft. The external…

  16. Dynamics 365 SOC I type II report ran every 6 months.

    For our SOX auditing, we are in need of a Dynamics 365 SOC I Type II report ran every 6 months instead of once a year. Because of our fiscal year end timing and the timing of the current yearly report the external auditors are unable to find comfort int he amount of months currently coverer

  19. Re-enble the Remove from quarantine button

    Until recently the "Remove from quarantine" button was enabled for users and by removing already reviewed spam emails it made the review process so much faster on subsequent visits.

    The IT people at work can not find any way to re-enable the button for ordinary users.

    The reduction in productivity by this recent change is very bad.
