Following a review by Microsoft several recommendations were made to make changes to our Microsoft365 (M365) security to improve our protection, detection and response to security incidents.
On 20 June 2023 we will be introducing the following security measure to Outlook:
Changes to sending OneDrive or SharePoint folders or document links externally
When sending OneDrive or SharePoint folders or document links externally (this excludes documents or folders in Teams/Team chats) you will be asked to provide the name of the person you will be sending them to. Once you have provided the name/email address the recipient will be sent a link which will expire in 30 days (this can be extended if required). This will reduce the security issues around links being forwarded on to unintended recipients or information being available to external contacts when no longer required.
If you have any questions or concerns about these updates, please contact the IT Service Desk on 01202 965515, freephone 0808 196 2332.
