Office 365Office 365 Security Initiatives

To ensure the security of University email and data several new security features are in the process of being enabled for all UM-System email accounts. 

Safe Links is a feature that scans all inbound email messages and provides verification of all URLs and links.  This provides and extra layer of protection against phishing email.   No action is needed from you to get this additional functionality. 

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) will check for SSNs and other secure information and automatically encrypt outbound messages containing this information such that recipients must use O365 to view the email.  It is expected this will go live in the next couple months.

CortanaWhat is Cortana and Why Is It Sending Me Emails?
