There's no doubt that cybersecurity risks continue to rise. And it can be argued that Microsoft 365 is one of the most important IT systems for many small businesses, with an ever-expanding amount of data in email, Teams, SharePoint, and OneDrive. Yet many small businesses don't understand the cybersecurity posture of their Microsoft 365 environment.

That's where Microsoft Secure Score comes into play. Microsoft Secure Score is a measurement of an organization's security posture, with a higher number indicating more recommended actions taken.
