SPSNYC: Office 365 Security - MacGyver, Ninja or SWAT Team

Thanks to everyone that attended my session at SharePoint Saturday NYC this past weekend. We had a great group in the room and some really good questions.

This presentation was designed to address 3 different roles that may be charged with the responsibility of managing and securing their organization's Office 365 environment:
  • MacGyver - or the IT Team Member that's self-trained, has been handed Office 365 and told to manage and secure it for the organization
  • Ninja - or the Security Expert who is formally trained, knows their stuff when it comes to information security and was given responsibility for securing their organization's Office 365 environment
  • SWAT Team - or the Information Security Team comprised of multiple security experts, with distributed roles and responsibilities

You can find the slides from my presentation here:

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions at all.



  1. Antonio,

    Great presentation at SharePoint Saturday NYC.
    I'm the one who questioned the 90 day maximum retention period for the Unified Audit Log in Office 365.

    It appears that the PowerShell cmdlt auditLogTrimmingRentention parameter = no. of days accepts values up to 2,147,483,647 days, or just over 58796 centuries.
    So a measly value of 7 years or 2520 shouldn't be much.

    It appears to be available with SharePoint 2013 on-premises.

  2. Such a great presentation you have made, and I like the choices of slides that you have chosen for this presentation. Perfect Business presentation.

  3. Wow, cool post. I'd like to write like this too - taking time and real hard work to make a great article... but I put things off too much and never seem to get started. Thanks though. read more
