About our 365 Small Business Rapid Security Service:



How to help keep your Microsoft account safe and secure

Managing Office 365 security:

The Problem:

Small business leaders generally have absolutely zero interest in cybersecurity until after they are hacked, which can easily cause the business to fail.

One of the biggest areas of attack for hackers is Microsoft 365. As cyber is the biggest threat to your business it’s critical to protect your data from theft.

Our service is designed for businesses whose Office 365 accounts could be compromised who lack a dedicated cyber team. In many cases, they have no security plan.

After a hack you may have restored basic functionality, they require additional support to ensure such incidents do not reoccur. We provide a comprehensive framework and settings adjustments to significantly reduce the likelihood of future breaches in their Microsoft 365 accounts. We are prepared to work alongside their IT team, if you have one, to implement these measures effectively.

The Solution:
We have developed comprehensive standards using industry best practices and our experience in managing Microsoft 365. Microsoft created something called “Security Defaults,” which sounds great, but until recently, it wasn’t activated for most tenants. Most of the crucial settings aren’t configured. So, while Microsoft has to balance security with usability, we can help you ensure that you’re protected our simple guides will ensure your systems do not break when we increase the security!

How Does It Work?
We’ll send you a link to log in. We will then provide you with a short checklist to ensure that we don’t disrupt your work while enhancing security. Once we’re satisfied that everything is in order, we’ll initiate the process, and every 15 minutes, your system will be checked against our best practice standards.

What’s Not Included:
This service is not a comprehensive managed IT service. We are specifically configuring the security settings that should be set. If you need support, if your staff need help setting up an authenticator, or if you need assistance with setting up your domain name, these are all services we can provide as part of our managed service.

If your Microsoft 365 account is compromised, we’ll refund your money. We’ve been supporting businesses like yours since 2006, and cybersecurity is a massive risk. Around 50% of businesses will suffer some kind of cyber incident in the next 12 months. It is not possible to prevent 100% of attacks, we are very confident that your chances of a successful breach is massively reduced.


Do I need to change my IT provider?

No, you don’t need to change your existing provider, but we will need to work with them. It’s even better if they recommend this service. Many IT managers and IT support engineers lack the experience to know the best settings, which is understandable. That’s why we’ve simplified the process with a comprehensive checklist.

Does Microsoft 365 have security?

Yes, however, it need to be configured, and hackers rapidly change their approach, 2-3 years ago using multifactor authentication was enough to protect your account

How do I secure my Microsoft 365?

Microsoft like us works very hard to keep systems secure, but we have more flexibility as we understand our customers better While MS365 is vastly more secure than the old Microsoft Exchange or POP3 servers hackers are getting more and more sophisticated. The security settings only really work if you configure them!

How do I secure Exchange Online?

To secure your Microsoft 365 tenant you can either follow our checklist or buy our managed cyber hardening package designed to massively reduce the chances of your email addresses being hacked

One of my team’s accounts has sent out fake Email Messages – Help”

This is quite common, please call us on 02080995540 and we can discuss the options,

Will this prevent Business Email Compromise (BEC)?

It will only protect your tenant, not your suppliers or customers, which is why we also recommend staff training for all your individual users.

What about Microsoft Defender, Entra, P1, P2, E5 licences or Defender for Office 365?

Feel free to contact us about these, this service is really for smaller businesses looking for a simple easy to implement a cyber-security solution for their unmanaged O365 Tenant

I have enabled MFA / Multifactor Authentication / 2-factor authentication / two-step verification but we still got hacked!

Frustrating isn’t it! This service is designed to put in place the best current practice. Having multi-factor Authentication is absolutely essential but it’s just not sufficient. If you are struggling here, our team will help you deploy the Microsoft Authenticator App for two-step verification on your mobile devices. To the most reluctant team members with our scripts and strategies.

If you are trying to use weaker authentication methods you can also purchase YubiKeys through us to give the highest form of protection.

We only recommend using phishing proof multifactor authentication and all users accounts having a Entra P1 licence to prevent unauthorised access to your accounts. Simply generating security codes no longer prevents hackers accessing your systems and additional verification is needed.

We have strong passwords does that help?

No not really you need long unique passwords and the Microsoft Authenticator on your mobile devices with strong Multi – Factor Authentication configured.


Detecting Malicious Activity

We can often quickly find the source of the hack, or work with Microsoft – in some cases a full audit is required and this is very very expensive to undertake

Recovery Solutions

We very strongly advise ms365 backup which is one of our addon packages

  • Early action is Crucial: Recognising these hints quickly is key to preventing further damage. Ignoring them can mean more harm to your business.
  • Learn More: Check out this discussion on Microsoft 365 hacks for real-life examples and tips.


Key Terminology quick guide

  • Phishing: Deceptive attacks, like disguised enemies.
  • Phishing (Fake Emails):
  • Picture your castle’s guards receiving messages from neighbouring kingdoms. Phishing is when an enemy disguises a message to look like it’s from a friendly kingdom, but it’s actually a trick to open the gates. If the guards fall for it, the enemy can sneak in, steal treasures, or even take control of the castle.
  • MFA: Extra gate for stronger defence.
  • Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
  • Your castle has a main gate (your password), but what if it could have a second gate? That’s MFA. It’s an extra layer of defence, like a drawbridge after the main gate. Without this, if the enemy gets the key to the first gate (your password), nothing else stops them from entering.
  • Hardening: Reinforced castle walls.
  • Hardening
  • Strengthening your castle’s defences – thicker walls, taller towers – is hardening. It makes it tougher for enemies to break in or climb over. Neglecting this leaves you with weak spots that clever invaders can exploit to sneak in or launch attacks.
  • Audit: Expert inspection for vulnerabilities.
  • Audit
  • Consider an audit as an inspection by a wise old sage who checks every corner of your castle for cracks, loose stones, or hidden passages enemies might use. Skipping this could mean missing out on crucial fixes that keep invaders at bay.
  • Exfiltration: Stealthy theft of valuable information.
  • Exfiltration
  • Exfiltration is when thieves, after sneaking into your castle, start taking your gold, jewels, and secrets. It’s quietly losing what’s valuable without realizing until it’s too late. Not preventing it can lead to losing precious resources or secrets to rival kingdoms.
  • GDPR: Royal decrees for data privacy.
  • GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
  • GDPR is a set of royal decrees ensuring every kingdom respects its citizens’ privacy. It’s about protecting the personal information of everyone in your realm. Ignoring these laws can lead to hefty unlimited fines from the high council and loss of trust among your people.
