Microsoft 365 Security Year in Review 2018 Newsletter

WOW!! What a year for the Cybersecurity industry.  Some things haven’t changed (breaches are still occurring) but the security solutions continue to evolve and this includes Microsoft 365 Security.  Included in this edition of the newsletter is a compilation of announcements and resources from calendar year 2018 that show the power of the M365 Security platform.  It was an exciting year and suspect that 2019 will be more of the same for Microsoft and its customers.
