How does a Microsoft 365 security audit work?
The methodology that we recommend for carrying out a CGTI audit adapts to the size and realities of organizations. We are there from planning the audit, to presenting a detailed report, to collecting data and analyzing your IT systems.
Our security audit experts will meet with your organization’s employee(s) to plan the audit together. They will then ensure that they have all the access they need to perform the audit.
We will start this audit with a general review of the governance and management of information technology within your organization, as well as an analysis of the configurations in place.
Our experts will continue the audit with tests to identify potential security vulnerabilities within your Microsoft 365 environment.
The report will contain the various analyses and findings identified throughout the audit. The report will describe all the issues raised by our experts, as well as a series of recommendations to improve the security of your Microsoft 365 environment.
You will receive a report with images to simplify understanding. Recommendations will be issued to prioritize, target and direct improvement opportunities.

Why carry out an audit of the structure of the Microsoft 365 collaborative environment and entrust it to an external partner?
Auditing the structure of the Microsoft 365 collaborative environment consists of evaluating the M365 group structure including SharePoint sites, Teams teams and related applications currently in use in the administration console. The objective is to deliver an external opinion on the validation of the good practices in place and to detect the sectors requiring potential improvements.

The audit is divided into two parts, namely the review of M365 governance and current configurations, then the meeting of targeted users to understand the actual operation of applications in the M365 environment as well as their challenges and irritants.

The presentation of our observations, findings and recommendations will be in the form of a report followed by an open discussion with you.
