Microsoft 365 is the most targeted platform for cyber criminals due to its global popularity. Since 2019 cyber attacks on this business solution have been steadily increasing, and by the end of last year have accounted for over 70% of the number of all cyber security breach incidents according to the researchers.
Why are Small Businesses Targeted?
They can’t afford dedicated IT staff. And if they can, training and budgets are often inadequate.
Small businesses can’t respond to threats quickly enough or can’t detect them at all.
Many small businesses don’t use cloud services to backup their data offsite.
Employees unknowingly help cyber criminals attack businesses.
Criminals use the small business’ credentials to attack larger targets like suppliers and financial institutions.

Multi-Factor Authentication is an authentication method in which a computer user is granted access only after successfully presenting two or more pieces of evidence such as a password and a code texted to your mobile. Even if your username and password is phished or otherwise disclosed to a cybercriminal, MFA will block a cyber criminals attempt to login to your e-mail or computer.
Self-Service Password Reset gives users the ability to change their password, with no administrator or help desk involvement. If Azure AD locks a user’s account or they forget their password, they can unblock themselves and get back to work. This ability reduces the risk of social engineering cyber attacks as well as loss of productivity.
