Microsoft 365 security is a big topic. Focus is important when it comes to getting things done.

On the show this week, Steve's having a major case of FOMO whilst Paul's at the European Collaboration Summit, joining us live from the expo floor via Teams. And as well as the news from #CollabSummit, we discuss the latest improvements to Microsoft Lists, Azure AD and Authenticator, Information Barriers, Teams, Compliance and SharePoint.
Microsoft has released two new features to help Multi-factor authentication for Azure AD accounts work smarter and better. It's possible to implement number matching and additional context for MFA challenges in 30 minutes, and the two increase the security of MFA.

In the second iteration of a two-part series about FIDO2 and passwordless authentication, we walk you through how to facilitate your passwordless deployment for Azure AD identities. Once passwordless authentication is achieved, users can authenticate up to 3x faster and helpdesks should receive fewer requests for password resets, saving your organization time and money.
FIDO is an open industry alliance dedicated to helping the world move away from traditional passwords. In this article, we explore how the different parts of the FIDO architecture work together to make it possible to consider a passwordless future, even for Microsoft 365 users
