Latest Microsoft Update For Office 365 Customers May Impact Phishing Simulations

Microsoft is currently rolling out a new update to all Office 365 customers which may require a change to your existing whitelisting rules. This update is important to ensure the successful delivery of any simulated phishing emails.

If this change is not applied, there is a risk that MetaPhish emails could be marked as ‘junk’ or may be rejected by your mail server.

What is your favorite eLearning Nano and why?

My favourite Nano title is Secure Video ConferencingIt opened my eyes to vulnerabilities with remote working and how to mitigate riskAs organisations adjusted to the “new” normal due to the impact of the pandemic, this video was, and is still, very relevant. The detail is very interesting and educational, and the message is delivered in a simple and effective manner.
