Microsoft Adds a Cybersecurity Tool

The threat of hacking isn’t going anywhere, which means cybersecurity is something you should be paying attention to, even if the thought of two-factor authentication makes your eyes roll back in your head. Thankfully, Microsoft has introduced a tool called Security Score that helps you patch up any security holes that might be in your digital armor.

From Above the Law:

If you are not at your target score, it gives you recommendations for how to increase your cybersecurity. For example, above, you’ll see that in this screen shot, Office 365 has identified 17 possible things I could do to increase security. Clicking on any one of those suggestions gives me an overview of what the suggestion is, and also how much it affects my overall security level. If something would contribute only points to my security, it’s less important than a 50-point item.
