Shared channels in Microsoft Teams create collaboration spaces where you can invite people who are not in the team.

Traditionally this has been a not so perfect user experience

The release of shared channels is big news for organisations working together, a new model of external federation that makes it seamless and easy.

In this session you will learn the basics of how to get started

About Daniel Anderson

Every day I get to work in an industry, with people and businesses where I can make a difference in the way everyday work is experienced. I believe in inspiring businesses and individuals to re-evaluate how they operate, communicate, collaborate, and function. I believe in industry disruption and as a Microsoft MVP (Most Valued Professional), I have the experience, platform, and opportunity to do that.

Microsoft MVPs are technology experts who passionately share their knowledge with the community. We are always on the "bleeding edge" and have an unstoppable urge to get our hands on new, exciting technologies. We have very deep knowledge of Microsoft 365 products, services and ecosystem, while also being able to bring together diverse platforms, products and solutions, to solve real world problems to individuals and entire organizations

I am a highly experienced, passionate and driven Microsoft 365 specialist and enjoy helping businesses grow through employee engagement and empowering talent to achieve more with Microsoft 365. I specialise in Microsoft 365, Microsoft Teams, SharePoint, modern workplace, employee engagement, as well as the overarching employee experience.

I have a proven track record in leading technical development and delivery, consulting on productivity optimization, as well as boosting collaboration, business processes, and employee experience. Over the past 20 years, I have helped hundreds of organisations and thousands of individuals plan, architect, develop, implement, and adopt Microsoft Teams, SharePoint and other areas of Microsoft 365 through effective planning, strategic analysis, communication, training and execution and in doing so been able to build my own following and community.

I have also contributed greatly to the wider community by sharing my knowledge into the community through many different platforms.

I believe that I have a particular talent for encouraging open dialogue, which helps everyone feel well informed and comfortable navigating their technology platforms to achieve their desired business outcomes.

With a passion for teaching, technology, business strategy, change management, adoption, process and a keen eye for detail, I enjoy the challenges of bringing people together and translating technical jargon into easy terminology so end users, and businesses can understand and grow together.

Lancefield Megafauna

As some of you may be aware, I have been poking around for some very specific people / job titles in recent weeks on LinkedIn, Sedimentologists, Palaeontologist, archaeologist, cultural officers.

Where I grew up – Lancefield – it is home to an ancient swamp – ~65,000 years old with many large mega fauna bones in the bone bed – some 10,000 individuals are estimated to be under the soil.

In grade 6, I actually visited this area and attended one of the digs.

Check it out at http://www.lancefield.org.au/megafauna

Stay tuned, more news to come!

March Meeting Details

You can register for next month’s meeting at: https://ao365ug15032022.eventbrite.com.au

The agenda for next month’s activities are:

  • 3:00 PM – Login, Arrive, Relax, General chit-chat and networking!
  • 3:15 PM – Welcome, Introductions, Australian Computer Society & Microsoft Ignite / Office 365 Recap – Daniel Brown
  • 3:30 PM – IT Insecurity - Understanding the Threat of Modern Cyber-attacks – Michael Noel (COO)

Organisations today are vastly unprepared for the threat of modern cyber-attacks. At the same time, the attackers are becoming more sophisticated and the amount of resources at their disposal is increasing. It has become a lucrative business to hack, disrupt, and steal intellectual property from organisations of all sizes and in all business sectors.

While the attackers are becoming more sophisticated, organisations have their IT security positioned for threats from the past century, with poor password management techniques, simple ACL based file permissions, and basic firewall and zone-based containment techniques. This makes it easier for attackers to obtain access to critical intellectual property and makes career-ruining disruptions all the more common.

This session focuses on understanding what is currently wrong with IT security practices and how your organisation can change processes, techniques, and tools to provide for a significantly higher level of IT security without necessarily having to deploy expensive tools or obtrusive processes.

What will participants learn/gain/discover if they attend?

  • Understand the pitfalls of current IT Security practices, including myths around password change policies, allowing logins without providing multiple factors, and the proliferation of ‘always-on’ admin rights.
  • Examine how simple changes in IT strategy can greatly improve your overall IT posture, including providing for up to a 99% improvement in the likelihood of a data credential theft.
  • Determine which easy to deploy tools and features which you may already be licensed for can be used to tighten up IT security within an environment, including solutions such as Microsoft Defender for Identity, Azure Sentinel, Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps, next-generation firewalls, and more.

About Michael Noel

Michael Noel is an internationally recognized technology/cybersecurity expert and bestselling author who has spoken on a broad range of topics at over 300 events in over 90 countries around the world. He has authored over twenty major industry books including the bestselling SharePoint Unleashed series. Currently a partner at Convergent Computing (www.cco.com) in the San Francisco Bay Area, Michael's writings and extensive public speaking experience leverage his real-world expertise helping organisations realise value from both on-premises and cloud offerings.

Microsoft Teams–Safe Links

Microsoft Teams now has the ability of using Safe Links. A great idea!

You can enable or disable Safe Links protection for Microsoft Teams in Safe Links policies. Specifically, you use the Select the action for unknown or potentially malicious URLs within Microsoft Teams setting. The recommended value is On.

After you turn on Safe Links protection for Microsoft Teams, URLs in Teams are checked against a list of known malicious links when the protected user clicks the link (time-of-click protection). URLs are not rewritten. If a link is found to be malicious, users will have the following experiences:

  • If the link was clicked in a Teams conversation, group chat, or from channels, the warning page as shown in the screenshot below will appear in the default web browser.
  • If the link was clicked from a pinned tab, the warning page will appear in the Teams interface within that tab. The option to open the link in a web browser is disabled for security reasons.
  • Depending on how the Do not allow users to click through to original URL setting in the policy is configured, the user will or will not be allowed to click through to the original URL (Continue anyway (not recommended) in the screenshot). We recommend that you enable the Do not allow users to click through to original URL setting so users can't click through to the original URL.

Full details can be found here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/security/office-365-security/safe-links?view=o365-worldwide#safe-links-settings-for-microsoft-teams

Internet Explorer 11 Support Ending

Prepare your SharePoint environment for the retirement of Internet Explorer 11 for Microsoft 365 apps and services - SharePoint in Microsoft 365 | Microsoft Docs

Internet Explorer 11 is being retired and support for M365 and O365 is ending on 17th of August, 2021. You need to be ready!

While it does not mean on the 17th, the world will end... Microsoft will not be supporting, updating, fixing or anything with IE11, meaning any new features in any of the 365 family will eventually cease to work, and then one time in the future, just failing to work correctly.

There are many organisations, business, groups and other entities which still have a dependency on IE11 for another applications.

If you have not deployed a modern browser such as Microsoft Edge, now is the time to start to prepare and get it on your task list as eventually, everyone will be affected and need a modern browser to continue to user the 365-product family.

Plan your deployment of Microsoft Edge - Plan your deployment of Microsoft Edge | Microsoft Docs
