Microsoft Teams is a transformational tool, with that make sure to spend some time thinking about how you should configure various security, compliance, and governance settings across the platform.
For the past several years I have had the opportunity to transform the way I work, communicate, and collaborate within my team and across various groups internally and externally. At first glance, Microsoft Teams may look like a simple chat client but there are many aspects across data, communication, and collaboration capabilities that can produce a fair amount of data.
The data generated within Microsoft Teams can provide a ton of value for an organization but for a legal, security, and compliance aspect it’s important to spend some time making sure you have Microsoft Teams configured to meet your organization’s needs.
To get started I recommend taking a look at the Microsoft Teams Governance Quick Start Guide. It’s a great place to get started in identifying and preparing your Microsoft Teams environment. As you continue your journey in deploying Microsoft Teams you will want to drill down in the various Microsoft Teams Policies focused on the various elements across the platform.
