Down M365 Compliance Center Information Governance solution update

We are clarifying how users access label policies and retention policies in Microsoft 365 compliance center.

When this will happen


Up Introducing Override Alerts

We’re introducing override alerts for Microsoft Defender for Office 365 Plan 1 and Plan 2. These new system alert policies will enable security admins to receive alerts if a message with a high confidence phish or malware verdict is delivered to a mailbox due to one of the following overrides:

  • Phish delivered due to an IP allow policy
  • Phish delivered due to an ETR override.
  • Phish delivered because a user’s Junk Mail Folder is disabled.
  • Phish not zapped because ZAP is disabled.
  • Malware not zapped because ZAP is disabled.
