Security breaches of a Microsoft 365 subscription, including information harvesting and phishing attacks, are typically done by compromising the credentials of a Microsoft 365 global administrator account. Security in the cloud is a partnership between you and Microsoft:

  • Microsoft cloud services are built on a foundation of trust and security. Microsoft provides you with security controls and capabilities to help you protect your data and applications.
  • You own your data and identities and the responsibility for protecting them, the security of your on-premises resources, and the security of cloud components you control.

Microsoft provides capabilities to help protect your organization, but they are effective only if you use them. If you do not use them, you may be vulnerable to attack.

There are relatively few administrative tasks, such as assigning roles to user accounts, that require global administrator privileges. Therefore, instead of using everyday user accounts that have been assigned the global admin role.

Rather than having your global administrator accounts be permanently assigned the global administrator role, you can use Azure AD Privileged Identity Management (PIM) to enable on-demand, just-in-time assignment of the global administrator role when it is needed. Using PIM and this process significantly reduces the amount of time that your global administrator accounts are vulnerable to attack and use by malicious users.
