Category: APTDISC @ 10:01 am

The new security alert will notify companies when their employees are being targeted by state-sponsored attacks.

Since this Saturday, the new alert service was added to the Microsoft 365 roadmap website.

“Nation state threats are defined as cyber threat activity that originates in a particular country with the apparent intent of furthering national interests. These attacks represent some of the most advanced and persistent threat activity Microsoft tracks.” reads the announcement published by Microsoft. “The Microsoft Threat Intelligence Center follows these threats, builds comprehensive profiles of the activity, and works closely with all Microsoft security teams to implement detections and mitigations to protect our customers. We’re adding an alert to the security portal to alert customers when suspected nation-state activity is detected in the tenant.”
