The list below details access requirements for the tool to run smoothly:
We will update this list as required, if and when new features are added to the service.
We will answer this question in three parts:
- Organizational security: Only a limited number of people (namely 2) have access to the raw data. Analysis is only possible by the internal analysts who have “need-to-know” access. No data is shared outside of the organization.
- Technical security: Access to the data is fully closed off with encryption and complex passwords, making use of modern security techniques like MFA, SSO and conditional access. Data is shared with consultants through secure encrypted connections and these consultants require the use of MFA at a minimum.
- Procedural security: Only required data for our analysis is transferred through the API connection with the Microsoft tenant environment. No other data is used.
