For Microsoft Defender for Office 365 and Exchange Online Protection, we are adding support for providing "DKIM verified domain" as the "Sending Infrastructure" within Tenant allow-block lists-Spoofing, so that Security Administrators can better manage Anti-Spoofing activity and override it based on Spoof Intelligence. Currently, what is supported in this field is either the domain from DNS PTR record or /24 IP Subnet. Additionally, being able to specify a 'DKIM verified domain' will help serve scenarios where shared infrastructure provider services are used for sending emails. Since the DKIM domain is unique to each tenant and if it passes verification even when other authentication signals fail, if desired for legitimate business reasons, a spoofed message can still be allowed instead of being blocked.

Description:
We are introducing two new in-product messages that will allow admins to promote the usage of Stream (on SharePoint) within their organization. First, admins will have the option to turn on a small banner message which will appear on the home page of Stream (Classic) to all users. Admins can choose a default message or customize one of their own. The default message states: You're accessing Stream (Classic). To visit the new version of Stream, select the Stream (on SharePoint) button to the right. The default message is localized to all languages. If admins choose to place a custom message, they will need to localize the message to any required languages. Second, when users select "Upload video" from Stream (Classic) a message will appear by default that gives users the option to upload their videos to either Stream (Classic) or Stream (on SharePoint). Should your organization wish to opt-out of this default message, you can raise a support ticket with subject line "Disable upload to Stream (on SharePoint)".

SharePoint: SharePoint File Card for Government clouds

Description:
You can get quick insights on files before you even open them. When you see a file in OneDrive or SharePoint, point to the file, and then wait for the file card to appear. The file card tells you if a file is popular among your peers, how long it might take to read it, and even show the author key points. If you are working on the file with others, the file card will show you recent activities you haven't seen yet, a list of viewers and views, and links to places where you referenced the file in email, meetings, or Teams chats. The file card is only visible to people who have access to the file, so the information on the card is just as secure as your files. Also, what's shown on the file card is personalized to you. For example, the file card shows conversations you took part in, but doesn't show them to anyone who wasn't in that same conversation. The same is true of activity highlights; we'll show that you've been @mentioned, but we won't show that to others when they view the file card.

Title:
Microsoft 365 compliance center: Communication Compliance - Day Zero insights - Recommended policy actions

Description:
Communication Compliance Recommended policy actions helps organizations discover trends that they may not be aware of, like harassment, threats or sharing of sensitive information. Insights for sensitive information types are surfaced automatically through the existing Compliance center data classification service while insights for machine learning classifiers require an organization to have already configured a policy in Communication Compliance. Insights for both sensitive information types and machine learning classifiers are designed to help organizations holistically set up parameters for internal governance by identifying potential areas of risk and determining the type and scope of communication policies to be configured. Recommended policy actions displays the aggregate number of matches per classification type, with none of the insights containing any personally identifiable information. Communication Compliance helps organizations detect explicit code of conduct and regulatory compliance violations, such as harassing or threatening language, sharing of adult content, and inappropriate sharing of sensitive information. Built with privacy by design, usernames are pseudonymized by default, role-based access controls are built in, investigators are explicitly opted in by an admin, and audit logs are in place to help ensure user-level privacy.

Title:
Microsoft 365 compliance center: Advanced eDiscovery - Expanded support to search and export items in SharePoint and OneDrive for Business Recycle Bin (US Government clouds)

Description:
Traditionally, when a site is on hold, the files in the Recycle Bin would be stored in the Preservation Hold library. In cases when a site is not on hold, there is no way to search or export items in the Recycle Bin. The eDiscovery and SharePoint Online teams are making architectural changes that will make the Recycle Bin (both first stage and second stage Recycle Bins) in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business searchable and exportable by eDiscovery Managers. That means organizations can search and export items in the Recycle Bin regardless of whether a site is on hold or not.
