New security features for your U of T Microsoft 365 account

Dear Colleagues, 

Starting on July 5th, 2021 Information Technology Services (ITS) will apply additional new security features to your University of Toronto Microsoft 365 (M365) account as part of the rollout of Secure U (of T) advanced threat protections. These new features use advanced analytics to proactively identify cyberattacks in order to protect you and your account. 

What new advanced security features will be applied to my account? 

Anti-phishing and impersonation will alert you to possible phishing attempts by displaying safety tips in the body of suspicious emails that you receive. After a tuning period, spoofed messages (where the From address in an email message doesn’t match the domain of the email source) will also automatically be moved to your Junk Email folder.   

What do I need to do to prepare for these new features?  

No action is required from you. These features will be applied to your account automatically. If you have already been enrolled, there will be no impact to your account. 

Additional information regarding these features and what to expect can be found in the IT Service Centre knowledge baseFor questions, please submit a ticket through the Enterprise Service Centre at 

Kind regards, 

Information Security
