During the first phase, the redirection phase, devices will be progressively redirected from IE to Microsoft Edge over the next few months after June 15, 2022. Following industry best practices, this progressive redirection will be quality-driven to ensure a smooth IE11 retirement for you and your organization. To minimize the level of potential business disruption within an organization at one time, not all devices will be redirected at the same time. This approach is designed so that you can quickly identify and resolve any potential issues, such as missed sites, before all devices within your organization are redirected. The intent is for the redirection phase for all devices with Windows platforms that are in-scope for IE retirement to be complete in the next few months.</SPAN></P> <P style="margin: 0in 0in 0in .5in;"><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P style="margin: 0in 0in 0in .5in;"><SPAN>Note: Windows Updates are not used to redirect devices during the redirection phase. We do not recommend skipping Windows Updates as they contain critical operating system security patches.</SPAN></P> <P style="margin: 0in 0in 0in .5in;"><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P style="margin: 0in 0in 0in .5in;"><SPAN>The second phase of retirement is the Windows Update phase. After the redirection phase completes, IE will be permanently disabled through a future Windows Update on all devices with Windows platforms that are in-scope for IE retirement. It will follow the standard Windows update process as part of an optional preview “C” release followed by a “B” Patch Tuesday release. Given the cumulative nature of Windows Updates, IE disablement will persist in subsequent Windows Updates.</SPAN></P> <P style="margin: 0in 0in 0in .5in;"><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P style="margin: 0in 0in 0in .5in;"><SPAN>Note: As first seen with the Windows 10 January 2022 C "Preview" release, IE11 has an in-product banner notifying users of the upcoming retirement. This only shows on Windows versions affected by IE11 retirement. To configure, use the "Hide Internet Explorer 11 Application Retirement Notification" group policy found in the Local Group Policy Editor under Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer.</SPAN></P> <P style="margin: 0in 0in 0in .5in;"><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P style="margin: 0in 0in 0in .5in;"><STRONG><SPAN>What you need to do to take action:</SPAN></STRONG></P> <P style="margin: 0in 0in 0in .5in;"><SPAN>To take action, we recommend setting up Microsoft Edge in your organization.

There is a need to modernize compliance to factor for dynamic changes in cloud workloads while monitoring configuration drift and leveraging machine-driven automation for remediation. The Microsoft Sentinel: NIST SP 800-53 Solution enables compliance teams, architects, SecOps analysts, and consultants to understand their cloud security posture related to Special Publication (SP) 800-53 guidance issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). This solution is designed to augment staffing through automation, visibility, assessment, monitoring, and remediation. Content features include an intuitive user interface, policy-based assessments, control cards for guiding alignment with control requirements, alerting rules to monitor configuration drift, and playbook automations for response. The power of this solution lies in its ability to aggregate at big data scale across first- and third-party products to provide maximum visibility into cloud, hybrid, and multi-cloud workloads.</SPAN><SPAN data-ccp-props="{&quot;134233117&quot;:true,&quot;134233118&quot;:true}">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="TJBanasik_0-1652979529843.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/373224i9CBEA2B12FB7EB7A/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="TJBanasik_0-1652979529843.png" alt="TJBanasik_0-1652979529843.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN data-ccp-props="{&quot;134233117&quot;:true,&quot;134233118&quot;:true}">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN data-contrast="auto"> </SPAN><SPAN data-ccp-props="{}">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><STRONG><SPAN data-contrast="none">What is NIST SP 800-53?</SPAN></STRONG><SPAN data-ccp-props="{}">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN data-contrast="auto">NIST SP 800-53 provides a catalog of security and privacy controls for federal information systems and organizations and a process for selecting controls to protect organizational operations.

These policies may help you Assess Compliance with the control; however, there often is not a one-to-one or complete match between a control and one or more policies. As such, Compliant in Azure Policy refers only to the policy definitions themselves; this doesn't ensure you're fully compliant with all requirements of a control. In addition, the compliance standard includes controls that aren't addressed by any Azure Policy definitions at this time. Therefore, compliance in Azure Policy is only a partial view of your overall compliance status. The associations between compliance domains, controls, and Azure Policy definitions for this compliance standard may change over time. Customer experience will vary by user and some panels may require additional configurations for operation. Recommendations do not imply coverage of respective controls as they are often one of several courses of action for approaching requirements which is unique to each customer. Recommendations should be considered a starting point for planning full or partial coverage of respective requirements. This workbook does not address all controls within the framework. It should be considered a supplemental tool to gain visibility of technical controls within cloud, multi-cloud, and hybrid networks.

CMMC is a compliance requirement of the defense industrial base (DIB), for the US government to determine if your routine business processes protect controlled unclassified information (CUI). For many organizations, this is a time to innovate, modernize systems, and enhance resiliency so your users can securely access business and productivity tools.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN data-ccp-props="{&quot;201341983&quot;:0,&quot;335559739&quot;:160,&quot;335559740&quot;:259}">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN data-contrast="auto">An estimated 300,000+ companies are impacted by CMMC, of which 40,000 will require a third-party audit of business processes and how you protect CUI. Following rulemaking starting in 2023, defense contractors will need to have a CMMC certification at one of three levels to be awarded a contract.&nbsp;&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN data-ccp-props="{&quot;201341983&quot;:0,&quot;335559739&quot;:160,&quot;335559740&quot;:259}">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN data-contrast="auto">Today, many defense contractors use Microsoft technology as part of their IT system. To help the DIB and organizations pursuing CMMC, we curated a set of training modules from Microsoft Learn. Microsoft Learn is a free, interactive training platform for customers and partners who are new to Microsoft technology or looking to enhance their knowledge. Microsoft Learn has hundreds of hours of content to help business leaders, managers and analysts better understand how to leverage Microsoft.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN data-ccp-props="{&quot;201341983&quot;:0,&quot;335559739&quot;:160,&quot;335559740&quot;:259}">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN data-ccp-props="{&quot;201341983&quot;:0,&quot;335559739&quot;:160,&quot;335559740&quot;:259}"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="CMMCpage.gif" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/372447i295C662A19DD0EDA/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="CMMCpage.gif" alt="CMMCpage.gif" /></span></SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><STRONG><SPAN data-contrast="none">“Getting started with Microsoft for CMMC”</SPAN></STRONG></A><SPAN data-contrast="auto"> on Microsoft Learn is a curated collection designed to help customers and partners understand the capabilities of Microsoft's platform and solutions.
