Why Buy this book?

With Microsoft's emphasis and focus on Office 365, it seems only natural that we should also look to focus our efforts on learning how to best use PowerShell to manage it.  In particular, the Security and Compliance Center (SCC), deserves a more focused look.  This is because the SCC now affects many workloads in Office 365 - Exchange Online, Teams, One Drive, etc.  

The book uses real world examples, tips and tricks to walk the reader through how to use PowerShell and the SCC.  Some topics covered have little to no PowerShell documentation or PowerShell Help - 'Labels' are a particularly good example of this.  The book covers a wide a range of topics , including all of the tabs in the SCC.  Be Prepared to learn as there are sections of the SCC that are not exposed, like Information Barriers.

This book is aimed at those who know some PowerShell or are looking for ways to make their scripts better as well as help you become more confident in managing the Security and Compliance Center with PowerShell.
