Here are a few Dynamics 365 best practices that you should consider incorporating. 

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Implementing multi-factor authentication for users accessing Dynamics 365 Project Operations is a great way to enhance security. This requires users to provide multiple forms of identification, reducing the risk of unauthorized access. 

User Access Control

Implementing user access control is essential to ensure that only authorized users can access sensitive data within Dynamics 365 Project Operations. Set up role-based access control, granting users the minimum permissions they need to perform their job. 

Regular Backups

Regularly backing up your D365 Project Operations data is crucial during any unexpected disaster. Consider using a third-party solution like FluentPro to automate the process and keep your data secure. 

Limit Access to Sensitive Data

Limit access to sensitive data within Dynamics 365 Project Operations to only users who need it. This protects your data by reducing the risk associated with unauthorized access. 

Data Encryption

Encrypting data stored in Dynamics 365 Project Operations is an important security measure to protect against data breaches. Consider using encryption technologies like SSL and TLS to encrypt data in transit and rest. 

Audit Logging and Reporting 

Audit logging and reporting are essential security components in Dynamics 365 Project Operations. Audit logs can help you track user activity and identify suspicious behavior while reporting tools can provide detailed insights into user activity. 

Following these best practices, you can keep your Dynamics 365 Project Operations secure and protect sensitive information.
