Microsoft 365 Update:- Microsoft is retiring Security Policy Advisor in the Microsoft 365 Apps admin center

Beginning November 8, 2021, Microsoft will stop supporting Security Policy Advisor. It is recommended that you use the Office cloud policy service.  

Tenants who have not previously established a policy with Security Policy Advisor will have Security Policy Advisor disabled on November 8, 2021. 

Microsoft will automatically start moving existing client policies from Security Policy Advisor to the Office cloud policy service after January 17, 2022. Security Policy Advisor will no longer be available to tenants after the transition is complete. 

It is to be noted that the existing tenants will not be affected by this transition for now, but it is somehow recommended to shift to office cloud policy at the earliest to avoid any issues in policy management.  

Microsoft will migrate your policies for you if you don’t move them yourself during the designated January migration timeframe. Any changes to the security policies that your users are subjected to are not anticipated.
