Office 365 - Using Policy Groups to Manage User Account Policy Compliance

Policy compliance is an integral part of day-to-day business at UW-Madison, and many campus departments must comply with policies specific to the work they do or information they manage. Policy groups via Manifest provide departmental IT administrators with the ability to manage and report on policy compliance for their users in Office 365.

HIPAA: If you believe you or your university work may be influenced by HIPAA and you have questions about the use of policy groups within your organization, please contact your HIPAA Security Coordinator.

If you do not work within the guidelines of HIPAA and you are interested in using policy groups within your organization, please contact the DoIT Help Desk for more information.
