M365 Changelog: Microsoft 365 compliance center: Compliance Manager – Alerts and notifications for score changes

MC339116 – Microsoft is rolling out a new capability to enable monitoring and alerting related to Compliance Manager activities in the Microsoft 365 compliance center.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88964.

When this will happen:

Rollout will begin in late March and is expected to be complete by late April.

How this will affect your organization:

This feature will allow admins to set monitoring policies on top of Compliance Manager activities such as score change, improvement action assignment, and evidence upload. A successful policy match will also generate an alert which will allow admins to further investigate.

Once this feature is rolled out, admins will see a default Compliance Manager score change activity detection policy in their portal which will generate periodic alerts regarding compliance score change activity. Admins can opt to turn this policy off and track score changes manually.

What you need to do to prepare:

No action is needed to prepare.

Visit the Microsoft 365 compliance center Compliance Manager to view and disable default policies.
