SharePoint Online is provided through 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption. So it is very much secure to access anywhere.

SharePoint Online is continuously monitored for unusual or suspicious activity.

Microsoft regularly assesses the SharePoint Online infrastructure to ensure compliance policies and antivirus signatures are available.

Configuration settings and security updates include the following:
- Achieved ISO 27001 certification

- Completed Statement on Audit Status (SAS) 70 Type I and II audits

- Added controls that assist customers in complying with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

-Achieved the European Union (EU) Safe Harbor seal
