How Do You Know if Your Office 365 Subscription is in a Secure State?

Little known to many is a really handy feature recently released by Microsoft called the Secure Score.

Secure Score is a totally different way of managing risk on your Office 365 deployment where by instead of reacting to security alerts sent to you by Microsoft, it lets you proactively track and incrementally improve your Office 365 security.
