Communication's Directorate Collaboration Coming Soon

Leveraging the features of Microsoft Office 365, the Communications Directorate will be launching a number of Microsoft Office 365 Team spaces to support collaboration within the Communications community.  Microsoft Office 365 Team enables collaboration through file sharing, file repositories, chat messaging, email and other capabilities.  We will be using Teams to become the place to go for all communications information, thought exchange, communications training information, net participation logging and other capabilities and features.

Listed below will be a index of our team sites and channels along with a short description of each and a link to the site.  We will also be pulling back FOUO and other materials that are currently stored in this website and placing them into Teams with a link from this website to the Team location.  This provides user authentication security and will allow us to remove password protection on these materials and still meet OPSEC requirements.
