If your organization already uses or is considering using Microsoft Office 365 tools, make time to become familiar with the cautions expressed by Microsoft on their website in the following article Network and migration planning for Office 365.

Note Office 365 Lync users can connect to two different types of meetings:
If the Windows Event Viewer logs an error stating that Lync could not connect securely, because the certificate presented by the server was not trusted, then the destination URL will have to be added to the Websense Content Gateway Incident List or the Web Security SSL Decryption Bypass List.
Review the Category updates that should be permitted if you are using Office 365.
