    as shown on your screenshot, you can configure it right there. Just select the option "Users can create security groups in Azure portal, API or Powershell" and set it to no. This will not affect M365 Groups because there is another option for it right below.

    @Jeana Bedford Thank you for reaching out to us. The option is there in the above screenshot itself, just toggle from Yes to No to restrict the users from creating security groups, below table summarizes what is the effect on your tenant when you toggle this option from yes to no.




    Let me know if you have any further questions.
