GCC High Security Score

I am a one person government contractor who has a GCC High Microsoft subscription. I am self-learning how to set up my security controls in the Microsoft Azure environment to meet the CMMC requirements. I previously had a Microsoft commercial subscription and leveraged the Secure Score in Microsoft Azure's Security Center to help me learn where I could strengthen my security posture. I recently signed up for an Azure Government paid subscription, yet my secure score is only showing a total of 14 of 14 points. The controls covered are scarce: Enable MFA; Manage Access and Permissions; and Implement Security Best Practices. Note: I am entirely cloud based; I have no on premises eqpt.

Questions:
1. Does anyone know how long it takes for Secure Score to populate fully? (I've had the subscription for about 4 days, to include over the weekend.)
2. Does anyone know if Secure Score will ever populate in the GCC High environment?

I look forward to hearing from the community. Thank you!

  1. The secure score should usually take 48 hours to populate. Sometimes it can take three days since the score is calculated once per day around 1AM PST and the refresh time can get calculated in. I see you post this a while ago - did the score ever populate?

  2. The last published update I saw on this said that it was not yet available, but I have seen some customers report receiving a score. I have reached out to the Security Center team to get confirmation on this and will post back as soon as I have an answer.
