Give users access to the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center

Users need to be assigned permissions in the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center before they can manage any of its security or compliance features. As an Office 365 global admin or member of the OrganizationManagement role group in the Security & Compliance Center, you can give these permissions to users. Users will only be able to manage the security or compliance features that you give them access to.
