Hi,

You can migrate security group to Office365 but first you should mail-enable the group and set a display name.

Hi,

Also i have found that when you perform email migration the service can't recognize whether AD groups of On-premises are security groups or distribution groups. Hence it would be great if you can create an empty group in office365 and run a DirSync which will replicate the members from on-premises group to the Office365 group. The same is also suggested on the below link
