Restrict Editing of Office 365 Profile information

We use Office 365, and I have been tasked with implementing a new company policy whereby only the HR department is able to manage the profile/contact info for uses within the organization.  They want to make sure that all user information is current and consistently applied (understandably).  

So, my question is twofold:
1. How do I restrict users from modifying their profile info in O365?
2. How do I give HR staff the ability to modify that information -- without giving them additional permissions to user's accounts?

Thanks Adam and Vasil.  We do not use DirSync, so that is not an issue in our environment.  Browsing the links Adam sent it does look like it could get complicated.  Our environment is not that large, and I'd prefer to stay away from creating that level of complexity.  I think if I can at least restrict users fro modifying there info, then I can just have an admin work with HR to keep the info current.

Adam:  The process outlined in the eightwone.com link would only restrict users, not admins correct?

It *shouldn't* impact Admin (Those rights are assigned using a different role assignment) users from making changes to other users, but they may lose the ability to change their own settings. I would test to make sure, though.
