Is your data in Microsoft 365 backed up? Can you recover data from a point in time? Did you know that Microsoft recommends making regular back-ups of your data?
There is a common misconception that as your data is in Microsoft 365 there is no longer a requirement for it to be backed up and protected like it would be if the data was on-premises.
Microsoft like many Software as a Service providers has a shared responsibility model, they are responsible for the infrastructure and availability, but the customer is responsible for their data on these services.
As per the Microsoft Services Agreement https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/servicesagreement, Microsoft states you are responsible for your data and should take regular backups.
Five reasons to backup your data in Microsoft 365
• Protect against human error and accidental deletion
• Protect against malicious deletion
• Ensure legal and regulatory compliance
