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, Microsoft states you are responsible for your data and should take regular backups.
