Today, the topic of Shared Responsibility is on the table. Let's take a look at it. For the sake of simplicity, we'll count on the Office365/Microsoft365 SaS (Software as a Service) that most of you are familiar with.
Microsoft Responsibilities = Operating the M365 cloud service. To manage this and ensure service availability, Microsoft uses geographic data replication (in case of failure). But replication is not a backup, you can replicate even corrupted data.
Your responsibility = access and control of the data stored in M365. By now you may be thinking, I have data in the cloud - everything is the provider's responsibility. It isn't.
Okay, but there is a recycle bin and a "slide" in OneDrive that allows me to go back. YES you are right, those options are there, but they are limited by the time you can go back.
What about it?
It's simple. BACK UP YOUR CLOUD DATA.
And any tips on how to arrange this, ideally for free ?
