Employees are using Software as A Service (SAAS) software including Microsoft 365 – Office, Teams, Outlook, SharePoint, OneDrive to handle their daily tasks. Who owns and manages your Microsoft 365 data? In Microsoft’s service agreement, you’ll find this clause: “We recommend that you regularly backup Your Content and Data that you store on the Services or store using Third-Party Apps and Services.” It is clear to point out you have responsibility to manage and own your data.
