Do you have control of your Microsoft 365 data? Do you have access to all the items you need? The knee-jerk reaction is typically, “Of course I do,” or “Microsoft takes care of it all.”

They are empowering YOU with the responsibility of your data. The misconception that Microsoft fully backs up your data on your behalf is quite common, and without a shift in mindset, could have damaging repercussions when this responsibility is left unattended.
Ultimately, you need to ensure your organization is correctly backing up (and if applicable, archiving) your Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Microsoft Teams data.
