We hear this all the time – unfortunately, that’s simply not true. Here are the most common misconceptions surrounding this topic:
This article is going to focus in on misconception #3. Before diving in, I’d like to start by saying that if you believed misconception #3 before reading this article, don’t feel naïve. M365 backup is confusing – confusing because yes, M365 does have backup, but no, their limited backup will not meet your business needs.
The most simple way to look at this is: Microsoft takes responsibility for backing-up what they need to to be able to provide their service. This leaves their clients responsible for backing up what they do using their service. In other words, Microsoft is responsible for the infrastructure – uptime, regulatory attestations at the infrastructure level, etc. You are responsible for your data – making copies of the data, managing control and regulatory processes for your data , etc.
Examples of the gap:

The best approach is to simply treat M365 like you would treat the data if it were stored onsite. Start by deciding your data protection policy for your business as a whole. Then implement your policy across the board including for your M365 environment – which will more than likely involve additional backup that is incremental to your M365 subscription.
