Data Dangers Increasing in Latin America and the Caribbean
According to a report cited by Microsoft, “Cybersecurity: Are We Ready in Latin America and the Caribbean?” authored by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB); Organization of American States, Latin America was extremely vulnerable to potentially devastating cyber-attacks.*
Businesses must protect their data and have the ability to quickly restore their data should it be deleted, encrypted or corrupted. Data threats to businesses continue to grow and include accidental or deliberate deletion, ransomware, phishing attacks, employee theft and other unexpected data loss events.
Why Office 365 Backup is Needed
You may be asking — why do I need backup? Microsoft already backs everything up for me.
This is not true, here’s why:
- Microsoft is only responsible for the Office 365 infrastructure, not the data.
- With Office 365, it’s your data. You own and control it. You are responsible for it. Period.
- Office 365 wasn’t built to be a comprehensive data backup and archiving solution.
Even Microsoft’s website says they take care of the infrastructure, but the data remains the customer’s responsibility.
It’s not just your email at risk of data loss. It’s your email attachments, calendar, tasks as well. Plus, your SharePoint files, OneDrive files, Groups and Teams files too that are at risk.
