Do you have a recovery plan in place for your Microsoft 365 data?

Oct 6, 2022 | News





Forty percent of IT staff don’t have a recovery plan in case their Microsoft 365 data is compromised by a ransomware attack, with 25% not even aware that M365 data can be affected by ransomware!

This is a massively scary number of potentially vulnerable businesses as the same report showed 24% of surveyed businesses had been affected by a cyber-attack!

The 2022 Hornet Security report surveyed 2000 IT leaders resulting in these highly concerning numbers!

What is the risk to my business?

It’s easy to believe that all your business data is in the cloud and so it’s all fully protected and safe, but reality is Microsoft are very explicit in their responsibility and offer advice to deploy protection.

VMhosts advise any company to ensure correct security is in place but have a backup and recovery plan in case of a breach.

Nick Fothergill, Solutions Architect at VMhosts commented “Security in the cloud is a partnership. When using M365 that partnership is between Microsoft and the End Customer. Microsoft provides you with security controls and capabilities to help you protect your data and applications and you own your data and identities and the responsibility for protecting them. We take a holistic view to keep customers secure and ensure data can be recovered should an attack occur. It’s not just about buying the latest and greatest software, it’s about taking a whole view on the risk, attack surface and the data to be protected.”
