Cloud Services Won’t Protect Your Data

You need to step up. The Microsoft 365 Security Checklist goes over the 21 critical settings that you need to enable to make your cloud as secure as possible.

What Is the Shared Responsibility Model of the Cloud?

Cloud services like Microsoft 365 do as much as they can to protect your data, but they also need to make their product flexible enough to meet a variety of needs across many companies. That is where your configuration comes in and it is under your control. Cloud providers simply can’t ensure your data security because there are too many possible data configurations and variations in each company’s implementation of their product. This is where the Shared Responsibility Model comes into play. 

The Shared Responsibility Model of the cloud simply means that the cloud provider takes some responsibility for your cloud implementation while you (as the company/user) take the rest. Cloud security falls squarely on your shoulders. 

So what now? Get our free Microsoft 365 Security Checklist to help ensure your data is safe in the cloud. This simple and easy checklist outlines the 21 critical settings you need to have for a secure MS 365 environment.
