Planning for Office 365 Disaster Recovery

Microsoft positions Office 365 as an all-in-one solution for office productivity solutions that covers all an organization’s needs. Office 365 is designed to be resilient, and redundant in ways that are supposed to survive any incident without the need for administrators to do much of anything. Is that really true?

In this Redmond TechAdvisor webcast, Nathan O'Bryan (MVP: Office Servers and Services and MCSM: Messaging) will talk about how Office 365 protects your data, and what you can do to prepare for the possible gaps in Microsoft’s protection strategy.

He will answer questions like:

  • Should you backup your Office 365 data?
  • What does Microsoft do to protect your data?
  • How does your disaster recovery plan effect compliance requirements?
