Backups in the Cloud Era

More and more companies are moving to cloud services like Office 365 and G Suite each year, and many of them are under the impression that moving to the cloud means they no longer need to take backups.  The reality is that these services operate under a “Shared Responsibility Model” that puts the onus of ensuring your data and configurations are backed up on you.  This is important not just for the occasional accidental file deletion but also for major breaches and attacks.
