Work like a Network
Social media platforms are changing the way we communicate and work. Office 365’s enterprise social network, Yammer, helps employees collaborate across departments, locations and business applications. With social media for business, employees can now find and work with each other in ways that were never possible before, breaking down communication hierarchies and silos.
10 Reasons Why You Can Trust Office 365 With Your Data – Part 2
As more and more businesses consider working in the cloud and shifting to Office 365, security and privacy remains top of everybody’s mind. Customers need a ready-to-go productivity solution that is inherently secure and trustworthy and Microsoft has gone out of its way to deliver.
If you’re considering moving to Office 365 but are still uncertain on whether or not your data will be sufficiently protected, we discuss 10 reasons why you have nothing to fear in this two-part blog.
You won’t lose your data when your subscription is over
Once your subscription is over you don’t have to worry about losing your data because Microsoft wont delete all the data in your account at the end of your service term until you have had time to take advantage of the data portability that Office 365 offers.
Your customer data is hosted in region
If bound by legal and regulatory requirements Microsoft will keep your data in the region specified when the subscription is first created.

Multi-factor authentication and hard passwords
Microsoft enforces “hard” or “strong” passwords to increase the security of your data. For those who require more protection you can enable multi-function authentication. This provides an extra layer of security other than just the password.
Managing privacy settings to suit your needs
With Office 365 you will be able to adjust (turn on and off) privacy impacting features to meet your needs. Both administrators and regular users can control what is seen by whom in your organisation.
Contractually committed to these promises
Microsoft is the first major cloud provider to adopt the first international cloud privacy standard developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). This means it is contractually committed to the promises made above with the data processing terms in your volume licensing agreement. Even privacy authorities across Europe approve Microsoft’s cloud with an official stamp so you know your data is safe.
