One weekday not that long ago, things started out as a normal morning at work.

We also noticed that besides not being able to open files, there were some new readme files in our shared folders. Reviewing the readme files and doing a quick Google search revealed that we'd been hit with ransomware.

Office 365 Backup is Your Responsibility

Did you know that Office 365 does not generate backups that you could actually use to restore lost data or keep emails for archiving purposes?
