Imagine you’re at the local grocery store drinking from a pre-purchased can of soda while you’re shopping. Now, let’s say you mistakenly toss the soda can into the trash before you had the chance to pay for it. Does this constitute ignorance or theft?

Enter the digital world, where we open a proverbial can of worms for every piece of data you intentionally (or unintentionally) consume, share, or create. Though it’s easy to argue that enjoying soda that’s yet to be purchased is illegal, there’s a more broad definition to what users should or shouldn’t do with sensitive content.

When was the last time you broke an old habit? Whether you used to bite your nails, obsessively scroll through Facebook, or procrastinate until the very last minute, we can all acknowledge that breaking a habit is difficult and tiring—no matter what! In fact, adopting a new habit to replace another makes it a bit easier to let go of the “old way of doing things.”

One of the benefits of moving your organization’s collaboration content to Office 365 is its natural ability to store and create backups of that content. While SharePoint or other collaboration platform administrators were once tasked with creating workflows to store all that content on-premises or even in the cloud, Office 365 just does it. Yet, even Office 365 has its limits. While it will store backups, it only makes a backup every 12 hours and it only stores backups for 14 days. After 14 days, backups are discarded.

With Microsoft’s generous offers of making Office 365 more available to students, many IT administrators expect easier management responsibilities with user licenses and their data. Yet after implementing Office 365 within an educational environment, IT pros need to rethink the way they manage student or faculty data. This is especially important if you’re migrating data and documents from a non-Microsoft system to OneDrive for Business.
