Outbound Group has been at the forefront of the cyber resilience movement since August, having recently hosted the Cyber Resilience Summit in London. Coinciding with National Cyber Security Awareness Month in October, we are thrilled to introduce our Microsoft 365 Resilience campaign to businesses of all sizes across the UK. This initiative is aimed at providing clarity on the numerous benefits of optimising Microsoft 365 subscriptions and ensuring the security of your data in an age when cyber threats are a constant concern.

Why Microsoft 365 Resilience matters

Microsoft 365 is an exceptional solution, and many businesses are transitioning to it, primarily driven by email services. However, despite the advanced security tools provided by Microsoft, no platform is entirely impervious to cyber threats. There are still potential security gaps and risks that can leave organisations vulnerable. This is precisely why we are launching the Microsoft 365 Resilience campaign to empower business users with enhanced security and data protection.

Understanding Cyber Resilience

Cyber resilience is a broader approach that includes cyber security as a fundamental component but extends to organisational preparedness, response, and recovery. By enhancing the resilience of Microsoft 365, we aim to address the growing pressure on IT leaders who must protect their organisations as they transition to Software as a Service (SaaS). SaaS applications like Microsoft 365 have become prime targets for cyber attacks, such as ransomware, which pose significant challenges to security and IT operations teams.

A shocking statistic from a June 2023 report by *Heidrick & Struggles highlights the immense stress placed on modern-day executives, with 71% of CISOs quitting their jobs due to the burden of cyber threats. This underscores the urgency of addressing cyber resilience in the context of Microsoft 365.

The Shared Responsibility Model

The Shared Responsibility Model is a critical concept for IT leaders and organisations. It provides a clear framework for understanding the division of responsibilities and accountabilities in cloud computing and IT infrastructure management. When combined with solutions from Outbound Group, our Microsoft 365 Resilience campaign offers an enterprise-grade solution that secures your Microsoft 365 data and accelerates recovery from cyber threats. This approach also helps you fulfil your portion of Microsoft’s shared responsibility model. This model defines the responsibilities of both cloud service providers (CSPs) and customers for securing every aspect of the cloud environment, including hardware, infrastructure, endpoints, data, configurations, settings, operating systems, and network among other components.
