An Opinion About Security in Microsoft 365
In my opinion, I feel that having content in Microsoft 365 is more secure than being stored on-premises. Based on the initial top-ten list of questions, you OWN your data. So it is still your responsibility for how access to the data is configured (custom permissions, external users, etc).
Note: External users can invite other external users to a site; sometimes without site administrator approval and sometimes when the site does not allow invites to the members group. I mention this so you are aware and can monitor external user access.
I still feel that it is secure in the sense that Microsoft applies best practices in design and operations, including redundancy, resiliency, distributed services, and monitoring. This is not always the case for companies that keep their content on-premises.
What do you think?
