Do you use Office 365 or Google Docs? Do you know whether it is actually backed up?

The short answer? No…

From the O365 SLA:

“We strive to keep the Services up and running; however, all online services suffer occasional disruptions and outages, and Microsoft is not liable for any disruption or loss you may suffer as a result. In the event of an outage, you may not be able to retrieve Your Content or Data that you’ve stored.

We recommend that you regularly backup Your Content and Data that you store on the Services or store using Third-Party Apps and Services.”

From their Office 365 Security Blog:

“As recommended by the Microsoft Malware Protection Center (MMPC) in their "Backup is the best defense against (Cri)locked files" blog post, you should back up your files on a regular basis by enabling System Restore, using manual syncing methods, or even by manually moving your files to a separate drive. We recommend that your backups are kept in an external, non-mapped or not synced storage.”

And don’t worry…G-Suite has similar recommendations.
