Course Overview Hello everyone. My name is Brian Alderman, and welcome to my course. Configuring, Managing, and Monitoring Microsoft 365 Data. I'm a Microsoft MVP. I'm also an MCT, a Microsoft Certified Trainer, for 23 consecutive years, so lots of training under my belt. I'm an author of four published Microsoft technology books. I speak at several SharePoint and Microsoft 365 conferences around the world, and I'm a trainer consultant at my own company called MicroTechPoint. Microsoft 365 includes data management solutions to help label, audit, and, when necessary, preserve your organization's data. It's important to plan for the management of your data by becoming familiar with the information retention options, data and backup recovery options, ways to monitor how the data is being used, and also how to preserve data for any legal requirements within your organization. This can all be achieved by using retention policies, end‑user backup and recovery, audit policies, audit logs, as well as in‑place holds in eDiscovery cases. In this course, we're going to introduce, explore, and discuss planning and configuring information retention, backing up and restoring data, configuring Microsoft 365 auditing, and preserving legal data in Microsoft 365. By the end of this course, you'll know what needs to be carefully considered to successfully plan for, configure, and monitor data using information retention, as well as auditing capabilities in ways to preserve your organization's data. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with your organization's planning policies, have a general understanding of the common use of your organization's data, and understand the type of data that may require auditing or preservation. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about data management with my Configuring, Managing, and Monitoring Microsoft 365 Data course, available here at Pluralsight.
