Was könnte passieren, wenn etwas schief geht?
What's the worst that could happen. Well, first, you could turn yourself into a potato and not know how to un-potato yourself as happened to one boss using Microsoft Teams (see the story below for a good laugh). Aside from potato-ing yourself, what should you worry about? Microsoft has a decent track record when it comes to keeping its products secure. And it does an OK job being transparent about what data it collects, how it is used and how and when it can be deleted. That being said, it did come out last year that Microsoft was allowing contractors in China to review Skype (also a Microsoft product) calls in an insecure manner. Microsoft apologized and changed its behavior, but it was a good reminder that companies don't always prioritize your privacy over their profits.
