Germany bans Microsoft Office 365 in schools


German data protection authorities have ruled that the use of Microsoft Office 365 in schools is not compliant with GDPR, citing a lack of transparency around how and where Microsoft processes and stores student data as well as the potential for third-party access. German federal and state data protection authorities have been looking at how to improve Office 365 for two years but deems changes Microsoft has made insufficient to bring the software into compliance.
