France bans Microsoft 365 for data sharing in US departments


Using cloud services always presents users with some security problems, which are always related to accessing information. All services guarantee privacy, but the truth is that this data is accessible.

Based on this idea, France has now made a historic decision to ban its ministries from using Microsoft 365. The reason is simple and has to do with the possible disclosure of your information to the US government.

Microsoft 365 is prohibited!

It was through a simple internal carousel that the internal management of the numbers communicated the new decision to the French ministries. From that moment on, everyone was banned from using Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365).

This is the French government information systems department and controls access to all these types of services. So of course it has the legitimacy to enforce this restriction that has just been announced.

Afraid to share data with the US

According to this section, Microsoft 365 is “fundamentally inconsistent with the cloud doctrine” and therefore requires public administrators not to use the cloud version. You can use the office software, but not the collaborative cloud solution.

This new regulation is in line with the US cloud law, according to which US companies can request access to data stored in Europe regardless of their location. The French government fears that Microsoft 365 hosted on Azure will lead to data disclosure.

Cloud solutions hosted in France can be used

In addition to the classic office, the solution presented also includes the use of national cloud services or solutions that have received the SecNumCloud label from the National Agency for Information Systems Security.

Interestingly, the tools from Bleu, a company founded by Orange and Capgemini, can be used by public employees. It is based on a framework with French servers in which Microsoft can provide Microsoft 365 services to these employees.
