Avoid Microsoft Office 365 account from being hacked - Is 2FA sufficient?

Hi guys,

I am not a cyber security expert, but I am using Microsoft Office 365 OneDrive to save some databases that I am using for customer management. The information on it is not sensitive, but still, I want to be responsible with this data.

I just received an advice from the developer I work with that I should use 2FA for Microsoft Office, as this is currently the golden standard.
 
So, my question to you is: If I configure 2FA for my Microsoft Office account, can I avoid being hacked?

Looking forward hearing from you.

Kind regards,
Shanna

    MFA is not a golden ticket to prevent a cyber breach, nothing is that’s why in general us security folks deploy a defence in depth approach to security where multiple things need to coincide together. MFA can certainly go a long way in reducing the likelihood of a breach coupled with a stringent/complex  password that has not been reused for example. 

    Depending on the type of account you have if you Utilise conditional access, one drive for backup folder protection you are well on your way.
