Microsoft has been approached for comment.

Orlando Scott-Cowley, cyber security strategist at cloud email company Mimecast, said: “For many UK businesses, email is their most critical IT workload and also highly valued by employees.

“It’s irrational to expect them not to happen again and as UK productivity and critical services increasingly rely on a handful of global cloud providers, we need to ask wider questions about the nation’s business continuity plans.”
