Looking to do pretty much the same thing here. And yes – MS gives most of it way if 100% cloud – there is a nominal fee per/user for having the software loaded on the actual computer vs. using the browser-based versions.

We migrated to O365 a couple years back and I'm happy to talk about our experience. We had a SBS 2008 server and while we still have local servers, we're using a lot more of O365.
I realize I left off my signature. If there's a bunch of people interested, let me know and I'll circulate a doodle.

I think it would be great to have at least 1hr call just focused on Google v MS, as well as shortfalls especially of each -
This is very helpful Nathan and all contributors. We are planning to migrate to Office 365 next month, though we do have Google G Suite and use Google Docs for collaboration, my team are comfortable with the Exchange and Outlook. Point noted, Nathan about Training, Training ad Training.

HUNGER IS THE WORLD'S GREATEST SOLVABLE PROBLEM
You can enable multifactor authentication which will require users to not only know the password but have access to the user's mobile phone. There are some other things you can do if you are really paranoid but MFA is a good start.

I don't know all the specifics – but as with any laptop etc. password security would be the primary defense – regardless of being in Office 365 or not – such as memorize passwords that auto complete/auto fill for logins. IF those passwords are saved in the browsers or coded in some way – then whomever has access could log in.
Microsoft does allow you to force Multi-Factor Authentication for Office 365 to Office 365 Midsize Business, Enterprise plans, Academic plans, Nonprofit plans, and standalone Office 365 plans, including Exchange Online and SharePoint Online. This will allow organizations with these subscriptions to enable multi-factor authentication for their Office 365 users without requiring any additional purchase or subscription.
Will force users to set up a 2nd user verification methed
You can increase that through use of Azure multi-factor authorization process as well
