DATA TRANSFER AND BACKUP


Cybersecurity strategy: Hackers have one, do you?

Weaponized malware, hackers holding data hostage, social engineering and spear phishing campaigns — those are just the basic attack types common today. Small business or large corporations are equally vulnerable and must safeguard against the next big threat to data when there’s literally no way to know what it will look like or when it might come.

Data backup is crucial for protecting your business’s continuity. If your only backup is on a single desktop/laptop computer or mobile device and it’s lost or stolen, your business data is gone. And having paper copies of business data isn’t adequate data protection; what if your business premises burn to the ground or experience severe flooding? Once again the data you need to carry on your business could be irretrievably lost.

ALL DATA IS A TARGET

Whether you’re a dentist or an attorney, working at a Fortune 500 company or building up a mom-and-pop shop, your data will always remain vulnerable to threats. Viruses, accidents, and punk teenagers halfway across the world are not picky. They will attack any business of any type, and they will do it to fulfill a vendetta, acquire sensitive data, or simply because they can. In fact, 43% of all cyber attacks specifically target small businesses.

LOSING DATA IS EASY

The thing about data loss is that it’s not always the direct result of a tornado or massive flooding (like most people tend to think). Instead, over half of all data loss incidents are the result of human error or hardware malfunctions — both of which are hard to prevent. In other words, data is incredibly easy to lose, and there are a variety of “everyday” situations that can make this happen.

DOWNTIME IS NOT FUN

When you lose data, one thing is certain: downtime. Without your data, it will be incredibly hard for employees to work. Imagine how difficult it would be to work without your mission-critical business applications or how much harder it would be to handle clients if you don’t have any contact information or account status. In these situations, your business will be forced to do whatever it can to recover lost data. If you don’t have a recovery solution, then your restoration efforts will become rebuilding efforts, starting from scratch to recreate whatever was lost.

SOME DATA IS INVALUABLE

Again, if you lose data without a recovery option, then you’ll be forced to start over with your data. However, some data simply cannot be recovered; it’s irreplaceable. And when this happens, it will be much harder for your business to recover 100% of the information you worked so hard to gather, create and deliver.

YOUR REPUTATION IS IMPORTANT

Imagine for a minute that you do lose irreplaceable data. How would you feel trying to explain this to your clients? Would you be embarrassed? Most likely. And how exactly do you think your clients would feel? Probably a little irritated and a lot nervous. Maybe even annoyed enough to never do business with you again. Losing data will affect the way your clients (and the public in general) view your business and their relationship with you. They will think you lack professionalism, and they will feel as if you aren’t capable of protecting their data.
