Is Your Data Safe?

24 07 2015

RBSK has received several calls recently from businesses affected by the Crypto Wall Virus. This type of virus is known as Ransomware which encrypts your data and renders it unreadable. Therefore, it is crucial that you have a data backup and recovery system in place.

There are many steps businesses take to protect themselves from threats and disasters. One very important step is to invest in data backup and recovery services. Protecting your business in the event that anything should happen should be at the top of every business owner’s “To Do” list.

Data backup and recovery ensures that your business is protected. A backup is a representative copy of data at a specific time. The phrase “backup and recovery” usually refers to the transfer of copied files from one location to another, along with the various operations performed on those files.

A good backup strategy is essential for data security. Backup is the last defense against data loss, providing a way to restore original data. There are many advantages to making sure your business is protected from potential threats and disasters.

These benefits include:

  • Protecting you in the event of hardware failure, accidental deletions or disaster;
  • Protecting you against unauthorized changes made by an intruder;
  • Peace of Mind knowing that your business is protected;
  • Protection/Preservation of Clients’ Contact information and files;
  • Easy recovery of data in the unfortunate loss of the business location

With the recent attacks it is important that you have taken the proper steps to protect your data. For more information on protecting your data or to review your current backup solution, please contact the IT Staff of RBSK Partners PC at 812-663-7567.
