4 tips to make sure your company data is safe
1. Daily backups.
During a backup operation, the data being backed up, the backup is written to a physical backup device. A physical backup device is either a tape drive or an external disk drive. A few things to think about when selecting a backup device are how much space your data takes up now, and later and how many of the same backup devices you would like to have. We recommend at least 5 one for each day of the week that can have more than one backup on them. We also suggest you take at least one backup to you home at least weekly.
2. Confirm the backups
Every so often check to make sure the backups are working. This is critical in the event you will ever need to restore data from the backup devices.
3. UPS battery backup systems
Work without any breaks in power with an uninterrupted power supply. A battery backup supply will keep you working for a short period of time during a power outage and power spikes. A battery backup system will allow you to power down your devices in a timely manner.Plus, a battery backup power supply is designed to help save energy, which can help you save money on your energy bill.
4. Perform a network security audit.
Data should be protected if it is on its own server that has firewalls and strong password security. Periodically you should have your network checked to determine if your antivirus and spamming protection is current to protect against Trojan horses, malware, spoofing, access attacks, denial of service attacks data and eavesdropping, data transmissions threats, data theft and social engineering threats.
