Digital Data Trumps Cash

Cash used to be King, but for most businesses this is no longer the case. Digital assets and data are the source of convenience as well as security risks. From storing confidential information to archiving business assets, companies today need to be aware of the pro's and con's of all types of storage media (backup tapes, hard drives, etc)

Mitigating the security risks associated with data backup, storage and archiving are of great importance to every company. PR nightmares can happen very quickly if confidential data gets into the wrong hands. Take the time to consider your backup strategy as a whole; from the type of storage media, to the backup process of manual or automated can help you quickly identify risks.

Most importantly, after you have identified data security risks you need to take steps to ensure that your backup strategy can easily adapt to protect your assets.
