Data protection is a tremendous priority for every single business. Since 2009, it is estimated that there has been a 44% increase in data production, which of course increases the need for secure Canada cloud backup and secure Canada cloud storage.
Protecting the data that is generated for your company is akin to how protective businesses were over who got into their cash registers in the old days. Data is one of the most valuable tools you have. Defined protection for your data, a data recovery plan, and a disaster plan should all be a part of how you do business.
What Needs to Be Protected?
A lot of business owners understand the importance of protecting customer/client data, but that is not where data protection ends. All your data plays a vital role in business continuity, and how your business functions.
Depending on how long you have been in business, you potentially have years of valuable information in digital storage. Planning, budget information, financial information, employee information, company history, decision making information, there is so much information that is valuable to your company.
How much of your data needs to be protected? All of it. Everything that is relative to your business should be guarded against cyber attack, natural disaster, and other events that put that information at risk.
What is Your Disaster Plan?
In the event your data is corrupted, stolen, or is at risk after a natural disaster, what is your plan? Do you have a dependable source for data recovery that will allow your business to continue? You should. A trusted source that offers cloud backup, cloud storage, and data recovery service is your best ally when something goes horribly wrong with your data.
Your Clients/Customers Expect You To Be Prepared
One of the key tenets of building a business is to build trust with customers, clients, and other businesses. The people you do business with expecting that you are fully prepared to deal with a data issue and that you are taking the steps to protect their data, to begin with.
The big question is “are you”? Are you taking the steps to protect data and do you have a plan in place in case something does happen? Betraying clients and customer’s trust by not taking every step you need to you can damage your business reputation beyond repair.
