It is essential to create backup policies for laptops and devices given the current trend for a more mobile workforce.
Often people treat smartphones and laptops as storage devices, keeping important calendar dates, files and vital documents on them.
However, the problem comes when devices are lost, stolen or damaged and years' worth of information is lost in one swift move.
To prevent this happening, businesses must have policies in place to regularly back up the corporate information held on devices, even if they belong to the employee.
Up-to-date backups make data recovery much faster and allow businesses to keep going, even when the data lost is critical to continuity.
Employees using their own devices need to be aware that company information stored on it is still the property of their employer so steps must be taken to protect it.
Setting up a clear backup policy for mobile devices and laptops, and communicating this with employees, is a vital step in preventing data loss.
