Companies should not only be examining their own IT infrastructure for potential data loss risks, but also assess their clients in order to properly safeguard essential business information.
Shael Risman, founder and chief executive officer of PACE Technical Services of Toronto, told MSP Mentor that business continuity and the need for effective data recovery measures should not be taken lightly by firms.
“In my experience, most clients view backup and disaster recovery very simply as keeping their data recoverable and [to] eliminate downtime during an emergency,” he stated.
However, Mr Risman added that understanding the vulnerabilities of client IT infrastructure can help firms to better prevent costly and damaging data loss incidents, as any potential weaknesses in security can be highlighted and addressed.
Failing to properly protect business-critical data and sensitive customer records can see firms fail, so it always pays to be fully aware of all systems that will be handling a company’s files.
It is wise to choose a data recovery company who has a track record in recovering from the type of data loss you have experienced.
