We all know how important data security should be to your organization. Whether it is a global security threat, a rogue employee or a simple user error that opens the door, your company's productivity can skid to a screeching halt. Lately, these scenarios have become inevitable.
Let's examine 3 realistic scenarios and how you can prevent them:
A beverage spill can result in the loss of any unsaved files. Occurring in a panic situation - like the moments before a presentation - and the desperation can lead to insecure ways of trying to get back your data.
Be Prepared - Be able to easily integrate files across different devices & operating systems (like Android and iOS). When one device goes down, another can be swapped to take its place. Consider real-time backup capability to eliminate the stress of losing a critical file. Your latest version of your moment-critical data will be at your fingertips.
Scenario #2 - Please Tell Me You Didn't Open That Email.
It's all over the news. With ransomware outbreaks like "WannaCry" and "Petya data wiper" virus, everyone should be aware. Typically ransomware threats hide within a phishing email. Just one innocent click can unleash a widespread shut down of your business, and other businesses as well. Unprepared and panicking businesses continue to pay the ransom money, so everyone’s data is up for grabs.
Be Prepared - Educating your employees on how to spot these emails. Make sure that your system has the ability to perform a mass rollback of your files and folders to the moment. Be able to fine-tune the rollback to the moment just before the ransomware infection occurred. Verify that the data is available across devices so you you can quickly get back to business as usual. Prevention is cheaper than cure.
