Atos Origin data loss could have been prevented

Atos Origin is a leading international IT company. They provide integrated design, operating and building software for multi-national companies. However, they have recently been in the spotlight for unwelcome and avoidable reasons. The company had to confess that it had lost a data storage device that contained government passwords.

This is not the only organisation to have suffered data loss due to negligence, theft or even because of a system crash. There are many companies who do not realise the importance of having a good data storage and data backup policy.

If Atos Origin would have used online data backup and storage instead of storing the data on a memory stick, the data loss could have been easily prevented.

Memory sticks can be easily lost as they are very small and they can also get corrupted. This is why you cannot rely on them. The same applies to other storage devices like CDs, DVDs and even laptops.
Companies should use online backup services to prevent any loss of data that contains project details, client details and product information. If data is stored online, employees can access it from anywhere using the internet without having to use any unsecure storage devices.
