MoD should try online data backup

The personal details of almost 150 staff of the Met Office and the Ministry of Defence are feared lost after the laptop that they were stored on was stolen from a locked car. The data was stored on the laptop, personal digital assistant and the USB drive and since all of this was unencrypted, it is feared to be lost. This incident is hot on the heels of the data loss incidents that took place last November and is similar to numerous data loss incidents happening in the UK almost every day.

This just goes to show how easy it is for data to be lost. With the advantages of technology comes this disadvantage, where years of work could be lost within a matter of seconds. Conventional storage devices like CDs and DVDs can be broken and scratched, rendering them useless. Other storage devices like hard disks and pen drives are also not damage proof and can be broken easily.

In such a case, the internet provides a backup solution. Now you can back up on the internet in ‘online vaults’. This is a simple procedure and requires you to only have a computer and an internet connection. As your data is backed up every day, in case of an unfortunate incident of data loss, all you need is to download the data and you can start again, without losing any data or time.
