Online data backups can help avoid another HMRC incident

The HMRC incident was one of the biggest data breaches ever witnessed. The unfortunate data loss incident occurred around this time last year and ever since there have been many cases of data loss popping up ever so frequently. HMRC admitted to losing two discs that contained records of over 20 million people.

It was also made known that the information was unencrypted and the incident led to the resignation of the head of HMRC, Paul Gray. Since this data loss incident surfaced, there have been many more such cases and these events are liable to put many people at risk. Very soon the public may even lose faith in government agencies, if they have not already.

What is surprising about these occurrences is that even with the availability of technology to secure data, no one wants to use it. The various online and off site data backups can greatly reduce data loss events and people should be made aware of this. The whole purpose of online data backup is to safeguard important information so that people are not subjected to problems in the event of data thefts or loss. Whether it is a company or a government agency, online data backups can protect data and ensure business continuity.
