Using online data backups is essential for securing vital data

You would think that after reading about the numerous incidents of data loss, people would make better provisions for safeguarding vital information. But it seems like nobody wants to learn from anyone’s mistakes. It was recently made known that the details of about 150 staff from the Ministry of Defence and Met Office were lost after computer equipment was stolen from a locked car.

The office confirmed that the USB drive, personal digital assistant and laptop which were stolen contained many documents and data related to work and was not encrypted. However the MoD insists that the theft will not compromise national security. A spokesperson also said that there was no public personal information on any of the devices.

This is one of many incidents of data loss. Data loss can be disastrous and measures should be taken to secure important data. This can easily be done through online data backup, which is easy and does not take much time. It is necessary for people to realise that data loss can land many innocent people in problems. Whether the data belongs to the public or the staff, creating an online data backup and encrypting it is important. This can help as a disaster recovery solution in cases of data loss or theft.
