You can now be heavily fined for losing important data

In a statement made recently, the Justice Secretary, Jack Straw said that the Information Commissioner had been given new powers to fine those in any private company and Whitehall for losing personal confidential information. This step has been taken in an attempt to curb data loss incidents happening all over the UK.

The fine imposed on any individual who recklessly or deliberately loses data can amount to millions of pounds. The Information Commissioner added that the availability of so much confidential information can threaten privacy and security. The number of data loss incidents over the past year has been quite alarming and immediate steps are required to stop these.

It is surprising that companies and other agencies are still managing to misplace vital information about thousands of people when there are so many online and offsite data backup options available. If they are capable of using the best technology to run their business, why then can they not use technology to safeguard personal information?

Online data backup is the safest way to make sure that important information is protected from falling into the wrong hands. Online data backup serves as a disaster recovery solution in data loss events like those that have happened in the recent past.
