UK government in chaos after data loss

Data loss is one of the major problems faced by many organisations worldwide. Legislators in the UK have misplaced disks that contained personal information of 25 million taxpayers. Also there have been several cases reported of data loss in which many top organisations have lost their crucial data.

Recently HMRC also lost the entire database that contained child benefits receipts. According to the information, the data that was lost was protected by a password but it was not in an encrypted form. According to another report, any white collared criminal could easily break these files in seconds. This can cause a major threat to the organisation.

According to the British press there have been three major leaks in HMRC in the past three months. A laptop which had data about 2,000 investors was stolen. Officers also revealed that 41 laptops have been stolen in the past 12 months in HMRC. Also a CD with details of 15,000 Standard Life customers was lost by an agency.

It creates a bad impression and eventually people start losing their faith in the organisation. To secure your data properly, an online data backup service can help a lot. Online data backup is a quick and effective way to store your data efficiently.
