After losing important data, an NHS trust was forced to apologise. The health employee responsible for the data loss had actually lost the memory stick which had information about 6,000 prison patients. In the investigation it was found that the password through which the data inside the memory stick could be accessed was also attached with the memory stick.
The NHS has withdrawn all the memory sticks of workers which are used to store important information as a safety measure to avoid repetition of such unfortunate events.
Many private commercial sectors have to deal with information about innumerable people and it is their responsibility to keep the data safe. Many business organisations can be forced to close down if such important data is lost by them.
The easiest and smartest way to avoid such data loss is by using online data backup. Online data backup is a method of protecting your data via internet. It keeps your data secure in the event of accidents and thefts. Online data backup can be accessed anytime and from anywhere. Moreover, it is cheaper than conventional forms of backup and hence has become immensely popular.
