With the increasing number of employees working remotely due to the pandemic, computer data security has become a major issue for many companies. This new reality of remote access to the office computer network increases the risk of intrusion and theft or loss of sensitive information for your organization. That’s why choosing a data backup solution shouldn’t be taken lightly!
Every company is exposed to loss of computer data. Employees who are forced to work remotely connect to the server from their home, with their personal computer and WI-FI with varying levels of security. By taking effective backup measures, you will not only protect your business data, but that of your customers as well.
The cloud solution
There are various ways to securely backup your information to prevent data leakage or loss. Cloud security offers an increased level of security that allows companies to better protect their confidential information. It guarantees the confidentiality, security and compliance of all data stored in the cloud.
What are the advantages?
By choosing a secure cloud, your critical business data will remain accessible in the event of a cyberattack, theft, virus, disaster, human error or computer failure. In short, your strategic business information will be protected and your employees can continue to work efficiently, even remotely.
Choose your provider wisely
However, carefully choose your cloud backup provider. Not all cloud service providers offer the same level of Internet security. Typically, it is responsible for securing your infrastructure, as well as protecting your data and applications involved in the cloud. Since private modem connections and personal web access are more or less secure, these are factors that should not be overlooked if your employees are working from home.
If the private Wi-Fi security of your employees is insufficient or flawed, your business could be the target of hacker intrusion, in addition to being the victim of malicious downloads of your data. By choosing a reliable supplier, you will no longer have to worry about backing up your data.
Raise awareness among your employees
Taking the time to educate yourself and your employees about security risks is essential in order to protect your business before data is compromised or lost. Also make sure that your information technology (IT) security policy is rigorously updated and adhered to by your team members. Remember that most data leaks or losses are unintentional and come from within your organization and are mainly due to internal mishandling!
