A Look at the Unexpected - Data Protection

At our March Meeting, Joe O'Hara, of Canadian Data Protection, talked about backups. As he pointed out, sooner or later, you WILL lose data. It may be because of hard drive failure, laptop theft, fire, vandalism, virus, or you might inadvertently delete some critical item. A good plan includes a strategy to protect data and enable recovery in the event of disaster.
His clients run the gamut of industry sectors: financial institutions, insurance agencies, tax preparers, accountants, retail operations, consultants, and others... including small home businesses. Joe pointed out that all data is stored in two physical locations, all in Canada.
