Next Six Tips to Prevent Data Loss-4 Next

It’s impossible to imagine every scenario in which data can be lost, but you can identify the obvious possibilities. Are tornadoes or earthquakes commonplace in your area? Are there water pipes in the ceiling above your data center? Is it conceivable that a car from a nearby street or freeway could crash through your data center (it happened to one of Logicalis’ clients)? What about internal threats – disgruntled employees? Who has access to your data and what damage could they do? Every scenario imaginable should be explored and resolved.

When you’re thinking about business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR), you know you can’t protect yourself from every disaster - some circumstances are simply unimaginable.  But you can mitigate potential damage by taking a few upfront steps to ensure your data remains safe and secure.  Logicalis, an international provider of integrated information and communications technology (ICT) solutions and services, has developed a checklist of six tips to help prevent data loss.

“The most important thing you can do to mitigate damage in any situation is to know what the true business impact of data loss will be to your organization,” advises Joe Long, director of business continuity and storage solutions for Logicalis.  “And no matter how experienced your IT department is, IT alone cannot define that.  Those answers have to come from the individual business units within your company.  That means, to develop a foolproof plan, you’ve got to get IT and the business units talking to each other.”
