Data back-ups in an SME environment

At the end of June it emerged that the Garmin company had fallen victim to a ransom attack. This case dramatically illustrates just how important data back-ups can be.

One of the most frequent causes of data loss, particularly in an SME environment, is a cyber attack similar to the one which Garmin suffered at the end of July caused by ransomware. They very narrowly avoided a total collapse. Meanwhile, their systems are up and running again – but some things apparently didn’t quite go as planned. 

It is not always possible to prevent such an attack. Back-ups to provide for quick recovery of your data as completely as possible constitute one of the crucial basic protection measures an SME should take. This requires the implementation of an effective data back-up process.

You can read up on how to establish such a process, and what you should take into consideration when doing so, in our new article on “Data back-ups in an SME environment”.
