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”.
