The New Year has arrived, which means you’re probably hard at work taking steps to achieve your New Year’s resolutions for your business.
Hopefully, along with your growth goals, you’ve also set goals to improve your plans for disaster recovery in case of a data breach, systemic failure, or ransom attack. If not, you’re not alone, and it’s certainly not too late to start. In fact, oversights and ignorance about the importance of data security is one of the reasons Data Privacy Day is now an international holiday.
Every year on January 28th, the US, Canada, and over 40 European nations celebrate Data Privacy Day. Each year on this day, the National Cyber Security Alliance works to raise awareness about cyber security and promote best practices for privacy and data protection. While their efforts include efforts to educate individuals, a large focus of the initiative is to raise awareness for business owners on the dangers of data breaches in the age of the Internet and social networking.
Just as it’s crucial safety planning to change smoke alarm batteries yearly, Data Privacy Day is a great time to check in on your current security systems to see if there are any vulnerabilities and to find where you can make improvements. It’s also a good time to review your social media settings and change old passwords.
It’s likely that you’ve already taken some security precautions in an attempt to keep your business’ data safe, but it’s also important to have a fail-safe in place. Whether there’s a physical disaster that takes out your servers, like a bad snow storm, or a malicious attack on your data, like a ransomware attack, your business is still at risk and your assets need to be protected. Oftentimes, it’s not just your business’ information, but your clients’ information that can be at risk as well.
Not only can these types of incidents impede your ability to operate smoothly and efficiently, these disasters can be costly as well. Downtime events routinely cost several thousands of dollars an hour for small businesses, or much more, for midsized organizations.
