Back in September we wrote about how web traffic to banks across the globe got hacked by terrorists and how our country’s security when it comes to our MONEY just isn’t up to par. Well now we bring you to another set of circumstances, again in a BANK, where your critical PERSONAL INFORMATION could be in jeopardy.
Last week, it was reported that (6 months ago!) backup tapes by TD Bank were ‘misplaced.’ These tapes included account information such as customer names and Social Security numbers and the incident has affected 260,000 customers-- 35,000 customers in New England alone. This should provide plenty of encouragement to embrace newer data backup software, and update systems for better protection.
One flaw with tape backup solutions is the need for physical transportation and storage, which can result in theft, loss, or other damages from poor storage and environmental issues. Additionally, these solutions are slower to recover and take more time to implement. By switching to a more stable, modern solution such as a Barracuda Backup system, a business can simplify its data protection needs and lower the cost of disaster recovery as well.
Any data loss, whether of primary storage or backups, is unacceptable from a security standpoint, as well as for general productivity. Such events not only put customers in jeopardy, but reflect poorly on the business and cause stress throughout operations. Upgrading minimizes these issues and makes recovery smoother, eliminating the risk that a business will struggle when coming back from disaster.
TBNG Consulting can provide value and security to your business by implementing Barracuda Backup Solutions, which will ensure your data is secure onsite and in a secure cloud, so you don’t have to worry about ‘misplacing’ tape backups and risking the life of your business.
