How to Prevent Data Loss in Three Simple Steps

When preventing data breaches for a business server or computer network, there are three different phases. The first phase is preventative measures to discourage hackers from gaining access. The second step is to mitigate an existing threat that the server or network may be encountering. The third step is having backup data and a recovery plan to pick up the pieces if a network server or computer network itself is compromised.

One of the most important phases in these three steps is to prevent data loss in the first place. Many times, cybersecurity providers will run tests to see how secure a server or network is. From these tests, preventative measures can be put in place to help close off some of the more vulnerable aspects of a server or computer network. These tests will need to be run periodically to ensure that safety protocols are working as they should. In addition, periodic tests can highlight vulnerabilities that may be exposed to new hacking threats. This will allow new preventative measures to be put in place to keep the network as safe as possible.

In instances where a network is already experiencing an onslaught of threats from hackers, quick action is going to be required. Immediate measures will need to be put into place to eradicate things such as spyware, malware and, most importantly, ransomware which can pose a significant security and financial threat to a business.

Even though preventative and immediate measures can be extremely helpful, it’s important for a business to plan for the worst. This is why having a recovery and a viable data backup plan is invaluable. This will allow a business to recover lost data or to use backup resources in order to limit any downtime that may occur because of data loss.

If your business hasn’t implemented data loss prevention measures, it’s important that these things happen as quickly as possible. You may not think that your business will be a target for hackers, but there’s no predicting what can happen in the future. It’s best to be as protective and as prepared as possible for the probability of a hacker stealing your businesses data.
