Data Preservation Best Practices

In the digital age, the safety and security of our data is critical. To ensure you are covered, a three-pronged approach of encrypting, backing up and storing data is the best way to protect yourself against data loss.

Encrypt: Encrypting confidential files is the first step to keeping your data secure. Encryption converts data into a code, making it unreadable to unauthorised individuals. This shields sensitive information from potential theft and breaches, preserving its integrity.

Backup: Regular backups are crucial to data preservation. Making a backup of your hard drive at least once a week ensures that your data remains intact even in the face of hardware failures, accidents, or cyberattacks. It acts as a safety net, allowing you to retrieve lost data swiftly. We also offer backup services.

Store: The location of your backups is as crucial as the backups themselves. Storing backups away from your computer, preferably in a separate building, safeguards against events like fires or theft that might affect both your original data and its backup. Additionally, maintaining a separate flash drive with critical data in another location serves as a failsafe. Ask about our offsite backup storage.

In the unfortunate event of data loss, seeking assistance from data recovery experts is crucial. If you're in Namibia, our team is dedicated to restoring your valuable information.
