offsite or cloud-based data backup will suffice for most small businesses and contractors. It is low-cost and generally very secure. However, it isn’t perfect and requires a degree of oversight.

Today’s blink-of-an-eye pace of information technology demands constant focus. That’s why ETech 7 Inc. holds weekly internal conferences to brainstorm ideas and keep up to date on the latest in IT trends. Some meetings yield new strategies in advance networking; others inform something as simple as a new way to store important passwords. But no matter what, each session reveals something new and exciting from the world of data management and security.
This week’s takeaway: offsite or cloud-based data backup will suffice for most small businesses and contractors. It is low-cost and generally very secure. However, it isn’t perfect and requires a degree of oversight.
That’s because the greatest threat to data security is human error. Machines are only as smart as the humans who program and police them. So if data backup is done on-site and is self-managed, it calls for time: time to screen it, protect passwords, enforce limited access, assign confidentiality, etc.
Of course if time is of the essence or the amounts of data are large and convoluted, there is the offsite backup. Using military-grade encryption, the information is continuously replicated at a secure data center and quickly brought back online in case of a disaster or accidental loss.
“Ongoing monitoring is key in secure data backup,” said Emil Isanov, CEO of ETech 7 Inc. “Whether it’s something that’s done locally or using offsite cloud computing, watching over your data spells the difference between ‘I am up and running!’ and ‘I lost everything!’”
