Every time data breaches make the news, business owners go on high alert. But a security issue can occur at any time. In fact, small businesses are often more vulnerable than much larger ones due to insufficient resources and a lack of understanding of the many dangers. Complicating matters is the fact that small business owners are often overloaded with so many other tasks, they don t have time to investigate the measures they need to take to protect themselves.
As a result, businesses have recently begun working with experts, outsourcing data to the cloud, where it can be protected by experts. But what about the physical dangers? A stolen computer or laptop may contain sensitive data that can sink your company if it falls into the wrong hands. One problem many businesses run into, however, is in recycling old computer equipment and servers. While they try to do the responsible thing and recycle it, it s important to know that the hard drives inside each piece of equipment can contain retrievable data, even if they ve been wiped using standard erasure software.
