Have Your Data and Protect It Too

Did you know that today is Data Privacy and Protection Day?  Yes, it is actually an internationally recognized holiday to raise awareness and promote good data privacy and protection practices.

The holiday started in 2007, recognized in the U.S. as Data Privacy Day, but recognized as Data Protection Day everywhere else.  In 2010, the Online Trust Alliance suggested renaming the day “Data Privacy and Protection Day” to note that while keeping your data private is one thing, there is an altogether different dimension to protection of that data.  More than just protecting it from those who would try to take or exploit your data, it’s the ability to keep your data available and preserved in case of a catastrophic event.  At Connectria, our Information Security Team will implement tools like Intrusion Detection, Intrusion Prevention, Antivirus and other solutions to help ensure that the data is unadulterated by outside influences.  Our Data Protection Team will focus on backups, replication, Offsite Tape Storage, and Disaster Recovery services to ensure that when our customers need their data, it is always there.  Because if your customers can’t get to your data, your business is done!

Here at Connectria, we take the privacy and protection of our customer data (as well as our own) as the core tenant of our services.  Our goal is to make every day Data Privacy and Protection Day…just today we have cake.
