Data Loss not Data Breach: What is the difference?
A data loss can be caused by the following: Hardware failure or System Glitch, Human error, Software Corruption, Computer Viruses and Scams, or a Natural disaster.
A data breach causes data loss and is associated with your systems being compromised on purpose. Where a business becomes aware of a data breach and certain conditions are met then by law the breach needs to be reported.
Hardware: – Hard disk failure is the most common cause of data loss. Our partner Ontrack conducted research in Australia that shows that 56% of all data loss is related to HDD crashes. Human error accounts for 26% – accidentally deleting files or perhaps physical damage to storage devices.
As a business in Australia your obligations for a data breach is covered by the Office of the Australian Information Privacy Commissioner. A data breach is a data loss. In the six months ending December 2019, 64% of all data breaches were the result of malicious or criminal activity. This means your data backup strategy must be considered with your cyber security strategy.
Of course, you may have read the above information too late –
We do Data Recovery for business users from servers, computers, phones, USB’s, memory sticks, and external hard drives.
Our ability to recovery data is largely dependent on the cause of Data Loss.
Hard Drive crashes -recovery will depend on the nature of the damage, if physically damaged it may need to be sent to our data recovery partner recover lab.
Human Error – generally, data deleted accidentally or overwritten can be retrieved using our recovery software.
Software Corruption – data can generally be retrieved if the corruption is small in nature, however it may need to be sent to our data recovery partner recover lab.
Computer Virus – if the virus can be isolated and eliminated, we can generally get data back, it is however system dependent.
Natural Disasters – generally these involved water damaged hardware and need to be sent to our data recovery partner recover lab.
If your data loss involves an insurance claim, we can help with a quote and letter of authority for your insurance company.
Depending on the extent of damage initially we will assess and conduct an initial non labs data recover service which we find more cost effective. If our attempts fail, then we will refer your work to our specialist data recovery partner Ontrack.
