Your data files are the lifeline of your business.  When you have your data and computers working, it makes things so much easier.  But if you lose your data, you might as well close the doors - you're out of business!

You know that feeling you get in your stomach when you’re on an airplane and it encounters turbulence and does a sudden drop?  That only lasts for a moment, but imagine if it lasted for days.  That's the feeling you'll likely have if you lose your data files and don't have backups.

Make sure that all of your critical data files and systems are backed up on a schedule that makes sense (usually nightly). This should be automated.  Make sure your backups are stored on numerous devices in multiple locations. A lot of people make the mistake of storing their backups on a single external hard drive.  That’s not a good idea! External drives can go bad, be stolen, or become corrupt. 

To ensure you’re following best practice when it comes to your backups:

  1. Store multiple backups in multiple locations.  
  2. Check your backup reports daily to ensure automated backups are running.
  3. Attempt to restore data periodically.

Not sure if you have backups?  Know that you do!  Please call us if you aren't sure or if you need help!  Your data is important and backups are critical.

4 Ways to Improve Your Data Security

Is your data secure?

Has your website or email been hacked?

Have you done everything to protect your data security?

Do you need help considering proper recommendations?
tech support Ann Arbor

Security is important!  Hackers and criminals are out there, and are working hard to infect your systems, corrupt your data, and steal your money. Your credit card company is going to start hammering you with PCI security audits, and your insurance company may start asking you to fill out network and computer security questionnaires.  It's a big liability - make sure you’re prepared.

The most important things when it comes to your network security:

  1. Use strong passwords. Don’t use the same password for multiple websites.
  2. Establish internet use guidelines and training.
  3. Have reliable backups that are regularly monitored, rotated, and tested.
  4. Have a maintenance plan for regularly installing updates on all of your computer and network devices.


At Network Services Group, we always make sure our clients and their customers’ information is protected and safe. How would you like your customers to have a worry-free experience? Imagine a world with less security breaches and having your personal information safe from hackers. If you’re unsure about your data security, contact our tech support experts!
