Whether you are in need of data recovery or a forensic analysis, from an employee investigation to a breach, the same principles apply. When a data breach event occurs, your company only has a small time frame to gather evidence. Download our step-by-step Breach and Incident Response to do list to help guide you through the process.
How is data lost?
Viruses, Hackers, & Spyware
Computer viruses, hackers, and spyware can wreak havoc on a computer. Viruses are getting more dangerous; spyware is getting malicious, and hackers more brazen.
Hard Drive & Hardware Failures
While hard drives are constantly getting better, faster, and cheaper all while storing more data, they are still extremely susceptible to failure. In fact, all hard drives will eventually fail, as they are not designed to last forever. Unfortunately, you never know when they will fail. Power surges, electrostatic shocks, circuit board shorts, and head crashes can all wipe out the data that is stored on your hard drives.
Natural Disasters & Theft
You probably have insurance that will protect your physical assets from disasters such as fires, floods, hurricanes, and earthquakes. But, what is protecting your data? Anything that can damage your home can destroy your computers and the information that they store. On top of natural disasters, we live in a world today where terrorism and theft must be considered.
Even the greatest of people aren’t perfect. Sooner or later, and by accident, an important document may get deleted, overwritten, or corrupted.
Preserving your data
What would happen if you lost all your data? Could you recreate it? Even if you could recreate it, how much time would this process take? How much money would it cost you?
We recover your critical information so you won’t have to worry about a system breach impeding on your reputation, your wallet, or your time.
When dealing with Data Recovery, capturing evidence, like memory dumps and log files, is time sensitive. The less the drive or device is handled, the better the opportunity to recover critical information from being lost forever. IT resources are forced to be the first line of defense and should be trained to handle data recovery and forensic analysis, preserving important evidence.
