Creating a company security policy is a very important step in keeping sensitive information safe from unauthorized access. Even small business should have some type of security policy or rules that their employees have to abide by. When it comes to a security policy the following areas should be defined:
Physical security is pretty obvious, the actual physical access to the servers, computers and storage devices that store your sensitive information. For example, file servers should be in a room that is locked and only a certain group of people should have access to this room and any activity to this room could be monitored. This could also include an alarm system to the building, and a surveillance system.
Access control is another imporant area in a company's information security. The most basic access control would be to have a password policy in place. A password polcie usually defines password complexity, minimum length, minimum and maximum age, and password history. To learn how to implexment strong passwords please see the follow article from Microsoft:
Other ways to control access is through permissions. Creating groups and users that have different access permissions keeps the sensitive information safe from authorized employees and unauthorized users.
The integrity of the information stored on a company's servers and computers play a vital role in the success of any business. The loss of this data in any way could be an extreme set back and costly to recover from. To ensure your data stays safe and intact, Alpine Computing designs every backup plan to meet the exact needs of your company. These plans involve several different elements:
Back up for hardware failure
This is incredibly important since hardware & software failure are a very common cause for data to become corrupt or lost. This type of backup will is normal stored on a backup device of some kind in the same physical location as the original data. This type of backup can protect a business from the follow:
Backup for Disasters
To backup for disasters like fire, earthquake, hurricane or any other disaster that destroy everything in a location of a business, the data has to be backed up to a location offsite. You can do this by:
Restore from a backup
Backing up your data is extremely important, but making sure the backups are working properly is just as important. Backups should be checked at regular intervals and a plan should be put in place and tested to restore a backup in the event of a disaster or any type of data loss. This will keep productivity up and down time to a minimal.
