Data Protection for Small Businesses
Did you know that the average data breach costs a company $7.2 million, or $214 per breached record?

2. Develop data-recovery and disaster-recovery plans: Write out a plan for data recovery as well as what you would do after a disaster.
3. Educate employees: The time spent on data protection is much less than the time it will take to recover your losses, after something goes wrong. (The most common password is "Password1". How many of your employees use that password?)
