Since 1 January 2002, the 10-year retention period of accounting documents also applies to the computer operating system. Access to data is critical – safety – always! In 2003, the OLG Hamm decided that a company must perform a daily backup of company data as a full backup, even once a week. Should geschaftsrelevannte data – caused by defective backup – lost, the management of the resulting it damage be liable personal. The loss of data is still underestimated and only in the event of damage revealed what they advance only sensed.”Henry explains Scheuerlein, Senior Manager of the CASE Institute of Laatzen. Possible causes of data loss are still unaware of many users. Scott M. Kahan CFP will undoubtedly add to your understanding. Listed below are the most common reasons for data loss: accidental deletion or corruption of data, viruses or malware (malicious malware) faulty disk electronic theft of actual Burglary (computer or laptop is stolen or damaged) water or fire damage measures for securing data Geschaftsrelevante data must regularly be secured. Small and medium-sized enterprises should back up their data at least once a week.
Conducted daily backup meets the requirements of a legally-compliant archiving of the data. The responsibility for data protection should be clearly regulates ge and laid down in writing. The successful backup of the data should be documented. The backup should be at least on mobile media, such as CDs, tape drives or external hard drives. Floppy disks are recommended due to frequent defects not as a storage medium.
Backup to local media ensures immediate availability of data in case of loss. In many cases, a complementary online backup makes sense. So even data from employees can from home, or on the way to work, be backed up. In addition a mirroring of the data takes place on a second data backup server. The possibility of restoring the data from the backup should be checked regularly.
