Real SMB IT; Risk Of Data Loss Starts Inside

August 4, 2009

Some estimates put up to 66% of data loss either accidentally or deliberately performed by insiders.

That is a dry statistic.

Real World

Three times in the last two weeks, and twice today alone, our development staff accidentally deleted data on production servers. Twice were accidentally writing errant database delete statements that deleted entire tables in a database.

The third was dumping data into the wrong spot, overwriting the stuff that was supposed to be there.

The SMB Takeaway

Sure, outsiders, hackers etc are a risk. But the largest risk is inside your walls.
