Will you be heading home with your notebook for the holidays later this month? Will you be staying home and continue to commute and compute with your laptop daily? Regardless, be vigilant and protect your data.
Your computer has a monetary value, but the data that resides on the hard drive is the most valuable commodity. Protecting corporate data should be your first priority especially in these turbulent economic times.
Did you know according to an article by IDG News Service’s Agam Shah that Some of the largest and medium-sized U.S. airports report close to 637,000 laptops lost each year, according to the Ponemon Institute?
Whether you’re a student with a hand-me-down laptop or a business executive with the latest and greatest model, the daily grind of commuting can cause damage to the read/write heads of your laptop’s drive making data inaccessible.
But don’t panic if you do find yourself not being able to access your data on your laptop. When data does go missing, and it will, contact a reputable data recovery specialist.
If looking for a last-minute gift idea for the commuter in your family consider a one or three-year CBL Data Recovery Service Protection Plan for $49.99 or $99.99 respectively. After all, it’s never matter of if data loss will happen; it’s simply a matter of when.
