The digital transformation is currently underway
One of the world’s leading technology experts, Alec Ross (who served as Coordinator for the Technology & Media Policy Committee during Barack Obama’s presidential campaign in 2008) said that in the next four years we will grow from 35 billion to 75 billion devices.
We are introducing computer codes in economic sectors historically not associated with digital, such as agriculture, the food sector, transport, fashion and the advanced manufacturing industry typical of Italy as well as the government.
The industries that will be most transformed in the next five years are just some of those that we could consider traditional.
Safeguard data heritage
Data are and will increasingly be the company’s assets and, like all things of great value, they must be adequately guarded and protected.
Companies will have to organize themselves to prevent any flaws with periodic Penetration Test and Vulnerability Assessment, discovering their weaknesses in advance allows them to adopt the appropriate countermeasures but for how many methods, tools and systems can be activated to secure the data there will always be a margin of criticality.
It is not just a question of preventing but of fulfilling a European legal obligation
Last but not least is an aspect, which can easily escape Italian companies, which concerns the legal obligations imposed on anyone who has data in digital form to manage. In particular, it is necessary to comply with the European regulation on privacy GDPR, the requirements concern personal and sensitive data, both very frequent and widespread.
From which it is clear that the systems and services put in place must be, to use a term particularly popular in this period, resilient and available, terms that in technical language can be translated as: high reliability and disaster recovery.
La soluzione ideale è Cloud Safe
Cloud Safe is the complete suite designed to protect the data of individuals and companies. Our servers are all in the European Union and this is an element that guarantees data security and compliance with Italian and European laws on privacy and data processing. The main features that contribute to the protection are:
- Disaster recovery
- File sharing
With Cloud Safe you also have the flexibility you need. The backup space adapts to your needs, you are free to extend it whenever you want to never risk losing your files.
The importance of Disaster Recovery from a Business Continuity perspective
As previously written, one of the key aspects for a company is the ability to maintain the execution of operational processes even under conditions of crisis and exposure to active threats, this activity is called Business Continuity.
Disaster Recovery is based on the replication of data and computer processing in an off-premise position that is not affected by the disastrous event and this allows to limit the disservices deriving from harmful events.
When servers fail due to a natural disaster, device failure, or attack that compromised cybersecurity, the company must recover lost data from a second location where data backup is available.
With Cloud Safe you can remotely restore the activity of your company or your customers in the event of a system crash and, in the event of a hardware failure, you can continue working while you take care of the recovery.
The advantages related to the use of a Disaster Recovery system are:
- Cost Savings: Having a disaster plan allows companies to save huge sums and can even make the difference between surviving or succumbing to a disastrous event, such as a hacker attack.
- Faster Recovery: Businesses with a Disaster Recovery plan can get back up and running faster after a disaster and even continue with normal operations as if nothing had happened.
GDPR and Cloud Safe
When it comes to Cloud services it is important to consider the issues related to data transfer. It often happens that the servers are located in foreign countries and this does not guarantee maximum transparency in the processing of data, especially if the Data Centers are outside the European Union.
Our service is based on servers present on the European territory and therefore fully compliant with the GDPR regulation.
