TORONTO KineticD, known for its cloud backup and data recovery services for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), today urges municipalities and government agencies to back up sensitive data to the Cloud, instead of relying on portable devices that can be lost or stolen.
In December of 2012, a federal government department in Canada announced that a USB key containing personal information, including Social Insurance Numbers, of about 5,000 Canadians went missing. Only a few short weeks after, in January of this year, the same agency lost data on 583,000 Canadians when a portable hard drive went missing.
³This type of data loss is unnecessary and avoidable,² said Jamie Brenzel, CEO of KineticD. ³Even with today¹s technological advances in cloud data backup and recovery, instances such as these continue to plague small municipalities, government agencies and medical facilities. While cyber security is an international concern, data loss because of misplaced equipment can be prevented by taking the steps to move sensitive data to a secure cloud service.²
KineticD urges any city, municipal, or government agency and in particular, medical facilities and doctors offices that are responsible for sensitive personal data, to consider other means for storing and managing these types of critical files. As a Canadian cloud data backup and recovery specialist with more than 10 years experience in the industry, KineticD¹s data center in Toronto has been equipped with the latest technology to protect client data. Additionally, its patented software was developed with key features that provide peace of mind and ease-of-use capabilities for those agencies/offices including:
