What Are the Risks of Not Having a Strong Computer Backup Plan?

solution IT managed services 

During the last decade, computers have become essential tools for all kinds of businesses and have increased the need for managed IT services Denver area. Apart from running software suites that help people work more efficiently, they fulfill a critical role: they store data.

 

And data is the most valuable asset for most businesses. They contain confidential client agreements, accounting records, sales data, the employees’ personal data, etc. Without these data, most businesses would be unable to function.

 

The Impact of Data Loss on Businesses

If a computer malfunctions and you lose the data on it, your business is seriously at risk. According to statistics:

  • 94% of companies never fully recover after a major data loss incident
  • 70% of small businesses close within 12 months after data loss
  • 43% of small businesses never reopen after losing their data.

 

So, how does data get lost? And what is the role of a computer backup plan in this issue?

 

How Does Computer Malfunction Cause Data Loss?

Computers can break down in several ways. In many cases, they can be repaired or you can replace a defective part. However, when the hard disk drive (HDD) breaks down, you may be unable to fix it.

 

Or, if repair is possible, it may come with the cost of losing all the data stored on it. In other cases, a HDD can be held hostage by hackers, who encrypt all the data on it. They will ask you to pay a lot of money to give you back access to your information. Paying this cyber ransom is no guarantee that the hackers will actually do what they said.

 

What Is a Computer Backup Plan?

Data backup is the process of creating a copy of all your files and folders and storing it in a different location than the computer where it is originally stored. Many IT admins create an entire virtual image of a computer HDD, allowing you to restore not only your files and folders, but also all the software suites installed on that computer.

 

Here are just a few best practices for creating a strong computer backup plan:

 

  1. Create a Schedule for Data Backup

You should create a schedule for backing up all the data on the computers in your business. Once every month, you should instruct all your employees to back up their data on the storage facility you have selected.

 

  1. Consider Where You Save Backup Copies

The next step is considering where you keep backup copies of your data. You have several options:

  • Another computer
  • An external HDD
  • A memory stick
  • CD/DVD
  • Cloud storage services.

 

The most important consideration is the safety of the backup solution. A computer, HDD or memory stick can malfunction. CDs and DVDs are easily broken or stolen. In this context, cloud storage services appear the safest option.

 

  1. Control the Access to Data Backup

Once you decide where to backup company data, you must decide who can access it, in order to restore lost documents. This access should be restricted to the persons who actually perform data restoring, and to you, as the business owner.

How Does Air Quality Affect Animals?

beef industry news

We all know how the quality of air that we breathe affects our life, how clean, fresh, oxygen-rich air is beneficial for our entire body and promotes our health, but the quality of the air affects not only the health and life of the human being – the health of animals is also impacted by the amounts of pollutants found in air. Here are some facts and thoughts on the topic.

What Is Air Pollution?

Beef industry news sources report that air pollution is the process of releasing solid particles, gases and aerosols into the air. These compounds and particles then modify the composition of the atmosphere and have direct harmful effects on the health of any living organism exposed to the polluted air as well as many indirect effects that arise from the fact that all natural systems are interconnected and rely heavily on each other for survival and growth.

Effects on Pets

The household pets exposed to polluted air for too long are at a higher risk of developing respiratory affections, skin problems, cardiovascular diseases and tumors than the pets that breathe healthy, fresh air. The pets that are frequently taken out for walks in heavily circulated areas are even more at risk because their body height makes them more vulnerable to inhaling the exhaust gas of cars.

Effects on Birds

Unfortunately, the creatures that move around high up in the air and build their nests at heights are also exposed to severe risks because of air pollution. The biggest harm is caused by the power plants that burn coal, but any uncontrolled or poorly controlled industrial activity can be harmful for avian creatures. They are also affected indirectly, by the pollution of wetlands and of other types of land where they hunt for food.

Effects on Fish

When polluted air meets rain, the resulting precipitation becomes acidulous. When that acid rain reaches into streams, rivers and lakes and the pollutants collected by the rain from the air are transferred into the natural bodies of water, the fish living in those waters can suffer from respiratory distress and other forms of harm that has caused many fish species to disappear and continues to put other species at risk of extinction.

Effects on Insects

Insects are also very sensitive to air pollution. They sense and react to even the smallest changes in air quality and they are easily driven away from their usual habitats by any modification in the composition of the air around. As insects play an important role in the food chain, providing nutrition for birds, fish and other animals, the disappearance of insect species or a decrease in their population can have grave consequences for the species that feed on them.

The insect species that are the most resilient are also the ones that do not feed on organic waste. If air pollution can change the composition of the species that inhabit a particular area, driving away the species that do consume organic waste, the process can lead to an accumulation of organic waste in that area.

How to Choose a New Home Builder?

new homes Erie CO

When you look for a home builder for new homes Erie CO, you must first of all make sure that you choose a contractor you can trust with your safety as well as with the money for the execution of the project. Why is that? Because we all want to have a solid home, able to resist in the event of an earthquake and have quality installations and finishes. Nobody wants their new home to require interventions after only a few years of operation.

You should look for a building company and not a team of “private” employees, but even in this case you must be careful.

First of all, a company that presents itself to you with a construction price per square meter should be avoided, as this is an indicator of unprofessionalism. Why? – A serious offer is made only after studying the project, including the execution details. The specialist dealing your quote, and implicitly with the offer, cannot know, for example, the degree of reinforcement of the elements that make up the construction.

You must also know that a building company must be licensed and authorized to be able to design/ execute the construction and the installations. Also, the builder you consider hiring for new homes Erie CO construction must have a technical manager and a supervisor or the project`s quality.

After all these clarifications, how will you actually choose a home builder?

Use the Internet to find companies in your area. Select enough companies to make a selection and contact them to ask for offers and estimates. Make sure the contractor is up to date with the newest technologies and equipment. Use Google to check for additional information. The Better Business Bureau`s website is a great source of details that can help you make up your mind about which contractor to hire. You should be interested in the builder`s reviews, problems with customers and they way they have been solved, as well as problems related to insolvencies or lawsuits filed against it..

How should you select the offers?

First of all, eliminate the most expensive offers, but also those that are unusually cheap. Cheap homes can be built only at the expenses of the manufacturer`s profit, or by altering the quality of the execution. No Erie CO builder will work out of pocket.

You must also take into account the experience of the builder, what has it worked so far. Before signing a contract, it would be good to see some of the houses built by the contractor and possibly discuss with former customers. Then, make sure that each stage of the project will be done by a specialized builder. For example, the structure should be made by a specialist in structures, while finishes, siding, roof etc. should be the responsibility of other specialists. Be particularly careful about this aspect, because there are many builders who have many employees and some of them are not specialized in certain types of works.

Once you decided on which builder you will hire, your next preoccupation should be the conclusion of the contract. You might want to consider hiring a lawyer, just to ensure that you will not deal with hidden costs or other unpleasant situations.

Finally yet importantly, considering that money represent a central aspect of a home building project, make sure that the payment is made by installment, meaning that you will not be required to pay too much in advance.

We live in a strongly interconnected society, in which a large part of the population is concentrated in urban agglomerations. In addition, the dynamics of human movement on the planet continue to grow exponentially, favoring the spread of diseases. Airborne viruses, such as influenza virus, rhinoviruses or the new virus – SARS-CoV-2 – are transmitted by particles that can be released by symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals. Physiological actions such as coughing, sneezing or even breathing produce aerosols of various sizes, which can carry viruses up to several meters away, causing infections when inhaled. In addition, the new coronavirus can remain on surfaces for up to 72 hours, the contact with those surfaces being another cause of infection. Thus, reducing exposure requires the inactivation of viruses in the air and on actively used surfaces.

EPA approved disinfectant

The most efficient method nowadays is considered to be the electrostatic cleaning with the help of devices that nebulize a biocide EPA approved disinfectant solution.

Disinfection by nebulization is also known as cold mist, or ULV spray, being performed with the help of special applicators. This treatment for the elimination of viruses and bacteria is used for any type of indoor space, being particularly efficient even in the most difficult to reach areas, ensuring a complete disinfection. This means that in the next period, you will have the opportunity to live/ work in much cleaner area, without risk of contamination.

Nebulization is a procedure that converts chemical disinfectant from the liquid state into volatile micro particles, with a size between 4 and 15 microns that act quickly and safely to neutralize viruses, bacteria and other pathogens. These particles are electrostatically charged to attach to surfaces that need to be cleaned.

Electrostatic spraying services provide the disinfection of the entire volume of a space with the help of these micro particles. Every millimeter of surfaces and any object in an enclosure, with any geometry is thus sanitized, being covered by the chemical particles that float and generates a fog effect. The substance used for nebulization does not affect food or clothes, therefore people may use the sanitized premises shortly after disinfection. Moreover, this type of disinfection is not harmful to people with asthma, or to allergic people, because it kills fungi too, eliminating effects such as sneezing, skin irritations etc.

No volatile organic compounds are formed, due to the rapid decomposition of more than 99.9% of the mist, which leaves nothing behind after acting. Volumes between 1m3 and 2000m3 can be treated very efficiently with this method.

Electrostatic spraying services do not produce moisture or paracetic acid, so they are not corrosive, being safe also for electronic equipment. It does not stain surfaces or generate residues.

Coronavirus and other viruses are destroyed under the action of biocides, and the 3D effect of electrostatic spraying resets the biocidal history, removing the entire microaeroflora from the disinfected space.

Electrostatic spraying services can be used successfully in the following applications:

  • storage spaces for fruits and vegetables
  • medical areas
  • schools, kindergartens
  • residential spaces
  • halls and production or storage spaces
  • retail stores
  • restaurants
  • transportation means: cars, public transport, special vehicles, airplanes
  • greenhouses etc.
