It is also advisable to use a disaster recovery service, a very complete solution that, in addition to copying the data, also guarantees its efficient restoration in the event of natural disasters or infrastructure failures. This type of solutions has the main objective of eliminating (or at least minimizing on a large scale) a company’s downtime due to failures. RAAS is a disaster recovery service fully managed by a specialized team and gives you the possibility to recover a virtual server in seconds.

Create an information security policy
The security policy is a document developed by the company that records the security principles that the company adopts and that must be followed by employees and is increasingly necessary in today’s companies. The security policy must be applied to all information systems, at the desktop and mobile level. For the policy to be respected, it is essential that top managers participate in its implementation and that there are clarification sessions on each point of this document.
