Charlie Wood in CIO Review: Data Protection in the Cloud Is About Responsibility

Our own Founder & CEO, Charlie Wood has an article in the June issue of CIO Review magazine about IT’s responsibility in the cloud. In it, he calls for IT departments to avoid the potential for data loss in cloud computing by implementing a new set of data protection best practices that include backup and recovery solutions.

Responsibility is a big deal for us here at Spanning. Just as our clients trust us to protect their data, organizations trust their IT departments to do the same. We often hear from IT professionals that have rushed into the cloud without the consideration of data protection and now realize they need a backup and recovery solution after the experience of losing something important.

“But it’s in the cloud!” says the cloud-enthusiast IT pro.

Yes, and the cloud is a good thing. But the cloud does not equal data protection just by association. It’s an IT professional’s responsibility to make sure that the data they’ve been entrusted with is stored safely, encrypted properly and is always ready for the worst case through a simple backup and recovery process.

Charlie started Spanning with a clear understanding of how important data protection, backup and recovery is to every organization. Start your 14-day free trial of Spanning Backup today.
