Business leaders are invited to a free lunch and seminar where they can learn more about making sure their data is secure in the event of a disaster.
Award-winning data backup experts ADAM Continuity are to hold a briefing on trends surrounding data growth where free advice will be given on how organisations can make sure their data can be restored if the worst happens.
Many businesses are at risk of losing vital information forever if their technology fails because they do not have protection in place.
The event, to be held at Watford FC’s Vicarage Road Conference and Events Centre on Thursday, March 27, includes a Q&A session on data backup and recovery and is also a valuable networking opportunity for companies in the region.
Speakers include Niall Mackey, general manager of leading cloud security Topsec Technology, Ian Burleton, head of solutions at ADAM Continuity, and Ronan McCurtin, Managing Director at ADAM.
Ronan said: “With the amount of data used by companies expected to grow by 800 per cent over the next five years, businesses are under great pressure to ensure they have sufficient capacity and the capability to restore their data in the event of a disaster.
“This, combined with the need to have systems operational round the clock and the focus on reducing budgets, means business owners and IT managers need to come up with more efficient strategies.
“A large percentage of businesses do not have their data backed up and of those that do, most have either failed to test their disaster recovery procedures or store their backed-up data on site.
“This is a worrying trend as research shows that half of all businesses which suffer a disaster or data loss with no effective plans for recovery will fail within the first 12 months.”
Doors for the seminar open at 9.30am for a 10am start, and the session concludes with lunch at 1.15pm.
Guests are asked to register to secure a place. To book, call Wendy Mills at ADAM Continuity on 01256 378134 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
