Accountant - Lawyer - Architects

In terms of online data backup, what makes professional organizations such as accountants, lawyers and architects special, is their increasing reliance on computers to process and store information and data.  Accountants need to manage their own and their clients data.  Lawyers produce large amounts of case data, with multiple versions of documents.  Architects are characterized by their increasing volumes of drawing data.

Fee income for all professionals is related to the productivity of staff and partners.  And if billable staff are non-productive, it can impact directly on the bottom line of the business.

There are liability and other legal issues to consider when much of the work involves dealing with important and client confidential data, data which might not be properly protected.

Perhaps one final factor is that most firms rely heavily on their professional reputation for continuity of business and for winning new clients.

So what price lost client data, lost productivity and damaged reputation?

How vulnerable is your data?
Viruses, Hackers and Spyware
Not long ago, computer viruses, hackers and spyware were of interest only to businesses with sensitive data and to IT professionals. Now these items routinely make front page news. Any computer connected to the Internet is exposed to these dangers and the data loss that accompanies them.

Hard Drive and Hardware Failures
Hard drives store more data, are smaller and are cheaper than ever.  But all hard drives will eventually fail.  Hard drives are simply not designed to last forever. Of course, unfortunately, you can never predict when they will fail.
Natural Disasters and Theft
Most of us have insurance to protect our homes from disasters such as fires and floods, hurricanes and earthquakes.  But what's protecting your data?  Anything that can damage your home, can destroy your computer and the information that it stores.   And on top of natural disaster, we live in a world today where terrorism and theft must be considered. 
Human Error
Even if such disasters don't strike and we all hope they don't, we humans aren't perfect either. Most of us have at one point or another accidentally deleted a file or had a file overwritten.
