It’s the moment every IT department dreads: A data loss event takes your business offline and the countdown clock begins. Despite spending countless hours safeguarding against and preparing for this moment, the impact of downtime is immediate and all-consuming.
While IT pros can’t always avoid data loss events, they can prepare for them to ensure minimal downtime. To better
understand the IT experience during a data disaster, EVault commissioned Spiceworks Voice of IT to survey IT pros regarding disaster recovery practices and perceptions. All survey respondents were based in the U.S. and have influence over backup/disaster recovery purchase decisions. This e-book will explore the impact of downtime and data loss on IT departments for small and midsize businesses.
Businesses today are faced with the almost insurmountable task of complying with a confusing array of laws and regulations relating to data privacy and security. These can come from a variety of sources: local, state, national, and, even, international law makers. This is not just a problem for big businesses. Even a small business with a localised geographic presence may be subject to laws from other states and, possibly, other nations by virtue of having a presence on the internet.
In many instances, these laws and regulations are vague and ambiguous, with little specific guidance as to compliance. Worse yet, the laws of different jurisdictions may be, and frequently are, conflicting. One state or country may require security measures that are entirely different from those of another state or country. Reconciling all of these legal obligations can be, at best, a full time job and, at worst, the subject of fines, penalties, and lawsuits.
Competitive enterprises that embark on big data strategies do so with the expectation that their businesses will transform. They don't just want answers from the data they collect and analyze, they want results. Be it with small, fledgling trials or large, cross-functional efforts, these enterprises want to see clearly how big data can make a difference - with their customers, their processes, their bottom lines and, most important, with growing the business.

Malware that encrypts a victim’s data until the extortionist’s demands are met is one of the most common forms of cybercrime. And the prevalence of ransomware attacks continues to increase. Cybercriminals are now using more than 50 different forms of ransomware to target and extort money from unsuspecting
individuals and businesses.
Ransomware attacks are pervasive. More than 4,000 ransomware attacks happen every day, and the volume of attacks is increasing at a rate of 300 percent annually. According to an IDT911 study, 84 percent of small and midsize businesses will not meet or report ransomware demands.
No one is safe from ransomware, as it attacks enterprises and SMBs, government agencies, and individuals indiscriminately. While ransomware demands more than doubled in 2016 to $679 from $294 in 2015, the cost of remediating the damage and lost productivity is many multiples higher.

Even with the rise of digital payments, cash is still a popular form of payment. According to the Federal Reserve, consumers use cash to pay for nearly one-third of all retail transactions.

Compliance is one of the top challenges facing any payroll and HR department. It’s up to you to ensure that all personnel business practices follow current laws and that you are keeping proper records to document your company’s compliance. While an efficient payroll system can help to enhance employee moral and boost your reputation, mistakes in record-keeping and compliance can result in punitive penalties– even lawsuits.

It’s reported that as many as one in three small businesses are penalised for incorrect payroll. To protect your company from costly fines and even litigation, you need to stay informed about employment laws, reporting rules, and changing workforce compliance issues. In this guide, we look at the challenges and the payroll solutions that will help your payroll department meet its compliance requirements wit
