How Your Bookkeeping Data Is Kept Secure
The security of client data & information in the cloud is a consistent concern of clients.
It’s no wonder because of the constant reports of hacking and the importance not only of your financials, but also that they remain private. The answer to this question should be a reassuring one.
We should first tell you that, like any other system, the Cloud isn’t a 100% guarantee of security. Nothing is, though – the Cloud, your own computer or servers or anything else.
What the Cloud does have, though, is deeper levels of protection than you’ll get in the other options.
WHY & HOW YOUR DATA IS MADE SAFE IN THE CLOUD
For example, data in the Cloud is automatically encrypted. Meaning that even if a hacker did get through, they’d still have to then crack that encryption, which is not easy.
Data is also backed up, so should something happen to the Cloud servers, you’d have your current, or a very close-to-it, version of your data that’s ready to access.
We’ve all heard stories of businesses who forgot to back up their office-stored data, only to have a computer crash.
Or the business who never bothered to do backups in the first place. In the Cloud it’s taken care of for you. Automatically.
In addition, the Cloud has in place security software and measures that are above and beyond what you have in office.
However, all of this comes down to you most of all.
HOW YOU CAN PROTECT YOUR DATA BETTER
Creating secure passwords for the Cloud is crucial. That was the weak link in the Apple Cloud hacking, which resulted in photos from the phones of some famous actresses going public.
The issue was passwords that were easily figured out and bypassed. Not the Cloud’s security.
You can trust the Cloud, but you play a major part in keeping your information safe, too.
Treat that duty as high-priority, maybe the highest, and your experience should be the same as so many other businesses in the Cloud today – confident satisfaction.
