What might be the true cost of  using a Data Recovery Service?

The true cost of  employing a less than competent or unprofessional data recovery practitioner,  losing your data  or  finding that your data is in the wrong hands   can be catastrophic.  Our advice is to shop around , ask questions and get to know the data recovery providers  capabilities, set-up, security regime, integrity and history before handing over your vital data. Deal with the situation as though your life  depended on it and before you proceed, ask yourself the key question “would you hand over your data to a complete stranger ? ” Proceed with caution !

The role of the I.C.O.

Under the Data Protection Act 1998, all organisations that process personal information must register with the I.C.O., failure to register with the I.C. O., is against the law.  The I.C.O., code of practice outlines how companies must explain to their customers how their information is being used and processed.

The Information Commissioners Office (I.C.O. ) and  current General Data Protection Regulations (G.D.P.R) recognize that  those dealing with  and processing personal data MUST comply with an adequate code of practice.  Employing trained and competent staff using procedures and facilities that comply with  general standards of safety and security.

What info does your hard drive,  phone,  laptop, ipad,  notebook or storage device hold?

In most cases our customers are aware of  specific items such as pics, emails, accounts etc.,  whose immediate loss is the prima facie case for their  enquiry.  Their  total data loss liability however is not generally understood or appreciated.    Bank,  credit and debit card details, personal data, passwords, personal emails, internet search history etc are taken for granted. Simple techniques can expose your personal affairs to risk and abuse.

Obligations to your clients.

Business clients  and those working in a professional capacity such as health sector workers, teachers, legal, public sector organisations et al need to be  aware of their own legal obligations to their clients. Risky assignations with the local PC repair shop or an “on the cheap ” data recovery service provider can fall foul of  the regulator and be truly catastrophic. Search engine results will generally not provide you with this vital information so be diligent and be sure to check out who you intend to engage in attempting to recover your data.
