G Suite Security 0 20825

Let’s review the most common causes of data loss in the cloud and data loss protection tools. Well, we are not paranoiacs. Sometimes even to the contrary: when we lose important files we would really like if there was a copy of it somewhere.

  1. User error
    Cloud services provide an ability to delete users’ data. Usually, it’s an accidental deletion. Some users blame themselves, others blame unfriendly interface. “I see a list of everything I wrote in Google Docs, but can never see the actual content again,” describes his horrible experience Google user. Do you also tap the “Delete” button by mistake sometimes? Good reason to have a backup.Cloud services like Google has its own internal backup solutions. For some reasons they are not available for the end users. Spinbackup is a great tool that makes your Google experience better and more secure.
  2. Cyber-attackers or a malware. If you try to search for someone deleted my Gmail account you will see many cases of this unfortunate situation.

On the picture below you can see that more and more people are searching these words every year.

If your job is important, you might become a victim of hackers. Or evil prankers. Just imagine the situation: someone sees you typing your password, and later logs into your account just to delete everything you have. Of course, you will change your password after that. But you will never get back data that you’ve lost. Well, if you don’t have a backup, it’s a real disaster. Spinbackup solves it with a click.

Google itself keeps multiple backup copies of users’ emails  so that they can recover messages and restore accounts in case of errors or system failure. But having a copy of a deleted email doesn’t mean it can be easily recovered. If someone deleted your emails or files accidentally or on purpose, Google Inc. might not restore it for you. This is why Spinbackup is here.

Hackers are able to easily gain access to your Gmail, Google Drive and other services mostly because users tend to make mistakes.Read the list below. Is at least one thing about you?

                      1. You logged in to your account on a public computer and forgot to log out.
                      2. You lost you computer or smartphone connected to your account.
                      3. Your computer was infected by viruses or trojans.
                      4. You had a fight with someone on the web and that someone turned out to be experienced IT-specialist who knows how to hack accounts.
                      5. Your password is “password” or “123456” or your kid’s name.
                      6. You use the same password for multiple services.

Well, even if one of the above mentioned things is about you, that means that you are already in danger of losing all of your data. So maybe today is a good day to start making backups. The most important thing to remember: having a daily automated backup is always a good habit.

Don’t wait, create a new Spinbackup account today to protect yourself from the most common causes of data loss. Spinbackup is your right cloud to cloud backup and recovery solutions provider.
