Nearly eight of 10 companies fail to include data recovery in their compliance policies, according to a global...
survey carried out by Kroll Ontrack.
Some 78% of respondents said that they believed data recovery to be the most important component of a compliance plan, but only half said that it is part of their company's policy. This could leave them vulnerable to a disaster, said Kroll Ontrack.
Almost half (46%) of respondents said they were not sure if their company had a general policy to comply with the applicable regulations, and 43% said they thought their companies failed to test their backup systems to ensure data can be produced if needed.
