Data Security, Loss Prevention, Backups and RecoveryThe loss of data in today’s fast pace and competitive environment can be disastrous to an organization or individual. For some companies it can even be a "show stopper" causing companies to incur heavy loses in production and downtime costs and sometimes unfortunately, even resulting in a company's closure.

I can assist you and your company within all the different areas of data protection, data backups, recovery and data risk assessment needs. Understanding that while you need to get on with doing the business of business, you need to be reassured that your data is secure, available and recoverable. My extensive years of experience within the field of information technology can give you and your company this peace of mind.

I would like to encourage you to give me a try first on a free assessment basis, and if the storage media is really badly damaged I will advise you first of all the different and most feasible options available.
