In the current day and age, it is no exaggeration to say that information is the most powerful possession in the world for individuals, Governments, corporations as well as businessmen and the best way to compile information is to create a data base on information that can be accessed as and when required by the individuals concerned. It is indeed a great development that people can now keep all their documents and any form of information in a digital format which enables them to do away with keeping cumbersome files and piles of paper work which always have the possibility of being lost, damaged or easily tampered with. However, the establishment of a digital platform has allowed people to keep data in an incredibly convenient way which allows easy access to information and also allows the date to be classified according to the levels of hierarchy in the organisation.
Although it is undoubtedly a wonderful development that people are now able to keep information in a format that is fast, light and convenient but it is not without its dangers as many companies have found to their cost. It might sometimes happen that viruses may infiltrate the security filters in the computer network of the organisation and these viruses damage the data base in a variety of ways. For instance, the virus might try and steal confidential information from the tape drives and transmit it straight to the hacker or in an act of something akin to digital terrorism, the virus might as well wipe out the entire data base of the organisation. It is a lurking danger for all companies and data bases, so it is certainly desirable that computer networks are secured as much as possible so that viruses cannot infiltrate them.
However, in addition to the security filters and fire wall protection that people install, it is always better to have some sort of technology in place so that the lost data can be retrieved and the company does not face an IT break down that would derail their operations. One of the best known techniques that successfully retrieves data is known as data acquisition. A company that has been an industry leader in data acquisition techniques as well as other forms of computer forensics tools such as password recovery and encryption is 'Cyber4orensics', which has been able to provide these services with consistently high quality to a variety of clients across Australia.
