Episode 102: What Happens When Data Loss Happens to You?

Data is at the core of our organizations. From our documented processes to payroll information and systems, if data loss occurs, businesses are severely impacted. In this episode, Chris Marshall, the founder of Verified Backups, shares his nearly three decades of data experience to explain how data loss can happen, how it can be prevented with backups, and the crucial practice of testing backups regularly.

After nearly 28 years of creating data warehouses, custom reports and user automation, Chris Marshall started Verified Backups LLC to bring peace of mind to CEOs and company owners. They have developed PATENT-PENDING technology to test each and every database backup to ensure it’s usable and current. They help companies recover when disaster strikes.
