Construction and building services group Fairbrother was struggling to execute distributed data backup and recovery processes across its nine offices. Lack of regular tape changing at remote sites, data volumes exceeding tape size and a concern about tape reliability prompted them to seek a more effective business continuity solution.

This White Paper weighs up Facebook’s pros and cons, and shows how to keep your company safe – whatever policy you choose to implement.
This whitepaper sets out a flexible three stage approach that helps organisations set their security priorities and ensures that the time and effort spent on security is put to good use. It sets out a baseline of security controls that all organisations should apply and that is easy to understand, maintain and manage. Each business can set their security at a level that is right for today, and can then raise that security bar to address their security needs as their business grows and security trends evolve.
