In this video interview, David M. Smith, PhD, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and Associate Professor of Economics at the Graziadio School of Business and Management discusses the takeaways from his recent paper, “Data Loss and Hard Drive Failure: Understanding the Causes and Costs.” Hard drive failure is an inescapable reality, Smith writes, and most firms will face data loss unless they put preventive measures in place.
Questions for Dr. Smith:
- In case of hardware failure, what precautions do you recommend to to prevent data loss?
- Do you see Macs and alternative OS computers that employ seamless backup changing the data loss landscape?
- Any advice on training employees on data loss preventive measures?
- What are network data loss prevention (DLP) systems?
