Our Canadian Data Storage Facilities are located in Toronto with real time duplication to Vancouver.
With our operations located entirely in Canada, data stored with Mastermind is completely under Canadian Privacy Laws. These provide the best protection in the world against data theft and compromise, and mean your data is not subject to the laws of other countries, including the US Patriot Act.
We are now ISO 27001 approved: learn more.
Our Canadian Data Centre is a state of the art facility incorporating the latest in cloud storage technology and high security systems such as ….
Our Canadian cloud storage facilities provide reliable, secure backup for your data storage needs.
Though some may have understandable concerns about a third party holding their most valuable data, in reality online backups are very secure. Before being transferred, the backup data is encrypted to a 256-bit level – military-grade – making it effectively impossible for anyone to intercept or decrypt the data. You are the only person who can read it.
Another common concern is the data storage center itself. At Mastermind Backup, we offer secure data storage in our class-A facilities. Our facility is equipped with:
We are also ISO 27001-5005 certified. Which guarantees a very high level of security and password encryption. Our tech staff do not have access to your password and if you forget the password we cannot retrieve your data. The password is the encryption key.
Most organizations have a number of information security controls. However, without an information security management system (ISMS), controls tend to be somewhat disorganized and disjointed, having been implemented often as point solutions to specific situations or simply as a matter of convention. Security controls in operation typically address certain aspects of IT or data security specifically; leaving non-IT information assets (such as paperwork and proprietary knowledge) less protected on the whole. Moreover business continuity planning and physical security may be managed quite independently of IT or information security while Human Resources practices may make little reference to the need to define and assign information security roles and responsibilities throughout the organization.
A company may want to adopt ISO 27001 for the following reasons:
If you own a computer, chances are good that you have some important information on it. Whether your hard-drive is home to important emails, documents, pictures, or financial records, the data on your computer is likely playing an increasingly large role in your day-to-day life. With so much riding on these delicate machines, it’s no surprise that the words crash, virus, and stolen laptop can send chills down our spines.
We’ve all heard horror stories from friends, family, and colleagues about the nightmare that lost data can reap upon us. Backing up is the process of taking your important files and storing them separately from your computer. In this way, if your computer crashes or is infected with a virus, you will still have your important data available to you. When your computer is fixed or replaced, you can then restore your files and continue on with your life. Backups are usually accomplished by periodically copying files to DVDs or cassette tapes.
When used diligently, cloud storage and backup are often effective ways of preventing data loss, however, the cost and time associated with creating backups every night means that all but the most diligent among us are usually left without our most recent data when something goes wrong.
Online backup is an alternative to optical or tape backup systems. It uses a combination of software and high-speed internet services to automatically make backups of your information every night.
Using military-grade encryption that only you have the key to, your data is transported to, and stored in, high-security facilities. It is then readily available when you need it, without any tapes, CDs, or nightly rituals to worry about. Think of it as a nightly armoured-car and safety-deposit-box service for your valuable information.
Online backups offer several advantages. The main one is the disaster recovery offered by offsite storage, but there are also several advantages in terms of ease of use:
Setup and installation is a simple matter of downloading the software, and it takes only a few minutes to set up.
Data recovery is equally fast, as there is no searching for the right tape or waiting for IT staff to recover lost data. The online backup process itself is completely automated, which ensures that it gets done right and on-time.
With your cloud backup in Canada, you also receive peace of mind, knowing your data is protected by Canadian law.
