Vendor selection check sheet for data damage
In recent years, cyberattacks have affected organizations’ data, such as incidents where files were encrypted by ransomware. Organizations whose data has been encrypted or lost may turn to data recovery providers to restore the data to its original state. However, there are an increasing number of cases where business operators who perform data recovery are interpreting the “recovery rate” at their own convenience, and cases where troubles occur over the cost of handling, contracts, etc.
