How To Prevent Data Loss and Implement Data Recovery

How To Prevent Data Loss And Implement Data Recovery

Anastasia Stefanuk is a passionate writer and a marketing manager at Mobilunity. The company provides professional staffing services, so she is always aware of technology news and wants to share her experience to help tech startups and companies to be up-to-date. 

As a business person or a person who owns a computer, how prepared are you in protecting yourself against data loss?

If you lost all of your important files and memorable photos, do you think you would be able to run data recovery to reclaim them?

Data recovery is the process of salvaging lost data from either a secondary storage system, removable media or files.

In this digital era, data has been classified as the new “oil”. In the business world, data is the driving force behind innovation, competition, productivity, and improvement of core operations. Likewise, governments all over the world require data to make vital decisions that will affect their populace.

With that in mind, the convergence of data streaming from billions of mobile phones, digital platforms, virtual-reality applications, and wireless sensors, continue to pile up with each passing day. In fact, it is estimated that the amount of electronic data in existence today is 2.7 zettabytes. This number is expected to grow to 175 zettabytes by 2025.

This presents a humongous challenge in managing and ensuring that such a large amount of data is secure. In addition, the looming question in many people’s minds is; what would happen if all this data magically disappeared? Would the world come to a standstill or are there backup mechanisms where it can be retrieved later?

In this article, Process Street will expound on the main causes of data loss, the importance of backing it up, and tips on how you can successfully run data recovery processes.

This article has been broken down into the following sections.

Choice Architecture Explained: How To Remove Human Bias From Your Business Today

choice architecture explained how to remove human bias from your business

How rational do you think you are?

According to Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein, the answer is not very.

Thaler and Sunstein were pioneers who developed the choice architecture framework. According to them, humans are prone to hundreds of proven biases causing us to both think and act irrationally.

For our prehistoric ancestors, these biases saved time and cognitive effort. In our modern-day, business world, however, cognitive bias can impose significant drawbacks. Choice architecture is a framework that acts to prevent the negative repercussions of cognitive bias.

In this article, before we do anything, we will time-hop backward to discover the history of choice architecture. From knowing this history, we at Process Street will reveal what choice architecture is.  We will then consider the elements (common human biases) that the choice architecture framework acknowledges.

Finally, we examine the challenges choice architecture faces and ways those challenges can be resolved through the use of checklists as an alternative method. We will show you how you can use Process Street for free, along with choice architecture, to remove the negative repercussions human bias presents. Just read through the sections below:

Google Chrome is by far the most popular web browser with more than a billion users and over two billion installations globally. This is no surprise given the fact that Chrome offers super-fast functions, loading, and web-page display.

Besides that, the platform is free and gives users a number of additional benefits:

  • Easy setup
  • A minimalistic but user-friendly design
  • Simple drag-and-drop features
  • Automatic translations for greater convenience
  • An address bar that supports direct searches
  • A private browsing option called Incognito

The advantages of installing Chrome are evident, but these are not the only reasons to use it. On the contrary, Chrome extensions are yet another detail that makes the platform so useful. The extension gallery contains over 10 thousand tools that can augment and improve the functioning of your web browser.

In this article, Process Street has summarized 30 Chrome extensions that every digital marketer should know and check out. Let’s take a look!

How to Use Your Personal Branding Profile to Drive B2B Leads

personal brandingThis is a guest post from Oren Greenberg, a growth marketer and founder of the Kurve consultancy in London. He helps startups and corporate innovation projects scale using digital channels. He has written for leading marketing blogs and has been featured in the international press.

A business is an abstract entity, which is brought to life by its people. Every team member has a part to play in representing their organization – not in the sense of blindly flying the flag or sacrificing their own identity, but in the sense of owning their area of expertise and sharing their deepest knowledge.

These days, it’s normal for a business leader to build their own personal brand. These are the “thought-leaders” we hear about so often. But I believe that too many organizations stop here, and miss the chance to create a team of people who all have strong personal brands.

In turn, I believe this limits the opportunity to build credibility, reliability, and authority – three of the key considerations for B2B buyers.

So, the tactics I discuss in this Process Street article are designed to apply to team members at every level of the hierarchy. They are suitable for business leaders, but also for executives and junior staff.

What is CRO? How to Increase Conversion Rates (Free Template)

What is CRO?

You may remember from Latin 101 at college that conversiō is the process of turning around, altering, changing, or converting.

And whether you’re now a WeWork-dwelling solopreneur or a newly-hired marketer at an SMB, it’s crucial for your leads to undergo conversiō.

After all, without conversions site visitors aren’t as likely to sign up to newsletters, put an item in a cart, or proceed to the checkout page and order that product or service. Conversions, therefore, are a major contributor to your business’ longevity.

This could be the point where you’re frantically thinking: “I want to secure my business’ longevity! How can I help facilitate conversions? And how can I optimize conversion rates for the better?!”

Slow down.

We’ve got you covered.

During this post we’ll be explaining all things CRO – conversion rate optimization.

First we’ll tackle what CRO is, then we’ll delve into an actionable framework for increasing your conversion rates, and then we’ll provide you with a Process Street-made template which has everything you need to hike those conversion rates up!
