London – 12 April 2011 – Alarming new research from, Mozy, the world’s most trusted provider of online backup, has found that one in four office workers think purposely breaking their work computer or mobile, or trading it in at a store themselves, is the best way to get a new one, leaving companies not only at risk of losing property but also vital data that keeps them afloat.

Perfect Partnering

Mozy’s due diligence checklist for SMEs

Outsourcing business processes is a growing trend, where many small businesses are choosing to place business-critical operations in the hands of third-party vendors. While the benefits of outsourcing operations such as accounting, marketing, and customer databases are many, caution must be taken to ensure the potential supplier is well prepared for the responsibility of handling such a task. Shockingly, our survey of UK businesses revealed that 80 per cent of respondents don’t take the time to check out their suppliers before they entrust them with their business-critical information and processes. If you are enlisting or are considering enlisting the help of a third party vendor, we recommend you research these ten items before handing over your business-critical operations.

  • Is the company sufficiently insured? Ask to see a certificate of professional indemnity insurance.
  • What’s the company’s credit rating? If the banks don’t trust them with credit, you might not want to trust them with your data, either.
  • Who owns the information that you’re passing to the company? What rights do they have to use that information?
  • What sort of security systems do they have in place to protect your information? Ask to see an information security policy.
  • What are the chances of the company going bankrupt? Do they have sufficient backing to ensure they can ride out a rough patch? You don’t want a supplier going under and leaving you without the support you need.
