Listening or wire tapping over a business network that is secretly stealing business information is called Snooping or Eavesdropping. In order to prevent information loss due to eavesdropping, data must be encrypted before sending, using a pre-shared key, such that only sender and receiver must be able to interpret the information that was sent over the network, even if other unintended parties get access to data, they would not be able to interpret it without the key for decryption.

2. Data Loss due to natural calamities
Natural Calamities are unavoidable, adverse catastrophes may sometimes destroy data stored in servers and data warehouses. To avoid any data loss from natural calamities, there must be data backups or copies of data, always stored in a different geographical location, where such catastrophes are uncommon.

3. Viruses and Spyware
