Thursday 31st March 2022 marks World Backup Day. This is one of the most important dates for those in charge of managing your business's IT.
According to a 2021 survey conducted by the UK Government 39% of businesses, and 26% of charities reported having cyber security breaches in the last 12 months. 1 in 5 of these cases ended up losing money, data or other assets.
Businesses rely heavily on critical data to run their businesses. Your data is all the information about your business – for example, financial reports, strategic overviews, sales data, and customer contact information.
There are a variety of factors that can cause data loss:
If you don’t currently have a backup schedule in place, you are leaving your business open and vulnerable. It’s important to determine whether your backup is a manual task such as employees having to press the button and replace physical tape drives everyday or an automated one using backup software that just runs at regular intervals depending on your needs.
This World Backup Day, we recommend using an automated backup method. This allows you to store your critical data in a secure location. We have the flexibility to tailor our backup offering to your business needs, with a lot of options available, including cloud storage.
