Who among us has not experienced the dread of finishing a big project, only to lose it all in a crash. Sometimes it’s backed up in the background, but sometimes it isn’t, and you simply can’t predict the next crash, shut down or accident that wipes out your data.
Now, imagine this same scenario, on a corporate level. A sudden crash takes this every-day issue we all deal with on a personal scale, and applies it to an entire company. World Backup Day reminds everyone, personal user and IT professional, of the importance of backing up your data.
Who has fallen victim to data breach? Only corporations like Yahoo, eBay, Equifax, Adobe, LinkedIn, Marriot International and Sina Weibo, just to name a few. While most of these corporations were able to pay the massive ransoms, fines and fees associated with their lack of data security, do you believe your business can afford to weather the storm?
What is a backup?
A backup is a copy of important data, be it personal files and photos, or corporate documents and emails, which is stored separately from your original files. With a backup, you can quickly restore all files in the event of a crash or shut-down. Without a backup, losing data without a backup can mean the end of your business.
Why is backing up important?
Worldbackday.com reminds us of several troubling statistics that should resonate with personal PC users and enterprise, alike. 30% of people have never backed up their data, while 113 phones are lost and stolen each minute. Even more troubling, 1 in 10 computers (a lenient estimate) are infected with a virus each month, and 29% of data loss disasters are completely accidental. Meaning a vast majority of data loss could be due to subversive means.
How do I backup?
For personal users out there, the most popular way of backing up is by using the cloud or a simple USB or external hard drive.
