Business Backups....Most Definitely!
Data backup is a process of duplicating data to allow retrieval of the duplicate set after a data loss event. They are the foundations of any disaster recovery plan. Data Backups ensure that data is secure and that critical information is not lost in a natural disaster, theft situation or other kind of emergency.
It doesn’t matter how big your business is, regular backups are essential in securing your company’s data. No matter what your security strategy is, regular backups ensure that you always have clean, safe data to enable your company to operate in case of data loss.
Not backing up your data could cost you serious amounts of money!!
Practically all businesses today rely on a computer or a network of computers, the loss of your company data could have a serious financial effect on your business.
When important documents and files are lost, companies must spend valuable time and resources on recreating or recovering the information lost.
Ransomware attacks are on the up! It is reported that last year attacks on UK businesses soared by nearly 200%.
Backups are an essential part of any disaster recovery plan, in the event that a company is hit with ransomware, it can simply use its last backup to recover the system.
Its good to remember that all businesses, no matter what size are open to a variety of ransomware attacks. Smaller businesses are often targeted due to the lack of security.
