Data is the biggest asset your company has. Your intellectual property, company finances and history, marketing plans and inventory levels are all stored in memory somewhere on premise at your company. What happens if the proverbial bus comes? If there is a storm, a fire, or if someone forgets to do your server backup and then lightning strikes – your company could be in trouble.
March 31st was “World Backup Day” – who knew such a holiday existed? In his “30% of Data Backup Disasters are Caused by Accidents article in Fosters.com, MJ Shoer writes, “World backup day is a private initiative that seeks to create the awareness of the importance of data in our lives. Because of this, backup is no longer a luxury, it’s an absolute must to protect our digital filing cabinets, … document management systems, databases and more.”
Backing up your data can been done in a variety of ways, but whether you use tapes, USB drives, or offsite data storage solutions, you need to make sure that your data is offsite, and in a safe place.
In his article, MJ Shoer shares that:
- More than 100 mobile devices are lost or stolen every minute
- One in ten computers is infected with some kind of virus or malware
- 30% of people have never backed up their devices
- 30% of data backup disasters are caused by accidents
