The Importance of Data Backup in your business

At its core, the backup and recovery process involves creating and storing copies of data that can be used should the original data be lost or corrupted. Having an IT support team put a data backup and recovery plan in place can ensure that should the worst happen, you can keep your day-to-day operations running.

Protection against technological failures

Technology progresses in leaps and bounds, and an innovative piece of tech today can quickly become obsolete. Cyber attacks grow more sophisticated by the day, and even the most powerful antivirus can be fallible in the face of even more aggressive ransomware. As such, it’s crucial that you keep both local and offsite data backups that you can easily access in case of equipment failure, data breach or virus infection.

Contingency against natural disasters

In business operations, data backup and recovery are crucial considerations to prevent massive data loss and a costly recuperation period. After all, disaster may strike anytime and there are uncontrolled natural factors that may cause computer systems to crash. Nature is unpredictable, and no matter how technologically advanced, any hardware won’t be able to protect itself from extreme natural events like flooding or earthquakes. It’s best to have an offsite backup for such emergencies.

The 3-2-1 Backup Rule

As a rule of thumb, it’s recommended that you follow the 3-2-1 method when it comes to data backup: keep three copies of your data using two different storage types and at least one copy must be kept in an offsite location. With the growing popularity and importance of cloud storage, the 3-2-1 rule evolves as well. You can keep three copies on various cloud storage options that should be geographically separate. With the right provider, you can come up with a customised data backup system that will work best for your business.
