It’s easy to keep your business operational, if your data is safely stored and recoverable!
Data backup is one of the most important security measures you should have for your business and yet we find it is also one of the most ignored. ‘Backing up’ means making a copy of your most important files; this can then be used if the original copy is lost. Preferably the second copy should be held at a different location to the original and be kept in a secure environment. It should be a key part of your disaster recovery plan that is FAST, SECURE and RELIABLE.
Data loss can happen in many ways, the most common causes are physical failure of your PC, accidental operator error, theft or disasters like fire, flood and even spilt drinks at your desk. Computer viruses and computer hackers can also pose a threat by damaging your systems and corrupting your data files. Many businesses save their information to just one place like ‘My Documents’ on their PC’s hard drive or a USB device to use between the PC in the Office and the laptop at home. It is only when a problem occurs, and you’re sat having lost critical business and customer details does the real importance of investing in data backup become a lesson ‘hard learnt’.

Data loss can happen in many ways, the most common causes are physical failure of your PC, accidental error, theft or disasters like fire, flood and dropped coffee mugs! It is also common for data to be saved to just one place, like ‘My Documents’ on your PC’s hard drive. Which means that if this data were to be accidentally changed or deleted it would take considerable time and expense to restore it.
Growing numbers of computer viruses are also a risk to business information, as once they have infected your machine they often delete or corrupt your data. This is another reason why backing up your data is such an important thing to do.
