March 31st is World Backup Day. This annual event was created to raise awareness about data preservation and backups. Even though this may be the day before April Fools, not backing up your data isn’t something to joke about.
Life, mistakes, and disasters happen. Don’t let the lack of backup and the loss of your data be something that harms your business or your personal life. Losing important data is more common than most people think. It’s important to think about the safety of your information. It’s always a good thing to have a backup solution in motion.
Why is it Important to Backup Your Data?
- Keep your files safe. Your files can be important for a variety of reasons, consistently baking them up is a great way to protect them.
- Viruses picked up online can wipe out your computer. If you don’t backup your files that information could be lost forever.
- Business data loss. Imagine how long it would take your business to compile all of the important information it needs to continue if the files were lost.
- Lost, stolen, or damaged. If you no longer have access to your device as a whole, you don’t have access to the files on there either.
When it might rain, it’s good to have an umbrella handy for backup. When it comes to the information of your business, it’s good to have a data backup plan in the works. Backup solutions in a business setting can literally save your business and your reputation.
In 2017, it was reported that 58% of small businesses did not have a data backup plan in action. Another staggering stat was that 60% of small businesses that lose their data shut down within six months! Don’t let that happen to your business.
