Data Loss: Protect your Business against Data Loss
Data loss can have a devastating effect on your business so protecting against the loss of data by backing up your business’ computers is crucial.
We look at why and how protecting against data loss is so important to your business and offer some solutions.
Saving the important files on your company’s computers by backing them up every day is critical. If you lose the information on your machine and don’t have a copy available, at best this will be extremely frustrating, time consuming and costly and at worst you could potentially lose your business.
The files on your computers are vulnerable and at risk for many reasons, the most common of which are from user error (i.e accidental deletion), viruses, power surges, hardware error, fire, flood and theft.
Any of these can strike at any time, and more often than not they strike “without warning”, consequently it’s important to always have an up to date backup copy of your information available.
As part of your company’s back up procedure you should consider the following 3 areas:
- What information do you need to backup?
- How often do you need to back it up?
- What method of backup will be best for you?
We will address these 3 points in more detail next.
