What are Backups?
Should you lose access to your company’s data for any reason, a backup can provide you with a copy of your data that can be restored at any point. We strongly recommend all businesses have a reliable, secure way of backing up. Data loss can be very serious, especially in with cyber criminals looking to make money out of any company data they can get there hands on the large fines that can now be enforced following the introduction of GDPR.
An example of data loss could be a PC hard drive or your server failing. Any data created or modified since your last back up will be lost. Backing up regularly should be a key part of every business’ day-to-day planning.
What is Regular Backup?
The honest answer is it depends on your business. The best way to answer how often you should be looking to back up your data would be to think about how far back could your business go any not lose any money or business.
So, if your company suffers a catastrophic data loss and you need to restore from a backup you will need to rewind to a point in time in the past, and starting again from there, without all the work from the meantime.
