Reliable computer backup is essential in today’s fast-paced business world. Computer data is vulnerable to many risks: data corruption, hardware or software failures, and user error can erase essential information in a flash. Or viruses, malware, and denial-of-service attacks can hold information hostage. Data can even be destroyed through unexpected natural disasters or physical theft of equipment.
However it happens, data loss is a big deal. Hours lost in recovering essential files can set your business back for weeks, damage your reputation with your clients, and cost you money.
Is Computer Backup Really That Important?
60% of companies go out of business within six months of a large data loss incident; 72% of those companies will close within 24 months of the incident. Yet 58% of small businesses are not prepared for data loss. This could mean they do not backup data at all, but that statistic also includes businesses that have incomplete or unreliable backup plans, such as copying data to only one place, storing copied data on the same system as the original data, or relying on employees to periodically backup data.
This is why it’s so important to understand that professional-grade computer backup services include more than simply copying data. Rather, a sound backup plan includes choosing a reliable storage method that keeps your backup data completely separate from your regular system. It also includes deciding how often to backup data and what data to backup. Additionally, testing your backup plan is essential to make sure that your plan is working correctly before there is a disaster. Finally, knowing how to implement the plan correctly in the event of data loss is every bit as important as having a plan.
Because of the complexity involved in developing an effective computer backup plan, many businesses turn this responsibility over to experts with the experience and know-how to get it right when it counts. When it comes to computer backup services, an ounce of prevention is worth many, many pounds of cure.
