Every Day Should Be Backup Day

Stop and think about all of the critical data that is riding on your network. For example, you have important files on your customers. You have sensitive internal financial data. You have notes on your competitors, trade secrets and much, much more.

Now, imagine a hacker breaks into your network, places a hold on a critical set of files and demands a massive ransom in order to get it back. Or, suppose a laptop containing sensitive information is lost or destroyed.

Unfortunately, many businesses and individuals would be at a complete loss if faced with these types of predicaments because they don’t back up their critical information. That is, they don’t copy or archive sensitive information and store it offsite in a secure location.

Back on May 31, the technology industry celebrated World Backup Day—a day when all businesses are encouraged to set aside time to back up their critical data. Here at Apex Technology Services, premier computer consultants serving Fairfield County and New York City, we think World Backup Day is a great idea, but we want to push it a step further.

Every day should be backup day.

The fact is that if your business is not currently backing up its information, it is taking a major risk. So don’t let another day go by with your sensitive data in jeopardy. Back up your data now!

BUT, don’t attempt to do it yourself (DIY), as this could be adding risk to your network. Many businesses perform DIY data backups only to discover their mistakes when disaster strikes. Contact Apex today for expert advice to guide you throughout this tricky process.
