World Backup Day
Work Backup Day is an annual global event that was created to remind consumers to back up their most important digital files. The event, celebrated on 31st March each year, also serves as an important reminder for businesses to ensure that they have a strategic backup plan in place.
Did you know…
- 83% of people own a computer and 89% own a mobile phone, yet only 1 in 4 people make regular backups
- A staggering 30% of people have never backed up their devices
- 64% of data loss is due to human error
- More than 60,000,000 computers will fail worldwide this year
So as today is World Backup Day, we’ve put together some top tips about keeping your data backed up and secure.
What is a backup?
A backup is simply a second copy of all your important files. Instead of storing all of your data in one place, you keep a duplicate in a safe place.
Have you ever lost valuable data? In today’s tech-reliant world, data is one of the most valuable business assets. Computer hardware can fail and systems can be corrupted, which could cause data to be lost. Lost data can be damaging both financially and to your reputation as a business, so your systems need to be backed up frequently.
