The importance of having a backup solution for your company
The loss of information or data can seriously affect any organization, therefore, to avoid scares, it is especially important to have a backup solution for your company.
What is a backup?
A backup is a backup copy of data and information (which can range from original information data to files and documents) that is stored in a safe place, in order to have the information available in case of any eventuality or incident.
Sometimes due to human error (due to distraction or accidentally) we can totally or partially delete important data, in others we can find computer attacks that affect the operation of our system and/or contaminate the information, and in others as causes of force majeure ( fires, floods,…) or the deterioration of the disks used for a long time over time can cause significant data loss in our company.
With a backup or security copy we will be safe from any unforeseen event, since we can quickly restore said information to the last saved version. Hence the importance of having backups on a regular basis, since this will always allow up-to-date information.
How is a backup made?
To perform a backup, the following steps should be taken into account:
- Selection. What information do we want to keep: irreplaceable information, of great economic value, contacts, files,… .
- Storage. Select the place or system where we want to store the information (in the cloud (cloud computing), in physical devices or in both).
- Update. The frequency with which we will save the information, to have the backup as up-to-date as possible and, thus, the loss of information is minimized.
