The New Year typically brings a revised set of resolutions (some from last year too), and an ideal time to revisit your data backup and recovery strategy. In 2018, we obtained and assisted a number of firms who had data backup and/or recovery issues, a number of whom were also hijacked with ransomware & bitcoin payment demands. Data backup is important, but it is sometimes ignored after Day 1. What is being backed up? Is it secure offsite? Can you recover your entire operation? These are just some of the questions. The most important being, how long can your business survive if you were impacted over several hours or days?
Hence, this note, as we simply want to ensure your success in the New Year;
- Ensure you have a proper backup/recovery strategy with multiple recovery points
- Ensure you properly test your backup on a regular basis, so that you can fully recovery from it
- If you need assistance, or simply looking to validate your strategy give us a call
From a low cost Enterprise Offsite Backup Solution to full scale Disaster Recovery RPO/RTO Options, Lanworks suggests you have a strategy in place ahead of time – as downtime and its associated charges, can be costly.
All the Best in 2019
