Protect Your Business Data

Protect DataThe summer after sixth grade, a family from Sugar City, Idaho, moved in with their cousins on my street. They had survived the Teton damn disaster, losing their home and all their belongings. Through this experience, we hear, first hand, the things that were most difficult about such a situation.

Natural disasters hurt not only families, but can devastate businesses. In 1976, protecting all this data was extremely difficult and time consuming. Today, most of our business files are (or can be) digitized. So backing them up and protecting ourselves is just a matter of setting up a reliable system.

There are myriad data storage systems offering services in all price ranges. Take the time today to make sure your invaluable business files (and all the associated work!) are safely archived.

If you have anything in your business that would be difficult or impossible to reproduce, it should be backed up offsite. If the unthinkable happens, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that the rebuilding process will be as smooth as possible.

    This is very important, especially for businesses. I used to work as a customer service rep for a financial software company and we have customers who do not backup their data. Imagine losing those info and having to start over by manually inputting all the data.

    With so many ‘iCloud’ type services available at the moment you’d be crazy not to utilise one of them if you have business information that you simply cannot afford to lose. While some people are a little paranoid about allowing a third party access to their information and data (all be it limited access,) I’d suggest that it would certainly be preferable to losing everything and face closing the business you’ve worked so hard to establish.

    I couldn’t imagine losing all my data, it would just be a nightmare! Ive been thinking about iCloud, but still, its hard for me to trust someone with all of my data.
