How Valuable is Your Data?
Too often, many small businesses rely on an employee to backup data to an external hard drive or burnable CD/DVD. While this backup is better than nothing, it is seriously flawed. Most of the time, the employee forgets to backup the data. Also, the problem with these backup procedures is that if your data is corrupt, you will more than likely overwrite your last good backup with corrupt data during your next backup. Then, when you need to restore good data, there is none.
A surprising majority of small businesses do not have a reliable backup system. Whether it be due to budget constraints of implementing an in-house backup server or just being unsure of how to implement back-ups to avoid disaster, many business owners don’t realize that they are placing their own livelihood in jeopardy every day by not having a secure backup system. Unfortunately, some learn the hard way and only after a disaster understand the importance of safeguarding their business data. Why wait for disaster and pay thousands of dollars for an attempt to recover the data from a failed hard disk when you can protect yourself for as little as a dollar a day?
