World Backup Day

Celebrate World Backup Day (March 31) and back up your data today. World Backup Day (#WorldBackupDay) is a day that reminds us to safeguard our digital data, including personal and business websites, photos, and other important files.

From time to time, technology can simply stop working and the data becomes unrecoverable. Whether this happens by way of a broken phone, faulty harddrive or a technical error, it can cause stress and heartache.

We must celebrate World Backup Day, the day when it is appropriate to finish saying, “I’ll do it tomorrow”, and make sure all our precious files are safely stored.

Backing up the data in your computer, phone or server can seem like a chore. But don’t forget to keep it in mind when you promised yourself to store all of those pictures and videos! Now is the time for you to do so! Take advantage of that time and back things up.

What do I do on World Backup Day?

The good news is that useful backups don’t have to consume a lot of time or money.

If you have not done so yet, invest in an external hard drive, USB flash memory drive, or space in the cloud (e.g. Dropbox, OneDrive, or similar).

Ideally, you should back up your data on both a standalone drive (external hard drive or USB flash drive) and a cloud platform for added security.

Now back that data up.

While you’re waiting for your files to transfer, take a moment to plan out your next big data dump. Because one day a year isn’t nearly enough.

Remember: The only backup you will ever regret is the one you didn’t make.

What should I do as a business owner?

Information/data is a valuable source of wealth today, as it offers businesses a path to progress in an increasingly digitized world. Regrettably, hackers are also aware of this, thus leading to increased numbers of data breaches in recent years.

Given the landscape, it’s imperative that businesses and organizations in the UK are prepared to cope with data loss in the event of a successful cyberattack, hard drive failure, or server collapse.

World Backup Day should be a call for all business large or small to examine their backup and recovery plan.
