Don’t Be Left A Fool This World Backup Day

Don’t Be Left A Fool This World Backup Day

posted in Backup & RecoveryCyber-Security ● 29 Mar 2018

Saturday March 31st, 2018 is World Backup Day – a celebration and awareness day for one of the most critical IT strategies that modern organisations must implement. With growing data sets, complex environments, data protection laws that can be difficult to understand and a host of cyber-threats, backing up data is more important than ever. Timing is everything and there’s no time like the present to ensure your backup regime is the ideal fit for your data protection regime. Don’t be left an April fool unable to restore critical data in the event of a disaster or loss.

Data backup is the process of taking a copy of data at a fixed point in time and storing it for a set time frame (retention) in an alternate location to its original source.

Historically implementing a new backup regime involved complicated set ups, hardware installations and days, if not weeks, of training. The rise of cloud has led to innovations in backup technology, allowing organisations to launch easily accessible cloud platforms. Cloud backups are not only quicker to implement but can be costed on a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) model, meaning organisations only pay for what they use while retaining the ability to easily scale data volumes up or down over time.

Only fools don’t backup

Data protection is at the forefront of the minds of many IT staff thanks to the impending arrival of the GDPR. The General Data Protection Regulation is an update on current data protection laws that aims to strengthen the protection of data across most of Europe; the regulation will require IT teams to be able to demonstrate data protection processes and while backup is not implicitly mentioned in the regulation, it is strongly alluded to.

Data loss and breach have been a constant for journalists over the last few years, with global powerhouses making headlines for all of the wrong reasons after losing customer and employee’s personal data. These negative headlines have caused reputational damage and the breaches have resulted in fines for non-compliance with data protection laws being issued.

The recent Facebook scandal involving Cambridge Analytica wiped around $60 billion from their stock value.

Cyber-threats such as Ransomware are still on the rise and with ransoms of up to $1,000,000 being demanded, organisations need to ensure they can recover data rather than paying cyber-criminals. By implementing a secure, off-site backup an organisation can simply recover data to any infected systems.
