In the light of World Backup Day, we felt it’s only right to bring awareness to the ongoing issues concerning data loss. We feel the need to share the importance of safeguarding your data and keeping your devices secure.
Throughout the years, many people and organizations struggled with leaks or lost data, resulting in loss of customers, revenue and reputation, not to mention legal consequences. At this day and age, storing data varies from facial recognition thanks to AI and improved technology, to details about your bank account or address, which we don’t want to disclose. Whether you store your personal information, products and projects yet to be released or customer details – you should make sure all of it is properly saved and backed up.
Some of the most memorable breaches due to backup issues, like the UK prison system, where sensitive information about over 80K inmates has been leaked out, still weren’t a lesson for some. Even last year, over a decade after some of the largest data loss incidents, CashApp suffered a breach that resulted in leaking personal details about 8.2 million clients and losing information they won’t be able to get back.
Whether in this form or another, the word “backup” simply should ring a bell to everyone these days. Essentially, it is a process of moving your data to a secure location. As an example, that being an USB stick or a remote server, it is used to store your original data and prevent the possible loss of it. Easily accessible storage is a convenient way for successfully saving and retrieving your data, which is a solid foundation to any online business. Nevertheless, you have to consider that in some cases it can also be accessed by an intruder, that’s why we recommend to distribute your data to a few secure locations.
