World Backup Day falls on March 31st this year, providing organisations a crucial chance to bolster their data protection through enhanced recovery and ransomware defences. A single mishap can potentially erase vital information. In fact, statistics reveal that 29% of data loss incidents are caused by accidents, highlighting the need for robust backup practices. Moreover, 21% of individuals have never taken the initiative to back up their data, underscoring the importance of proactive measures to safeguard valuable information.

It is important to use this occasion to ensure that your backup methods are robust and comprehensive in order to safeguard your critical data from potential threats such as hardware failures, accidental deletions, and cyber security risks.

Here are key tips to keep in mind:

  1. Adhere to the 3-2-1 rule: Maintain three copies of your data on two different storage media, with one copy stored offsite for redundancy.
  2. Implement automated backups to ensure regular and hassle-free data backups.
  3. Regularly test your backups to verify their functionality and ensure data recovery in emergencies.
  4. Encrypt sensitive data backups to prevent unauthorised access.
  5. Utilize a mix of local and cloud backups for added security and resilience.

Following these best practices ensures the safety and security of your data, allowing for quick recovery in case of any data loss incidents. It’s important to note that accidental deletions on cloud storage can impact all devices, highlighting the necessity of maintaining a physical backup of your cloud data.
