In many ways, the data and information that your business possesses is its lifeline. Not only is it the result of the work you’ve already put in to establish a productive working rapport with your clients, but that data can oftentimes be used to get even more actionable info from your client to gain even more of their business. In other words, it should go without saying that the data and information your business handles is of utmost importance. Therefore it should be treated as such lest your business — or your clients’ businesses — suffer the catastrophic consequences of data loss and a failure to have any of it backed up for safekeeping.
What Data Should Be Backed Up?
While it’s important that you have your data backed up, it may not be necessary to have all your data backed up; just the essential data will do, which obviously varies from business to business. Sensitive data and other similarly irreplaceable confidential items such as those pertaining to legal, medical, and financial matters deserve priority and perhaps even an additional layer of security in the form of multiple backup methods to safeguard the preservation of such vital documents.
Using the Cloud to Backup Your Data
While it’s a great idea to backup your local hardware with remote hardware methods in case you suffer data loss at your location due to fire, theft, natural disaster, or hardware failure, it’s also wise to back your data up to the cloud. Even though cloud computing utilizes a remote server (basically, another piece of hardware) that’s still susceptible to the same risks, a remote server with cloud capability provides you with not only the additional security, but the convenience of being able to access your data from anywhere via multiple devices.
