With everything it takes to keep your operations running smoothly daily, it could be easy to place backup and disaster recovery of your data on the backburner. However, a cyberattack or natural disaster could prove fatal to your business without a proper recovery plan in place, so a backup and disaster recovery plan should be top of mind – especially as cybercrime continues to skyrocket across the board. 

Today, let’s review the top reasons to back up your data: 

  • Simple recovery – Be sure to take frequent incremental snapshots of your systems. You can restore to a snapshot taken before a breach of your infrastructure occurred. You also can recover a file from a time before it was deleted.  
  • Ease of management – When restoring lost data, ease of management creates consistencies in the processes for backing up data and information. It avoids end users backing up their own devices inconsistently and irregularly.  
  • Maintain compliance standards – By collecting and preserving critical data through regular backup processes, IT departments are ready to respond to requests from legal departments and auditors.  
  • Competitive advantage – If a disaster were to strike, the first organization to get back up and running will scoop up the business from those who struggle to recover in time. Without a backup and recovery plan, an unprepared company could shut down for good.  
  • Zero to limited impact on performance – Users often do not realize a solution for backups is running in the background. Fewer disruptions to users means more uptime and productivity.
