World Backup Day Is March 31st!
World backup day happens every 31st March and showcases the importance of businesses regularly backing up their data.
Ok, so maybe it is just another made up “day”, but it does come with a serious message, supported by some alarming statistics…
- 30% of people have never backed up their data.
- 113 phones are lost or stolen every minute.
- 29% of all data related ‘disasters’ are caused by accident.
- 1 in 10 computers are infected with viruses each month.
It’s recommended that everyone, no matter if they are a business owner or not, should backup their data once a day in case of these incidences.
What Would You Or Your Business Do If You Suddenly Lost Important Files / Documents?
Think about the files you have open on your PC right now. If you lost them, would you or your business be in trouble?
How much data would you have to lose before it began to hurt your business? The answer is not very much. Depending on what files are lost, it could only take a file or two to cause you serious problems.
Not losing critical data is an easy business reason to make sure that you’re backing up your files. But as the statistics indicate, most people don’t.
