Redundancy can be a bad thing in some respects, but it is important to running a successful business. Losing data can hurt a company so backing up your business information is critical. Thankfully with the proliferation of cloud services in recent years, securing data is easier than ever.
Backing your company’s data up in a cloud service is essential nowadays, but there are several factors you have to consider when choosing a cloud service provider. One of the most important things to take into account is the provider’s retention policy. With some providers, once you delete something from the cloud there is no way to access it, meaning if something is accidentally deleted, it is gone forever unless you have an offline backup of the information.
Using cloud services is fine for an individual to back up data, but businesses often need multiple sources for backing up their information. The second aspect of saving your organization’s data is using — and backing up — servers. When you make copies of the information on your servers, it is critical to store them on multiple devices, rather than relying on a single location. Encrypting your backups is another critical piece of the puzzle that is securing and backing up your company’s intel. Frequently backing up your server’s data is also important to make sure your company’s information is still accessible if something happens to your local devices that store the data.
