Do You BackUp?

Data backup is critically important to business success. And yet, too many small business owners don't think about it until it's too late! Imagine needing a document or file and not being able to get your hands on it because of a computer problem.

A couple of years ago I was working on an article and my computer froze. I had to take it back to factory settings to get it to work again. If I hadn't been backing up my files I would have lost everything I had created and been working on. That could have been disastrous for my business.

 How many times have we heard about viruses infecting a company's computers and wiping out their files. Besides the challenges of being without critical data the time it can take to recreate those files can be expensive and daunting. Thankfully, it’s easy to avoid this problem if you back up your computer to either an external hard drive or off-site to the cloud.

The folks over at SingleHop have created an infographic to help highlight the issues lack of data recovery systems can cause. 
So, what are you doing to secure your precious data? How are you ensuring you have what you need when you need it?
