Data backup – Why is it important for your business?

Some of you may be aware and some may not that data/information is one of the most valuable assets in your business. In today’s world, most of the businesses heavily depend on computers and technology and almost all of their information such as financial information, HR information, and a lot of other information is stored on computers or servers locally or on cloud.

If you are a business owner or a manager, one of the most important question you should be asking yourself is, “Can I afford to lose all or part of this data/information stored on your computers?”. I believe the answer is “NO”.

When it comes to medical sector, medical centres, dental clinics, radiology centres and ultrasound centres are supposed to retain their patient’s information up to a certain period by the Australian law. Therefore, why is it important to backup data? It is the above-mentioned reasons.

Data loss can happen unexpectedly at any time due to many reasons such as, computer crashes, physical hard drive damage/failure, theft, virus attacks such as ransomware and etc.

How can you backup your business data/information?
