World Backup Day – 31 March

This year, World Backup Day falls on a Saturday.  So we are getting in early to remind everyone to check your backup and DR strategies.

The average total cost of a data breach for Australian organisations in 2017 was $2.51 million.

Data is more valuable than ever before. Particularly with recent news filled with ransomware and data breach alerts.

It has never been more important to keep your data, applications and business from falling into the wrong hands, being compromised or simply lost.

Here are some trends that are worth noting on the eve of World Backup Day.

Ransomware

Unfortunately, a ransomware incident can indicate the absence of comprehensive backup strategy, which can make ransomware attacks even more lucrative for attackers.

The impact of ransomware and data-wiping malware can be minimised by making your backup plans a critical component of any Disaster Recovery strategy.

A comprehensive backup solution can protect you against hackers

Whether it’s your computer, phone, tablet, or even an IoT (Internet of Things) device, proper care and safeguard of your connected device can protect you against hacks and data breaches.

Cloud Service Provider to Simplify Backups

Data stored in cloud applications like Salesforce, Microsoft O365 or Google Apps can give you a false sense of security when much of their cloud data and cloud applications are stored and assumed to be protected, when they are not.

With our leading vendors of F-Secure, Sonicwall and Datto, you can arrest assure that your data is not only backed up, but protected from Cyber Criminals.

So use World Backup Day to start or amend backup strategies for your business and employees.

If you don’t have a comprehensive backup and recovery solution in place that protects your business, you need to talk to a TCT Consultant today.
