World Backup Day is not about just one day, it is about reminding people to care for their personal and business information all year around.

Regardless of the type of data lost, whether it’s family photographs from that one summer or sensible corporate files, losing it doesn’t only tax in emotions but could result in devastating financial setbacks.

While backing up the family album on an external HDD or the cloud is usually enough, corporate data management requires way more redundancy. The risks of DDoS and other attacks is increasingly higher with 94% of companies suffered critical data loss going out of business. For those who manage to remain afloat, the EMC’s Global Data Protection Index informs that the yearly cost of data loss is $1.7 trillion worldwide.

Don’t wait for the worst to happen, be proactive and evaluate the organization and security of your data. Research the possible security measures and start backing up now.
