Companies keen to ensure their data sets are effectively backed up against any potential future data loss should employ a best practice approach to doing so.
Travis Hampton of The Hosting News stated data recovery can be a costly and time-consuming affair if businesses do not take the time to ensure their systems are properly calibrated to give them the best possible chance for recovery in times of emergency.
As such, he advised companies should now increasingly look to back up their essential data offsite when possible, as well as regularly testing recovery procedures to ensure they are in proper working order.
Other best practice measures to increase chances of success include performing regular routine backups of business-critical data and encrypting all network connections and transactions to ensure remote backups are not exploited.
“A security breach could put your data at risk and you never know when you might need your backed up files to fix the problem,” Mr Hampton concluded.
