World Backup Day – Are you backed up?

“World Backup Day” is March 31. Is your business backed up properly?

This weekend is a great excuse to make sure your business data is protected.

Consider, in the last year:

  • 50% of all businesses reported that an employee’s hard drive had crashed
  • 11% had a laptop stolen while on business
  • In 72% of all cases above, the data was not fully recovered.
  • 60% of businesses surveyed do not budget for any form of backup
  • Of those that do, 40% only backup to a single location
  • ~30% of businesses allow employees to select their own method of backup

Backup methods include:

Business Backup Methods

These statistics are from a recent Mozy survey of more than 640 small-to-midsize businesses in the U.S. The survey was conducted by independent research firm Compass Partners – to identify employees and executives’ habits and attitudes about backup and data security. The survey found that a significant number of SMBs don’t implement safe backup strategies – despite well-documented risks for loss of sensitive client and company data.

In a press release issued today, Mozy’s director of product management Gytis Barzdukas suggested: “Professionals should take the following steps to implement backup practices. First, find a secure and reliable cloud service to complement a local backup device, which by itself can easily be destroyed, damaged or misplaced. Second, the offsite service chosen should automatically back up data, be user-friendly and should emphasize data security and privacy through a strong encryption method. Finally, companies should extend backup policies to include strategies for protecting the data on mobile devices, as analysts predict a surge in employees using personal smartphones or tablets for business purposes throughout 2012.”

So be sure to get your business data is securely backed up this weekend!

P.S. While this survey was focused on businesses, personal data also needs protection. And for that we have MozyHome.

Be safe,
