March 31st is World Backup Day. It is important to understand the benefits of a robust backup plan for your business to enhance productivity. However, the current COVID-19 scenario and the business interruptions make backup more crucial than ever before.  

Here, Phoenix IT services company explains the importance of backing up your data to avoid any business disaster.

What Do You Mean by Business Disaster?

Any event that disrupts normal processes is known as a business disaster. Even the Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted the normal business workflow. Though the focus has now shifted to public health issues, you shouldn’t exclude non-health issues from the category of business disaster.

Other than Covid-19, the term “disaster” can include:

  • Natural disasters:
    • Fires
    • Storms
    • Floods
    • Tornadoes
    • Earthquakes
    • Blizzards
  • Criminal acts:
    • Hacking
    • Hardware theft
    • Ransomware
    • Sabotage
  • Human error:
    • Deleted data
    • Unsaved files
    • Unauthorized shutdowns
    • Lost/damaged devices

If your business experiences substantial data loss, it should be viewed as a disaster. Therefore, you need to prioritize your backup and business continuity strategies.

What is Business Continuity?

Business continuity is the ability of your business to continue an acceptable level of operations, despite roadblocks. For instance, in the light of the prevailing pandemic, most business operations managed to resume a smooth process online. Most workers collaborate from home with no substantial productivity loss.

Your business may not always require a backup, but a backup is helpful during emergency purposes.

For example, the work from home option helps your business processes hassle-free. Even if employees are working from the confines of their homes, they can ensure heightened work productivity. There are many ways to accomplish a remote work-from-home scenario, but the cloud is the best bet as it cuts down your hardware infrastructure costs.

Why opt for a cloud solution? 

You can ensure secure and convenient access to data using any authorized device with the cloud. Furthermore, an offsite cloud can protect your data from the numerous threats mentioned above. If you face any threat mentioned above, your business can easily implement additional measures.

Remember, both health and non-health crises can seriously impact your business. You need to be prepared well-beforehand to handle the situations with ease.
