March 31st is the official World Backup Day, which is a day all about reminding us to back up our important files. This day is not only a critical reminder, but we hope that you’re backing up your data every single day (not just one day a year). Today, we’re going to discuss how to backup your data in the most secure and effective ways.

What Lessons Should We Take from World Backup Day?

World Backup Day stands for normalizing data backup, emphasizing the importance of backing up, and teaching better backup strategies. To do this, we’re going to go over the 3-2-1 Backup Rule.

The 3-2-1 Backup Rule

Here’s how it goes:

  • You should always have three copies of your data. One copy is operational (aka the one you work from) and the other two copies are backups. 
  • Your backups should be stored away from your functioning data, on two different storage mediums.
  • One copy should be stored offsite, on the cloud.

We Can Help

Setting up backups can be difficult and time-consuming, so let the professionals help you out. Give MyTek a call today (or on March 31st) so we can discuss your backups and options at 623-312-2440.
