World Backup Day

backupMarch 31st is World Backup Day.  On my way to the office today I saw someone driving down the highway in reverse. Not completely clear on the concept.

It has been three months since you made your New Year’s Resolution to really backup you data this year for sure!!  Still kicking this one down the road?  Well today is your day.  Sign up for something easy like Carbonite and be done with it already.

One of the most important security practices a small company can engage in is having an effective, and automatically scheduled backup program.  That way you have copies of your important documents to restore from after you get a case of CryptoLocker, or your hard drive crashes, or you have a fire, flood, or weather event that takes out your location.

Good ahead and backup something and enjoy your day!
