Data security tips for homeownersAugust 8, 2022
Data loss happens but it doesn’t have to be a catastrophe, especially if your business is using quality backup solutions.
Data loss can happen for a number of reasons: Your hardware fails, human error, a natural disaster or fire, or a cyber attack or phishing scam. Regardless of the reason, backup solutions mean less downtime – protecting your sensitive data.
Here are some backup solutions for your business to consider.
External hard drive
This is a simple solution and it’s been around for a while. In fact, you might have an external hard drive backing up your data at home (if you don’t, you should!). An external hard drive is a great way to back up your data and it’s good for small companies that may not be able to afford pricier options.
You can get external hard drives in different sizes, depending on your needs. You’ll just need to make sure you – and everyone who works for you – is doing back-ups regularly. And keep your external hard drive in a safe and secure location!
Smaller and portable, USB drives offer backup solutions to those who don’t need to store a large amount of data or files. They are compact and easy to transport and they work with PCs and Macs. They can be lost – and they fill up fast – so they really aren’t a great long-term solution.
One of the easiest and most secure backup solutions is cloud storage. You might have this on your smartphone or home network already.
Cloud storage simply means your data is backed up online – or in the Cloud. This option can be pricey but it is generally simple once it’s up and running and you can access your data and files from anywhere with an Internet connection.
It also allows files to be shared – crucial for remote work.
And many cloud providers offer top-of-the-line encryption and security – keeping your data safe.
