Regularly backup critical data

Consider implementing a data backup strategy to help safeguard against cyberattacks. Data backups play a fundamental role in both cyberattack prevention and recovery efforts as they provide a reliable means of restoring lost or corrupted data, minimizing downtime and facilitating operational continuity — among other organizational benefits.

Companies benefit from storing backups in geographically diverse locations and/or utilizing cloud-based services with strong security measures to mitigate the risk of physical damage to the associated hardware.

Data backups are more than just rainy-day plans; they’re prevention and recovery superheroes. In the unfortunate event of a cyberattack, ransomware lock-in, or even accidental data deletion, backups provide a reliable way to bounce back quickly and minimize damage. They’re like having a magic “undo” button for your digital world, ensuring business continuity and minimizing downtime.
