In a world where ransomware, viruses, and other major threats are running wild, do you have a disaster recovery plan in place for your business? 

It is now more important than ever that you have backups running in your business. With so many nasty things infecting and invading businesses worldwide, backups are the key to avoiding detrimental loss in your company. You should be backing up everything from emails to your most precious files and data. I cannot stress enough the importance of doing as many backups as you possibly can in your business. Yeah, it may seem like a pain now, but when you get hit with Ransomware you will be so happy that you decided to maintain good backups.

Ransomware is on the rise and it is destroying many company's data.  "Ransomware is a type of malware that attempts to extort money from a computer user by infecting or taking control of a victim’s machine or the files or documents stored on it. Typically, the ransomware will either lock the computer to prevent normal usage or encrypt the documents and files to prevent access to the saved data.

• Prevents you from accessing Windows and other devices.

• Encrypts files so you can’t use them.

• Stops certain apps from running."   - Ransomware: All Locked Up and No Place To Go. E-book by Kaspersky Lab. 


The solution? I will say it again: BACKUPS. Start today. Get a backup solution for your company before it is too late. Develop a disaster recovery plan so that when the unexpected hits, you will be ready. You won't lose your data. You won't have to panic when you get hit with malware. You won't have regrets. Listen, the solution is so simple, and yet SO MANY PEOPLE ARE NOT UTILIZING BACKUPS! So many businesses could have saved so much time and money if only they were implementing backups. Make the smart choice today and get those backups running.
