Most companies now have staff working from home so the importance of maintaining the integrity of your backup routines is needed more now than ever before.
Data Backups will minimise the risk of losing your company data, which ultimately is vital to the success of your business.
If you’re now working from home and usually use a backup drive in the office which is updated each day – please ensure:
- You are doing as much as you can to maintain your normal backup routines;
- You have one backup drive with you at home (offsite) if you use multiple, preferably the latest;
- You plug one drive into your machine as normal (server / NAS etc) and leave it there if the office isn’t staffed. Syn-Star can manage and clear your available space, if needed;
- If the office is being visited (or staffed) regularly then please swap the drives as normal.
Many of you will already use Cloud-backup solutions, which are going to keep working regardless, but it’s always best practice to have a disconnected (separate) backup to protect against any encryption style ransomware in addition. This will ensure we have at least one copy to restore from if the worst happens. The more current it is, the less data you lose!
If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact our team.
Remember, hackers can work from home too, so always take precautions . . . and always protect your company data.
