If you’re taking data seriously in your business, you’ll have a robust constant backup process, that stores multiple copies of all your data safely and securely in the cloud.

When did you last check your backup?

If you’re taking data seriously in your business, you’ll have a robust constant backup process, that stores multiple copies of all your data safely and securely in the cloud.

This can be a lifesaver in many situations:
• If your data is corrupted
• If someone accidentally
deletes something
• Or even if you lose a device

But when did you last check that your backup was actually working? That it’s correctly backing up your data exactly as it should be? You’d be surprised how often backups fall over… and no-one is alerted. Or they are alerted, but don’t take action to fix the problem fast enough. This is why we verify our clients’ backups on a daily basis.

If you haven’t checked your backups for a week or more, then you could be setting yourself up for a big problem. Because the worst time to find out that your backup hasn’t been working is when you actually need it. And sadly, we’ve heard of this happening more than a few times. Very easily, a business can lose a week or month’s worth of work… it’s a genuinely traumatic event. So check your backup today to keep yourself covered.

Is there a hidden intruder lurking in your business?

You might think that hackers won’t target your business. But actually, you’d be surprised. Cybercriminals are targeting businesses exactly like yours all the time. Because often, small and medium-sized businesses don’t spend big bucks on their cyber security. Hackers know this. And will put a lot of effort to try to exploit that.

We’re seeing a rise in ransomware attacks. This is a computer attack where a hacker locks you out of your systems and data. And you must pay a ransom, typically in Bitcoin, to get access again. While it’s not a new crime, it’s one of the fastest-growing crimes online. Reality check: This kind of attack can cripple your business.

Can we offer your business a breach detection review?

During the review, our specialists can carry out a detailed network check to detect if there has been any unauthorised activity. And give you advice for preventing this kind of attack in the future.
