Backup! Backup!! Backup!!!

A businesses biggest concern when it comes to IT should be the safety of it’s data.  Whilst many businesses operate what they think is a fool proof backup system, unfortunately that is often not the case.  This month we have been both fortunate and unfortunate enough to have been involved in 3 (yes 3!) separate backup/disaster recovery related incidents.  These incidents are once again a huge reminder that we need to educate our clients and local businesses so that they understand the importance of not only having a working backup solution, but having a solution that is monitored and can be tested quickly and easily.
