IT Support: When Did You Last Check your Backup?

IT Support: When Did You Last Check your Backup?

Here’s one of my favorite questions to ask business owners: when did you last check your backup was working properly? Is your IT Support consistent and reliable?

It never fails to amaze me that most people can’t give me a good answer.

The scary part is – the very worst time to find out your backup hasn’t been working is when you need to use it. After you suffer a ransomware attack, for example.

Then what do you do? You’ve essentially lost everything. This type of situation will put you in between a rock and a hard place. After losing everything, your business is in jeopardy. Our IT support can help you prevent that from happening by adding the necessary protection and security.

And although you may be confident in your security measures to protect you from attack (please never be too confident, nothing will keep you 100% protected), there are other reasons you may rely on your backup, too.

  • What happens if you accidentally delete important files?
  • Or your website is corrupted?
  • Or there’s a fire at your office?

Any one of these scenarios is a real (if rare) possibility. It is better to be safe than sorry. It would give you true peace of mind to know that at least your data is backed up by our trusted IT support anytime you need it.

So, if you do one thing today, check your backup. Please.
