For any organization, data plays a major role in its day-to-day operations. Be it data on employees or revenue, companies must create smart backups for their organizational data.

Once data is lost, destroyed or stolen, you might have to spend billions of dollars recovering it. Having backup of your original data enables you to restore it when something goes wrong.

If you are developing a computer backup plan for your organization, here are the most important things to consider:

Storage

For starters, regardless of the kind of files and data you’re storing, make sure your backup plan has enough storage. You need substantial storage to save documents, photos, videos, etc.

Automated

Generally speaking, you can backup your data online or offline. Many people use an external hard drive for data backup. Although it is easy and convenient to use, you might lose all your data if it’s destroyed.  

Online or automated backup, such as cloud-based storage is better than manual backup. With an online backup service, you can backup your computer data automatically anytime. Secondly, your backup system will automatically upload information to the cloud at a designated time. As a result, this will protect your data from hackers and data loss.

Security and Speed

Finally, your backup plan must be equipped with cutting edge security tools to protect your data from hackers. When searching for a backup system, make sure it also encrypts all the stored information.

In addition to speed, find out the upload and download times of the backup system. This is particularly crucial for those who share large files across employees in the organization.  

Keep in mind, large presentations, reports or videos require a lot of space in order to be shared quickly. Therefore, your backup system should deliver and share data with minimal amounts of bandwidth.
