If you Backed up Your Business Data, There’s One More Step
Backups are super helpful when something happens to your data. Like when your server goes down at the most inconvenient time (we’ve all been there).
The best thing to do is to make sure your backups are frequent, monitored, and reported.
Let’s say you have a daily backup of your data each day at 11pm. You’ll want to make sure it’s monitored so that you get notified a report (like through an email/text/pigeon carrier) that the backup has successfully completed. Easy, peasy.
This is helpful because then you can catch if your backups aren’t working for any reason. Plus, the more frequent your backups happen the more past data is saved.
So when you ultimately have to use a backup, you can pull a recent version of data rather than a backup that’s from, let’s say, 6 months ago (yikes! Really don’t want to be in those shoes).
