Why is it important to backup your data?
Your organization may have a top of the line computers and equipment, but eventually they’re going to be obsolete and you don’t want lose your data. Even worse, the Internet harbors many potential threats to data. Viruses and trojans don’t just steal data they erase it.
There is also the threat of ransomware. That’s when a hacker puts a virus on your computer that encrypts your data, making it useless. You may have to pay a ransom in order for the hacker to unencrypt your data, with no guarantee that he or she will do so. If you have a current backup of your data, this is less of a worry. You can just wipe your hard drive and restore it to your latest backup.
