World Backup Day 2023

Defend your data against any threats!

A lot has changed in the last year. Organizations have adapted to remote employees and workers being constantly on the move. Businesses increasingly store their data and applications in the cloud while data security regulations and compliance requirements continue to evolve. 

While Ransomware is one of the most dangerous threats and leads to devastating data loss scenarios, it's not the only reason why data may be lost. Human error and hardware failure are actually the top cause of damaged or deleted files, followed by theft, natural disasters, and common accidents - like spilling a drink on top of the laptop.

To avoid serious harm to your business, digital memories, and other important data, you must be able to recover from any of these scenarios quickly. 

For this year's World Backup Day, we have prepared information that helps you build a reliable backup strategy that ensures quick recovery of data and systems in the case of a disaster.

Data Loss Can Happen to Anyone

What you do to get back up and running is the important part.

Cybercriminals have gotten creative with their methods by utilizing social engineering and AI. Ransomware has become far more widespread across the board. Did you know:

Ransomware continued its upward trend in 2022 with an almost 13% increase – a rise as big as the last five years combined.

NovaBACKUP ensures that you can secure and recover your critical data, locally or in the cloud, to get your organization back to full productivity following any data loss event. 

Ransomware is trending
Verify backup restorability

Threats like ransomware and even everyday system updates, installations, and changes are the reason that your backup must be reviewed on a regular basis. There is no better time than now to check:

  • Have you verified backup restorability, and scheduled regular testing?
  • Have all new applications and data sources been applied to your backup plan?
  • Have you conducted a recent review of long-term data storage requirements? 
  • Are you following best practices to backup locally as well as to an offsite location?

A solid backup strategy is crucial to ensure you can restore your data and systems easily in the event of a disaster. 

Tips for Setting Up a Backup Plan to Keep Customer Data Safe

Use these 3 backup tips to improve backup health

1Follow the 3-2-1 rule

You may have seen an extended version of the 3-2-1 rule, for example with a second "1" for a second cloud backup. Regardless of which extended version you use, the basic rule has proven itself over many years and is still used successfully today. It's simple, easy to remember, and ensures an effective recovery. This proven method is recommended for both business and home users:



2Back Up Everything You Care About Regularly

Imagine that you accidentally delete a project you've been working on for weeks, experience a failed hard drive or your computer gets stolen. There are several scenarios in which we can lose data and never recover it. Classifying and prioritizing your data creates a clear roadmap for building your backup and retention strategy. Unsure about scheduling? NovaBACKUP recommends:

  1. Performing an image backup to a local device once per month
  2. A full backup to a local device, as well as to an offsite location, for example, cloud storage, every week
  3. And a differential backup every day as a starting point.

3Automate Your Backup Schedule and Test Your Restore

With NovaBACKUP software, you can schedule your backups to run automatically at your convenience to prevent any disruption to productivity. In addition to automating your backups and monitoring storage space, you should also perform test restores on a regularly scheduled basis. Launch a full restore from start to finish, and you'll have confidence in your data restore reliability.

We tried the restore and boom, it's like it never even happened. This just proves why NovaBACKUP products are essential for disaster recovery and nightly backups. Amazing products and support staff. I give them the highest rating possible"
