Your law firm’s data is valuable. Are you doing all you can to protect it?
Although frequent data backups are common in law firms, there is a misconception that data is safe if backed up once a day. This outdated practice is no longer sufficient for several reasons:
If you forget to perform your backup or the backup process fails, you’re not protected.
If you only back up your files once a day, you’re still vulnerable to the loss of an entire day’s work.
If you don’t properly validate your backup files, you could be in for a very unpleasant surprise when you actually try to use those files to restore your practice’s operations.
If you only back up your files on-site, you could lose them, too
If you only back up your raw data, rather than all your application and server configuration files, it could take you several days to restore your practice to a fully operational condition—because you will also have to rebuild your servers, operating systems, applications, etc.
If backing up once a day isn’t the answer, what is?
