Back Up Today So You Won’t Feel Sorry Tomorrow. Are You Ready for This Year’s World Backup Day Celebration?

Have you lost a smart device or some important documents due to a hard drive crash? Don’t be too hard on yourself, data loss is more common than you think.

Over 100 smartphones are lost or stolen every minute, and an estimated 30% of all computers are already infected with malicious software.

However, human error, malicious attacks and physical theft are not the only ways people get separated from their most treasured digital memories. An unfortunate household accident or device malfunction can lead to serious data loss, with little to no chance of ever restoring your work or important files.

Every year on World Backup Day, internet users are reminded of the importance of cultivating strong cyber habits and making digital copies of their most cherished and important files to prevent data loss.

How to start your data backup plan

It’s always a good idea to have at least one copy of your important files stored on a separate device offline. However, the best contingency plan in your data loss prevention strategy follows the 3-2-1 rule:

  • Keep three copies of data
  • Use two different types of storage media
  • Back up one copy offsite

Although it may seem like a lot, you can kick off the data backup process by using a USB or external hard drive to make copies of your videos, photos, documents and other important files.

Your smart device shouldn’t be considered a trustworthy backup solution, as it could easily get hacked or stolen. Opt for a trustworthy cloud storage provider with robust security practices to keep your data safe.

Backing up important documents and data should be frequent. Take the pledge today and spread the news to your loved ones, who may be unaware of the risks of overlooking data backup processes.

“I solemnly swear to backup my important documents and precious memories on March 31.”

That said, why not add a security solution to safeguard your data from cyber crooks and malicious attacks. Check out Bitdefender’s new 3-in-1 security and privacy pack, which not only includes our award-winning Bitdefender Total Security solution, but also a powerful VPN, and an easy way to secure passwords and other sensitive data.
