Backing up critical data has been one of the longest standing but most often overlooked strategies. With a wealth of options to choose from, we have no excuses to not backup our most valuable asset: information. Many media types are available along with cloud options. Enterprise may consider hosted solutions and disaster recovery sites. Planning is essential. Make sure crucial data is included as new systems come online and data stores are moved. Include backups of network devices. Avoid storing corporate data on local computers. Regular testing and annual disaster recovery exercises are obligatory. Remember backing up your personal data.
