1 - Do you backup new and changed data every day.

Businesses

Statistics suggest 88% of businesses DO NOT backup their computer data at the end of the working day. 63% only backup occasionally and about 37% NEVER backup their computer data.

What category are you in ?

Data stored on a computer / computers is a business asset and should be looked after by backing it up every day and storing the backed up data off site.

Personal Computer Users

Statistics suggest 91% of people who use a computer at home for personal use NEVER backup their data.

2: What is data worth to a business or to home computer user.

Businesses

Are you aware every person who use a Computer or Laptop create about 2000 hours of data every year.

Multiply that by the number of employees you have.

Multiplied by their hourly rate.

What is one day,
one week or one months data worth to you?

12 months, 3 years, 7 years later forgetting theft of the computers what if a virus or a power serge destroys one or a number of your computer's hard drives what is going to happen to your business.

Answer...

  1. If you are lucky and have lot of money in the Bank you maybe able to re-build your data but highly un-likely.
  2. If you lost all your account records you don't know who owes you money - probable outcome your business closes and worst case scenario you are placed into bankruptcy.

All because you were too lazy to back up your data on a daily or at least a weekly basis and secure your backed up data in a secure location off site.

Have you backed up your valuable Data today?

If not you risk bankruptcy.

Personal Computer Users

Lets say you use your computer at home to:

Un-like a business that the likely scenario is their business will close and the owner goes bankrupt this won't happen to a home computer user but think about it...

If your computer's hard drive was damaged beyond repair and you lost your family photo's, music collect and other data it may not be a financial loss but it would be devastating loss for you and no doubt your whole family.

Data Backup Safe will secure up to six external hard drives or 52 CD's or DVD's.

3: Businesses and home computer users must have a data backup procedure in place.

Business Owners

No matter how many employees or computers you have YOUR BUSINESS MUST have a written procedure stating:

There is no point backing up your valuable data then leaving it on the desk next to the computer or computers or place the backed up data in an un-locked drawer near the computer / computers. This is foolish but countless numbers of business owners allow their employees to do both.

Home Computer Users

Note: The following also includes a sole business who has a home office.

If you have used a computer for a while you have no doubt been told:

Never leave your backup data in the same room as your computer, the reasons are obvious.

A sole business should have a written backup procedure similar as stated above under Business Owners although it will be different it is important you backup your data regularly and the period of time is the home computer users decision but new data should be backed up at least once a week but preferably every day or every other day.

A word of advice...

A home computer user may have a lot of data eg. pictures, music but do not create a lot of data every day therefore the best backup procedure will be to make a complete backup then every two, three or four weeks make another complete backup. Then after a period of time get the first backup and over write it. This method you are not just backing up individual files you have two or three complete backups.

4: What options are available to protect your backed up data.

Note: The following refers to both business owners, home computer users and sole businesses who have a home office.

You have made the decision to regularly backup your data, that is the first step now you must decide where to keep and protect your valuable backed up data.

Up to 1993 you only had a few choices, the first two are bad ideas and the third would cost a lot of money, for a home user very inconvenient, they are:

Early 1993 an Australian company bought to market the Data Security Safe,
also named:
Data Backup Safe will secure up to six external hard drives or 52 CD's or DVD's.
Data Backup Safe will secure up to six external hard drives or 52 CD's or DVD's.
That is a massive amount of data even for a
medium sized business.

5: Why did we develop the Data Security Safe.

Because up until 1993 the only option to secure backed up data securely was in a Metal Safe specifically made for data as a normal Metal Safe can cause magnetism inside the Safe which in turn will destroy your data.

Data Security Safe is made from Lexan Polycarbonate and designed in two parts:

7: Data Security Safe overview.
