The Importance of Data Backup To Your Business
Whether your business is a small startup or a fast-growing large organisation, keeping your data safe is essential. Losing business data can cause significant damage, as well as costing a lot of money to solve an issue. A lot of businesses these days use online data backup for protection in order to ensure valuable information is secure from theft or damage as well as being safe from natural disasters.

The amount of data your business stores will increase along with the growth of your company and you need to be able to deal with any data loss quickly and effectively. Data loss can occur for a number of reasons, from human error to hackers, power shortages to fires. You should choose a suitable database backup system to prevent any potential data losses.

Here are some of the most important benefits data backup provides to a business.

Protection
Online backup systems such as cloud storage provides users with additional protection to ensure data is safe from natural disasters and other events. By providing different protection features such as automated backup and comprehensive file management, a system can automatically grow storage and backup without needing to be done manually. For growing businesses who will be producing an increasing amount of data, cloud storage work with your business to manage and protect all your data and continue to enhance when required.

Save Money
Small and growing businesses might not have the same level of data as established organisations but they can be just as vulnerable to data breaches. A single attack on a new business can be catastrophic if the correct protection steps haven’t been taken. Because online data backup come at a fraction of the cost of setting up an individual system, the price is another appealing factor for new businesses looking to stay protected without a significant investment.

Reputation
If a business doesn’t have an effective backup solution, there is a very real risk of their reputation and credibility being damaged – potentially even leading to legal action should a data breach occur. For those organisations responsible for storing information regarding customers or staff members, security isn’t something that can be overlooked and this important data needs to be properly protected against any threat.

Successful Restoration
Even in the event of a virus attack, power outage or any other malfunction, being able to restore your data quickly and efficiently immediately after an incident can be essential to a business avoiding any downtime. A data backup system needs to be both easy to implement and simple enough to retrieve data in order to get your business back up and running.

Microsoft Urge Users to Update Following Attack
Microsoft have urged their users to take precautions following a massive cyber-attack that saw the NHS join a host of huge institutions around the globe targeted by a sophisticated ransomware virus. Hitting 150 countries worldwide, more than 150,000 victims have fallen foul of this intricate virus, most notably the NHS; affecting hospitals, GP surgeries and pharmacies.

In the face of this sophisticated and large scale attack, Microsoft have been quick to warn users to update their systems to the latest version of their software. The company released a Windows security update in March in a bid to avoid such a virus, but a number of users are still yet to update their systems, inadvertently leaving themselves open to an attack.

For businesses, having a secure and reliable security system in place for networks, data and devices is crucial to staying safe and minimising the chances of being the victim of a cyber-attack.

A statement from Microsoft president and chief legal officer Brad Smith said: "As cybercriminals become more sophisticated, there is simply no way for customers to protect themselves against threats unless they update their systems."

As well as warning customers to keep their software up to date, Microsoft have also criticised governments for the method they store up information about security flaws in computer systems. The ransomware locked users' files and demanded payment in order to allow access again, quickly spreading to 150 countries, including Russia, the US and China.

As well as the NHS, courier giants FedEx and Spain’s main telecoms operator were also victims of the attack, Windows-based systems were 'experiencing interference' due to malware and that it was trying to fix the issue as quickly as possible. The team here at Konnetix have a record of helping businesses stay safe from cyber attacks, minimising the risk of disruption and financial loss as the result of cybercrime.

The virus, known as Wanna Decryptor or WannaCry, is believed to have already generated over £20,000 for the hackers, who are expected to continue to attack vulnerable users. While the NHS has been quick to tighten security and attempt to get their systems back up and running, this incident highlighted the importance of cyber security to big organisations as well as smaller businesses.

Cuba finally opens its doors to foreign internet

Google has officially become the first ever foreign internet company to launch its services in the communist country of Cuba, raising hopes that the often-isolated nation is beginning to open its doors to the rest of the world. Google made history when they recently opened a new data centre in the country, where it will now be able to store information such as popular YouTube videos and social media sites.

After spending so long cut off from the rest of the world, Google’s introduction into Cuba is a positive sign that some modernisation is taking place while the population are being given greater access to information. Now able to access Google’s services due to the on-island servers, Cubans will now have much better internet at their disposal after having to settle with getting their internet from a submarine cable run from Venezuela.

As well as the improved speed, Cuba’s inhabitants will also be able to access content such as traffic-intensive videos and downloads – which had been very tough to do before Google’s arrival. The internet giants revealed their plans last year, claiming the Cuban people "can expect to see an improvement in terms of quality of service and reduced for cached latency". 

For a country that has had state controlled restricted internet for as long as the internet has been around, Google’s arrival in Cuba, firstly in 2014, is an exciting development for the country as well as the technology world. As it stands, only 5% of Cubans currently having access to the internet, with 240 public Wi-Fi spots charging $1.50 per hour with internet cafes costing $4.50 an hour. Those prices could come down now, though, and the internet is becoming a more important part of Cuban life.

It now remains to be seen whether we’ll see Google in the world’s only other major communist state: North Korea. We won’t hold our breath for that one.
