The Importance of Testing Your Backups

Most of us don’t think twice about insuring our homes and vehicles in their entirety; it’s considered part of the plan. It’s no different for your organization’s data. What value does your data truly possess if all, or even just part of it, could be gone in a flash?  We all like to think “it won’t happen to me.” But, unfortunately, that’s not the case. Disasters and mistakes happen to businesses every day, even while performing your routine backups.

It’s important to make sure that your data is fully protected at all times. You may think that your data is being backed up, but without proper testing in place, it’s hard to know if the backups are doing their job correctly.

You should think of your data backups in two different ways: backing up your data and routinely testing your backups. Creating a standardized and repeatable way to test your backups gives you the peace of mind that they will work properly when it matters.
