June 14, 2012

Backup 3..2..1

Don't Skimp on Your Data Backup Solutions

When it comes to technology in your office, performing routine backup is vital in protecting your data.  Losing it can be costly, but also jeopardize your business.  To ensure your patient information is there when you need it, follow this 3, 2,1 strategy to backing up your data.

 

 3

Have three copies of your data (one primary/production copy; two backup copies). Primary data can remain on your computer (production) system for daily use.

 2

Store your backups on at least two different types of media such as hard drives, tape, solid state drives, dvd, cd, etc…

 Tip: www.secondcopy.com is a great software source for automating your backup strategy.

1Store at least one copy of your data offsite. Using cloud services like Dropbox or Mozy is a great online and offsite solution.  A less modern alternative is using a safety deposit box.

 

We hope that these simple solutions will help you protect your data and business.  Remember to update your backup copies on a regular basis to keep the information current.
