Tropical Storm Beta is making its way through South Texas and it’s highly important to have your crucial business data safe and secured.

neoRhino is here to help keep your business secured as yet another hurricane season rolls through, but you can’t just prepare for one storm. You must be prepared for all of them at any time. And having a closely monitored data backup solution is the key to staying afloat should a disaster strike.

A few notes about data backups you should keep in mind when preparing for a natural disaster:

  • Make sure you know where your data backups are residing and if possible, have a dedicated employee or MSP in charge of managing your backups. This will reduce time spent trying to figure out which backup to use, when was the last update, etc.
  • Utilize the 3-2-1 method of data backup maintenance. Click here for more information about the 3-2-1 Data Backup Technique.
  • Backups serve to recover data after a loss, so it's crucial to have a strategy behind what you choose to backup and how you do it. We recommend having a detailed written policy where every application is backed up, encrypted, and regulated in a set schedule.

  • You also can learn more about Data Backups from our own neoRhino technicians, Sean and Chris, in a video all about backups here.

You can find more information on how to prepare before a storm or hurricane at the National Weather Service website, and we also recommend reading our 10 Steps to Prepare for a Hurricane blog as well to stay prepared.
