Are Your Files Really Getting Backed Up?

For Life Science companies, ensuring data is backed up correctly is critical.

Data is critical for Life Sciences companies. And, business leaders understand that backing up data is important for the health of their businesses. However, I have seen far too many companies that think they are backing up their data, when in reality they are not. How does that happen?

Most life science companies have a backup system in place. Unfortunately, technology fails -- a lot more often than we care to admit. So, if backup jobs are not properly monitored, no one will  notice until it is too late. It’s no fun to find out backups cannot be restored after a computer or server fails.

It is worth investing a little time to make sure your backups are working on a regular basis. It can be as simple as requesting a file from your IT team on a monthly basis. Just be sure you choose a file with dated information in it to ensure the file is up to date.

As with so many IT issues, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
