In recent weeks, we have talked a lot about backup disaster recovery and how important it is when running a business. We have discussed what a business owner needs to form a solid recovery strategy. We’ve also listed some terrible things that can happen if you don’t protect your business with a good plan for dealing with disasters.
It troubles us that many business owners do not fully understand backup disaster recovery and do not take it seriously. If you want to check your comprehension of this process, you can take this simple quiz we have prepared. It is very informative and reveals important facts about disaster recovery.
A Brief Quiz on Backup Disaster Recovery
The following are ten statements that have to do with backup disaster recovery. Read each one carefully and establish whether the statement is TRUE or FALSE.
- Cyberattacks are no longer as frequent as in previous years, so having a disaster recovery plan for your business data is not important anymore.
- Backup and recovery involve making copies of data and storing them in a safe place where they can be accessed and restored if needed.
- Cloud-based data backup is completely and permanently safe.
- Hiring a professional to back up your data and doing it yourself are equally reliable.
- You can only lose your data if a hacker infiltrates your system.
- Hackers can create a data breach through phishing attacks.
- There is no connection between being hacked and having weak passwords.
- Regularly updated cybersecurity software will protect you from phishing attacks.
- Data encryption is an effective way to protect your data from hackers.
- Implementing multi-factor authentication for all employees can be expensive for your company.
Quite the contrary, cyberattacks are even more prevalent today than ever. There are also many new kinds of attacks that were unheard of as hackers have become more creative as we improve our disaster recovery plan.
Data can be duplicated and stored in as many locations as you want. Usually, there is at least one on-site and one off-site location. Frequent backups are recommended.
It’s safer than a few other types of storage, but cloud backups are still not 100% guaranteed to be safe, especially now that a rising number of cyberattacks are targeting the cloud.
A professionally managed service provider can do so much more to protect and back up your data than you can do on your own for disaster recovery. This protection includes 24/7 monitoring and full restoration in case of a disaster.
There are many ways of losing data. It could be through an online attack, human error, electronic failures, natural disasters, and many more.
Phishing is now a common way for hackers to steal data, and it is also used to break into networks and encrypt data.
According to surveys, approximately 80% of data breaches can be traced to weak passwords and are not recommended when having a disaster recovery plan.
It is necessary to update your cybersecurity software. Unfortunately, this does not ward off phishing attacks. For protection from these scams, employee training and education are the best forms of protection.
Data encryption is one of the most trusted methods of protection. A managed service provider can easily do this for you and keep your confidential information safe.
Multi-factor authentication is one of the cheapest ways for business owners to protect their data and have disaster recovery, but they don’t spend enough on it.
