Celebrated On March 31st
Data is essential to us all. We rely on it complete even the most basic daily tasks, and yet it is so easy to take for granted.
World Backup Day was established to remind us of the importance of data in our lives, and why we must make a sincere effort to protect it.
Think of all the information you access every day. Photos, documents, financial records, calendars, reminders, even shopping lists are all stored electronically. Having all that data right there at your fingertips makes life easier than ever before. When something goes wrong, however, and that data is gone, even the most basic tasks become nearly impossible.
That is why we encourage you to take a few minutes on March 31st each year to make sure that your data is backed up and secure. If it is, set aside some time to check and make sure that those backups are working properly and that you have access to them. If your data is not backed up, mark the 31st in your calendar as the day you will fix that.
