Brand new Veeam Data Protection Report 2021's standout: More than 3000 IT decision makers in global companies, more than 300 in Germany, subject; they don't give themselves good grades when it comes to data protection and data management.

Few companies have well thought through backup strategies, 14% of all data is never backed up, and almost 60% of all recovery attempts fail. Even unprotected, lost data is diametrically opposed to digitization requirements. The company's business continuity and reputation are therefore highly vulnerable.

How can this be in 2021, when cyber attacks increase exponentially? BSI's warnings to all Microsoft 365 users to quickly close the loophole and, above all, to check what malware might already be installed on company servers, are good examples of this.

Every year 31 March is World Backup Day; It seeks to raise awareness of the importance of having well thought-out backup strategies among both individuals and businesses.

With a wide variety of cloud solutions, this is assumed to be easy to implement nowadays. However, the devastating fire at the 5-floor server center of Europe's largest French cloud provider OVH only shows how dangerous the cloud strategy is and how it should be implemented as a cloud-first strategy. 12,000 servers burned down along with all the data stored here. 3.6 million websites went offline, including government portals and banks. Many large customers have irreversibly lost large amounts of data in the fire because they do not have the additional protection in the form of data boxes with removable hard drives.

For many years there has been a simple 3-2-1 rule that reliably prevents such damage: 3 copies – 2 media – 1 external backup elsewhere .

91% of companies increased their use of cloud services in the first few months of the pandemic, and 60 percent will continue to do so, with plans to add more cloud services to their IT strategy. According to the report, by 2023, 77 percent of organizations worldwide will use cloud-first backups. But in the event of a disaster, how long does it take to recover lost data? What happens in case of server crash? What happens in the case of a complete collapse?

There should always be additional measures to avoid increasingly jeopardizing digital business models in the long run. The decisive factors should not be efficiency and cost savings, but data protection and maintaining business continuity. The ideal complement to cloud models are external hard drives that are transported and stored. The covers provide optimum protection, e.g. If data is stored in high-security archives against moisture or shock, and backup hard drives are regularly replaced and updated, there is always a secure fallback solution in case of virus attacks, hacker attacks, technical failures, or environmental disasters such as fire.
