Backup and Disaster Recovery
A data backup is a process of storing a copy of the information on a computer to removable backup media that can be kept in a safe place. Backing up data is one of the most effective ways of protecting against data loss. Data can be lost or damaged in circumstances such as theft, equipment failure, or a disaster. If the computer hardware fails, the data can be restored from the backup to functional hardware.
Data backups should be performed on a regular basis and included in a security plan. The most current data backup is usually stored offsite to protect the backup media if anything happens to the main facility.
We all know that data is the most valuable asset of a company. So, our advice is to not risk your business to criminals, hackers, and thieves. Cybercrime hit businesses around the world, and most of the time gain access to the company’s network. The hacking tools for criminals are getting increasingly sophisticated and more profitable. Our question is:
Are you protected against viruses, ransomware, hackers, phishing? Have you trained your staff to be cyber aware? How often are your backups tested? How long does it take to restore after a disaster? If you cannot answer these questions fully you are already at risk. But don’t worry the good news is we are here to help.

At Kepler developers, our plan for data backups includes:
- Frequency – Backups can take a long time. Sometimes it is easier to make a full backup monthly or weekly, and then do frequent partial backups of any data that has changed since the last full backup.
- Security – Backups can be protected with passwords. The password is entered before the data on the backup media can be restored.
- Validation – At Kepler Developers we always validate the backups by testing them to ensure the integrity of the data.
