Our Backupify team is obsessed (in the best possible meaning of the word) with helping companies around the world understand that backing up critical data is essential. So, please indulge us while we do our happy dance in celebration of World Backup Day happening on March 31.

Mark your calendars and add a to-do item to backup data on your computer and mobile devices (phone, tablet, etc.) on the last Wednesday of March. It’s an easy and quick thing to do to avoid a disaster, especially when you consider that 1 in 10 computers are infected with a computer virus every month and 113 mobile phones are lost or stolen every minute.

With this in mind, we’d like to invite you to make 2021 the year you take the World Backup Pledge:

“I solemnly swear to backup my important documents and precious memories on March 31.”

One final PSA: We can’t stress this enough; backup of your files needs to be routine habit status like brushing your teeth. It only takes a couple of minutes of time to back up your data and it’ll save you from a lot of drama. It’s so worth it!

This is extra important when you're talking about work critical data. Data that if lost, could cost your company $700,000 in downtime. 

So while you’re keeping your own data safe, see how Backupify can help simplify backup at your organization.
