3 Safety Tips for Moving Your Business to the Cloud, New York, New York

The cloud offers seemingly endless connectivity and storage options for businesses of every size. When you finally make the move to it, you’ll be handling a lot of data, so it’s important to keep cybersecurity in mind. By making a plan and following these steps, you can be confident you’re positioned to protect your data in the future.

Tips for Moving to the Cloud

1. Back Everything Up

Before you do anything, back up all of your data, no matter how insignificant it may be. Choose a secondary backup option from the cloud, such as a fault domain or other cloud-based service. Also, have an extra hard drive backup. It may seem like overkill, but should a cybersecurity threat occur, you’ll have a physical, secondary, and even third backup of all your data, which is irreplaceable when it comes to recovering from a security breach.

2. Know What You’re Moving & Where It’s Going

Organize financial and sensitive documents, media files, working files, and completed projects so you can apply the proper security measures and won’t have to dig for anything. Also, know your cloud options. You can choose a public or community cloud with other organizations, a private cloud, or a hybrid. Each has cybersecurity advantages, and an IT solutions provider can help you make a selection.

3. Test Security & Transfer

Don’t upload everything at once. First, test the cloud. Move a few files to get familiar with the process and dashboard. You can then see how you can navigate your uploaded data. You can also get familiar with cybersecurity systems. It’s wise to conduct a security audit every week to assess any vulnerabilities in your system.
