World Backup Day is a day for people to learn about the increasing role of data in our lives and the importance of regular backups.

This independent initiative to raise awareness about backups and data preservation started out — like most good things on the internet - on reddit by a couple of concerned users. Let’s make this happen!

In this new world of hacking, phishing, whaling, and ransomware, the CIO must embrace perseverance by consistently backing up files on the cloud and ensuring that this data is secure. On World Backup Day (March 31) spring is a great reminder to do so. Think of it as a data center spring cleaning behavior to roust out of its winter hibernation.

I chat with Michael Gaffney, CEO of Leonovus on World Backup Day and encourage listeners to take the pledge.

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

2. I will also tell my friends and family about World Backup Day - friends don't let friends go without a backup.
