It is always important to be prepared and ready in case something were to breach your network and you needed to restore your systems. It is not a good idea to put your data backups off or to think that you will will never be a victim of a virus.
According to Tech Republic, “When discussing the importance of information security we’ve probably heard excuses such as “we’re too small to be a target” or “we don’t have anything of value”, but if there is anything this report can teach us, is that breaches can and do occur in organizations of all sizes and across a large number of industries. Profit drives several breaches, especially in the finance, retail, and food-services sectors, but cyber-espionage targets industries that possess wealth in the form of intellectual property, such as manufacturing and professional services.”
