You have a backup system in place. That is good! (if you don’t, you need to…) 

But backing up your data does NOT reduce your risk. Backups help you AFTER you have been breached.  

When you have a breach / get hacked, the criminals will take your data. They will ask you to pay them to “not release” your data on the dark web. They will also contact all your employees, clients, and vendor’s trying to extort money from them or trying to hack them. 

It’s important you know having a backup system is important but it’s only one layer of your Cybersecurity plan and only helps after a breach.
