World Cyber Protection Week

Backup and storage through the ages

Last week was the inaugural World Cyber Protection Week, a new annual event created to raise awareness of the increasingly complex protection challenges that face today’s home users, IT professionals, and service providers. Throughout it, we shared resources meant to help you prepare for the digital world of tomorrow – today, we’re shifting focus.

Join us for a fun look back at how backup and storage have evolved through the ages – and how it will continue to evolve in the years to come.

Here's what our Cyber Protection Week survey results mean for personal users

As the inaugural World Cyber Protection Week starts to wind down, we’re taking a deeper look at our survey results to explore what they really have to say about personal, home users and how you can use these insights to keep yourself safer in the year ahead.

Learn how people around the world are protecting their increasingly digital lives and confronting the modern cyberthreats attacking their data, applications, and systems.

IT support stories perfect for April Fools Day

In honor of World Cyber Protection Week and April Fools’ Day, we’re celebrating the essential – and often frustrating – work of IT support staff by taking a look back at horror stories of dealing with users at their most foolish. We scoured some of our favorite sources for terrible tales of tech support to find nine excerpts that might make your average day seem a little bit better, by comparison.

Has you business experienced data loss resulting in downtime this year?

This year’s World Cyber Protection Week survey results offer a wealth of insight into how individuals and IT professionals are approaching the challenges of increasing complexity, cost, and vulnerability. And while there’s a great deal personal users, IT professionals, and service providers can learn from these survey findings, viewing them in a silo ignores some important, broader context.

To offer a clearer picture of what this year’s survey means, we’ve compared our 2020 findings with responses from personal users and IT professionals in all of our previous survey iterations. This comparison presents a robust perspective of how data-defense priorities have evolved over time, and how cyber protection’s modern, comprehensive approach to safeguarding data, applications, and systems is poised to become even more necessary in the months and years ahead.

This year's World Cyber Protection Week survey results are in

This World Cyber Protection Week, we expanded our annual data protection survey to cover more of the digital challenges and concerns that face modern IT users – whether they’re at home, at work, or relying on a service provider that protects a portfolio of clients.

This year’s results paint a clear picture: People and organizations are acutely aware of the risks on the horizon but they are much less certain about how to easily, efficiently, and securely prepare for and overcome them. Let’s dive into the findings of our 2020 survey.

It's time to evolve from World Backup Day. Welcome to World Cyber Protection Week.

For nearly 10 years, Acronis has been a proud evangelist of World Backup Day ... but today, backup is no longer enough. While backup remains a key component to complete data, application, and system protection, traditional backup solutions aren’t keeping pace with challenges that face the modern digital world.

It’s time to evolve the way we protect the data and devices we rely on. That’s why we’re raising the bar this World Backup Day: welcome to the first-ever World Cyber Protection Week.
