If you are currently using a OpenVPMS managed cloud based service your database and server backups are managed automatically and your server is completely secure.
If you’re running a local OpenVPMS server it is critical that your local I.T. provider has setup suitable onsite and offsite backup strategies and security in order to protect your data should a disaster or network breach occur.
With the prevalence of security risks such as Cryptovirus, these backups could mean the difference between minimal/no and complete data loss. Please make sure your local I.T. provider has setup your backups , checked them and secured your server.
