Did you know that 93% of companies who suffer a disaster without a backup go out of business within only one year? Further, 96% of companies with a trusted disaster recovery plan were able to survive ransomware attacks. (Source PhoenixNAP 2018)
These are just a few of the mind blowing facts when it comes to how important the data on your computer is to your business. Would you feel safe being one of the 75% of small businesses without a disaster recovery plan? According to CNN, “on average, businesses lose over $100,000 per ransomware incident due to downtime and recovery costs.”
Often times, cyber criminals will utilize a human-based method of bypassing security, such as a phishing attack. Human error is the number one cause of security and data breaches and is responsible for 52% of incidents. Human error can also be the cause of the data loss itself. We’ve all been the culprit of accidentally deleting an important file.
Computers are also subject to degradation of hardware. Hard disk drives have a lifespan and it is not infinite. If your data is not backed up onto at least two separate disk drive systems in two locations, you are in danger. Power surges, fires, and even burglary can put your data at risk of being destroyed.
