Recover from Disaster
Fires, wind storms, explosions and power outages are just some of the threats facing your data.
Most of us
don’t think about Disaster Recovery or Business Continuity until it’s too late. Much like we insure our homes, businesses, automobiles and other important possessions from the high cost of replacement through damage or theft, the data that is stored on our hard drives is thought to be safe and secure when, in actual fact, it is at risk every day. Hackers, viruses, and user error can all result in crippling data losses and take days or weeks to recover from. The importance of protecting irreplaceable data cannot be over-emphasized. And the belief that “it won’t happen to me” is not an effective plan.
Some interesting stats:
31% of PC users have lost all of their files due to events beyond their control. (www.bostoncomputing.net) Only 35 percent of SMBs have a comprehensive disaster recovery plan in place. (Gartner)
43% of companies that suffer major data loss never reopen for business, and another 51% shut down within 2 years. (mcgladrey and pullen study)
They are frightening statistics. And completely preventable…
