In a previous post we discussed how technical mishaps can leave your company exposed. But, imagine how exposed your business can become after a natural disaster sweeps through the area and eliminates all of your computer data. What do you do?
If your data is backed up, you will probably be less worried than if you did not take the proper steps to back up your data. In order to continue doing business, your company will have to suffer through a costly and painful restoration process. If the exhausting restoration process does not scare you, maybe this will: according to a study by Gartner Group, 43% of companies shut down immediately after major data loss, and of the remaining percentage only 6% survived within two years. Natural disasters, computer viruses, fires, and other accidents strike businesses often, so it’s best that your company is ready when one hits.
