If your business is like most, it is critically dependent on the data in your computer(s). Accounting data. Emails. Documents and spreadsheets, and on and on.
If you expect to be in business for the long haul, you need to protect that data by regularly backing it up.
Don’t yet have a data backup plan in place? Consider the following sobering statistics:
93% of companies that lost their data center for 10 days or more due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster. 50% of businesses that found themselves without data management for this same time period filed for bankruptcy immediately. (National Archives & Records Administration in Washington)
94% of companies suffering from a catastrophic data loss do not survive. 43% never reopen and 51% close within two years. (University of Texas)
30% of all businesses that have a major fire go out of business within a year and 70% fail within five years. (Home Office Computing Magazine)
77% of those companies who do test their tape backups found back-up failures. (Boston Computing Network, Data Loss Statistics)
7 out of 10 small firms that experience a major data loss go out of business within a year. (DTI/Price Waterhouse Coopers)
