3 Statistics That Show How Important Your Data Backup System Is

3 Statistics That Show How Important Your Data Backup System Is

The fear of losing data fuels the data backup market, and with all the new threats that are constantly trying to find you on the Internet, every company has to have a strategy to protect their data. A lot of small businesses struggle to recover if they don’t have proper continuity policies, including data backup, when there is a situation that causes them to lose data.

The fact is that a organization’s data is a critical component of its attempts to sustain operations after it’s hit with a disaster. Let’s look at three statistics that could relate to your business’ ability to protect its data.

Statistic #1: 20 Percent of All Small Businesses Will Be Hacked This Year
Some business owners think their business is too small to be hacked. This is wrong, and can put a company in great peril. In fact most businesses that get hacked suffer financial hardship, reputational demise, or worse. In fact, 60 percent of small businesses that have to deal with a major data loss incident, don’t last for long afterwards. 

You may not be able to control when and how you are going to be hacked, but by taking proactive measures to make sure that your data is secure, if it were to be hit with some form of data loss, you won’t have to worry about running the risk of company failure.

Statistic #2: 20 Percent of All SMBs Will Suffer Major Data Loss Once Every Five Years
Data’s role for business is changing. It is now an essential variable of most businesses, and since it’s stored digitally, it is easier to manage, but also easier to lose. One-in-five businesses will deal with major data loss at some point, and by being prepared for it, you can put it behind you and move your business forward

Statistic #3: Despite Having a Disaster Recovery Plan in Place, 33 Percent Are Unprepared
You get it, you think. You understand how important backup is and how it will bail you out of a tight spot. This is true, but there is much more to it than that. You need to have a disaster recovery plan in place that has firm answers on what systems need to be restored first and how much data and time you can lose before your business is in trouble. Testing your backup solution is important, but knowing about your business is essential to a successful data recovery.

At RCS Professional Services, our knowledgeable professionals can not only set you up with the technology your organization needs to keep from being a statistic, they can help put you in an advantageous position by helping you plan the backup and recovery platform you would need to save your business.
