Never feel the panic of losing your data. Be sure your network is prepared for the worst.
In 2012, businesses down the east coast of the U.S. from Boston to Norfolk were negligent and didn’t back up their electronic data—they just didn’t think computer or network failures could happen to them. Super Storm Sandy, summer thunderstorms and winter snowstorms left these businesses without power; the ability to use the Internet or Intranets; or to access their electronic data; all because they didn’t have a back-up strategy. The result was a loss of valuable information, resources, productivity, income and eventually their entire business.
Today, businesses of all types and sizes are increasingly dependent on electronic data to operate. A significant data loss would be disastrous. Data losses can occur due to weather-related incidents like those that occurred in 2012, but according to independent IT research, most businesses suffer data loss due to failure or breakdown of technology. Another alarming growing trend is theft or corruption of electronic data by employees or external computer hackers.
The sad fact is that few businesses take data loss seriously or have taken the steps to deploy an effective data-protection strategy. A 2013 survey of small businesses found that nearly 37 percent of the respondents admitted to backing up less than once per month. And nearly ten percent admitted that they never perform a backup!
