Business Disaster and Data Loss Prevention

Disasters and data loss can happen to any business at any time and the downtime caused is truly catastrophic. 90% of companies will experience some form of downtime. This downtime directly hurts a company’s bottom line. In addition to lost data there are impacts to productivity and revenue. An hour of downtime on average costs $8,000 for a small company, $74,000 for a medium company, and $700,000+ for a large enterprise. The average time it takes a business to recover from disaster is 18.5 hours, and 43% of companies never totally recover.

These losses are exponentially increased if your company is expected to adhere to federal regulations like HIPPA or PCI. Many businesses never recover from these losses caused by downtime; in fact 70% of businesses fail within 3 years of a disaster.

Some of the most common causes of disasters that cause downtime are hardware failure, human error, software failure, updates, or natural disasters.
