Business Continuity: Is Your Data Secure?09-19-2016 at 11:34 am - Staff
Did you know that over the past two years, over 50% of businesses have experienced an unforeseen interruption? A day’s worth of revenue lost takes a toll. Imagine if it were two, or even three days.
According to USFST’s “Hidden Threats to Enterprise,” 40% of companies that experience a critical IT failure go out of business within a year. We don’t know about you, but that’s pretty frightening.
The even scarier part?
Companies are still failing to put a contingency plan in place. When we discovered this, we were pretty shocked ourselves. It turns out companies most often turn away from business continuity due to fears of a lacking budget, resources, buy-in and support. Analysts also found that over the course of a month, 90% of companies spend less than eight hours planning or managing their continuity plans. 1
Because of weather-related disasters, security breaches and data loss, business continuity is needed more than ever to protect yourself and your company’s ability to operate. It’s one of the most critical components to any recovery strategy. And though you might believe insurance will cover it, it won’t cover the revenue from the loss of customers, market shares, or setbacks in development.
From tornadoes to data hackers, business continuity gives you a competitive advantage when the unexpected occurs. It better positions your company for recovery during interruptions, property damage, or financial impact.
