What is your company’s hourly or daily cost of downtime? Data is always at risk from common issues such as hardware failure, data corruption and accidentally deleted files to major catastrophes like fires, flooding and natural disasters. There is also a growing risk of malicious damage caused by viruses, malware, ransomware, theft and disgruntled employees. More than 317 million new pieces of malware, computer viruses or other malicious software, were created last year alone1 and 62% of cyber-breach victims are small to mid-size businesses2. The average direct costs of a security breach on small businesses are estimated to be $38,0003. These numbers are growing at an exponential rate. A well executed and maintained Back-up & Data Recovery (BDR) Plan will help mitigate the damage these threats can cause.
