In today’s information age, every business is swimming in enormous amounts of data, most of which is critical to their day-to-day operation. Whether you’re a tech start-up creating the next cutting-edge application or a graphic design firm creating and storing thousands of large graphic files a day, data back-up and recovery are central to your success as a business. The latest reporting on cyber security in 2022 paints a grim picture. If you’re creating and storing vast amounts of data, you need a viable backup and recovery plan to ensure the safety of your company’s information. Beyond cyber security, the Texas grid failure in 2021 proved the importance of securing your data. To learn more about why you should invest in data backup and recovery, continue reading below.
Cyber Security in 2022
In 2020, the business world saw an enormous shift towards remote work. While this shift did wonders to improve the work-life balance of many, it also created new vulnerabilities in cyber security. According to the Allianz Risk Barometer, “Cyber perils are the biggest concern for companies globally in 2022.” Cyber security threats include ransomware attacks, data breaches, and large-scale IT outages. Today, cybercriminals can penetrate 93% of company networks. According to a study conducted by Positive Technologies, in 93 percent of cases, an external attacker could breach an organization’s network perimeter and gain access to local network resources. In 2021, businesses suffered 50% more cyber-attacks per week than in 2020. Over half of businesses who fall victim to cyber security attacks suffer losses in brand reputation, customer loyalty, and customer trust. Beyond reputation, if your data is lost, chances are you’re losing revenue, customers, and critical employee information. Investing in a proper data backup and recovery solution is the only way to ensure your data’s safety in the event of a cyber security breach.
Natural Disasters and Data
Hackers and ransomware are not the only threats to your company’s data. Hurricanes, floods, fires, tornados, earthquakes, and even tsunamis are all very real threats to your company’s information. While it may be feasible to recover data from temporary power outages caused by stormy weather, it’s near impossible to recover data from an onsite flood or fire. In the event of a natural disaster, data backup and recovery become critical. Given the increase in severe weather in recent years, it’s only logical to plan for annual natural disasters and prevent data loss through a comprehensive data backup and recovery plan.
Hard Drive Failure
Despite living in a world so technologically advanced that we have self-driving cars and commercial space travel, hard drive failure remains an enormous threat to your company’s data. If you do not have multiple up-to-date copies of your data, a hard drive failure could cause you to lose everything.
