Disaster Planning and Data Recovery

What if your system went down for an hour, a day, or a week?

What would it cost your business in lost wages, lost productivity, and lost data?

Each business has its own unique risk profile, which dictates the amount of downtime it can tolerate before it suffers permanent damage.

So what's the real world cost of an IT outage? A recent report by StorageCraft1 on the statistics of
Business Continuity found that

  • 36.7 percent of businesses suffered no financial loss
  • 18.3 percent lost $1,000 to $6,000
  • 10 percent loss $50,001 to $100,000
  • 3.3 percent loss $100,001 to $500,000
  • 2.1 percent loss more than $5 million

Also keep in mind that the above calculation does not include additional fixed costs such as rent, electricity, rates, and above all lost sales and a damaged reputation.

A disaster can take many forms, including:

  • hardware or software failure
  • natural disaster such as fire or flood
  • Ransomware or malware infection
  • Theft and malicious damage
