Many New Zealand businesses report that they are not properly prepared to combat the risk or to bounce-back in the event they suffer a catastrophic data loss. There are a number of factors that affect the majority of businesses today and may increase their susceptibility of a data loss:
What is the Real Cost of Data Loss to a Business Owner?
According to the Gartner Group 43 percent of companies were immediately put out of business by a major loss of computer records, and another 51 percent permanently closed their doors within two years. This leaves a mere six percent “survival” rate.
What about a loss that is not catastrophic? This type of data loss is an expensive problem as well that costs organizations an estimated average of $200 per record affected according to a recent survey by Ponemon Institute, though to some degree the true costs associated with data loss are difficult to measure.
What can be Done to Avoid a Catastrophic Data Loss?
Implementing a data protection program is essential for every organization. While most business owners recognize that their data files are their livelihood, more than half admit to not having a quality data backup protocol in place. Here are some tips on what you can start doing today to protect your business:
A proactive approach to protecting your data and establishing a plan for recovery in the event of a loss is smart business. Ask your local Computer Troubleshooter about the best protective mechanisms for your data or for assistance with any of the above recommended tips before it is too late!
It’s a call no one wants to make to their IT service provider. You’ve turned on your computer, and nothing happens. Undoubtedly, the voice on the other end of the line asks if you backed up your data. That’s when panic sets in.
No matter what got you into this situation, whether it’s a disaster that struck your office, a computer reaching the end of its lifespan, or an accident involving your computer, having a consistent backup plan in place is your only protection against the loss of one of your businesses most important assets – your customer records and transaction data.
In fact, research shows that almost half (43%) of all businesses that suffer a catastrophic data loss will never reopen. Even more will be out of business within a year.
So what can you do to ensure your data’s safety?
Computer Troubleshooters offers a full line of data backup solutions for small and medium businesses that range from simple onsite backup procedures to fully automated online backup solutions No matter what your office and data needs are, we have a solution that fits you and your budget.
Some companies want a backup for the backup, especially in the cases of extreme disaster or power failure. For these clients, an onsite data server can be used along with an automated online solution to allow for maximum protection and the fastest recovery time possible if your office suffers a major catastrophe, which is incredibly important for companies who are dependent on data to operate.
If you have quality backup measures in place, then data recovery will generally be a quick and painless process and you should be up and running in no time. If you do not have a backup plan for your office, then recovering your data becomes a much more complicated process.
It is significantly more expensive to attempt to recover data, especially if there is a lot of physical damage to the hardware, than it is to have your data available in a safe location that simply needs to be retrieved. Also, there is no guarantee that the data will be found, or that what is retrieved will be accessible. Computer Troubleshooters does provide data recovery services, but would always recommend that all of their clients invest in a quality backup solution.
Protect your company by protecting your data today. Talk to your local Computer Troubleshooter about the best protection mechanisms for your data, or about any of your technology needs … before it’s too late!
