Why Data Backup and Recovery are Important for Your Business

The single thing most important to your company’s function is its data. Without data, only a minuscule fraction of companies have what they need to complete their day’s work. Especially in the case of companies who keep private customer or client data on file, data loss can be devastating. A comprehensive data backup and recovery plan are imperative for ensuring that your company is protected. Without one, your company can experience permanent data loss, extensive employee downtime, and unanticipated expenses. Here are just a few of the many reasons why data backup and recovery are crucial for your business.

  1. Cyberattacks Are Always Evolving

In 2017, the average small business affected by ransomware lost more than $100,000 due to downtime. Odds are, if you’re a small business, this amount is not something you can easily spare. Although there are a number of ways to try and protect yourself from cyberattacks, these processes are not always successful, and any company can be susceptible to malware or other malicious attacks. Technology is always evolving, but this means that cyberattacks are always evolving and becoming more advanced as well. If one attack slips through the cracks of your preventative measures, data recovery plans can make sure that the damage is minimal and your downtime is virtually nonexistent. 

  1. Mistakes Happen

Many people think that data loss is typically a result of natural disasters or cyberattacks, and therefore it’s extremely rare or easy to prevent. However, the reality is that over half of all data loss incidents are the result of unanticipated human error or hardware malfunctions. Whether it’s coffee spilled on a hard drive, lost laptops, or accidentally pressing the delete key, mistakes happen. Ensuring that you have a data backup and recovery solution in place will help you get back up and running in no time, thereby saving you time, money, and stress.

 

  1. Your Reputation is Invaluable

More than 20 percent of businesses that experience data loss will lose customers as a result. Of those companies, 40 percent lose more than ⅕ of their customers. Is this a loss that you’re able or willing to take? Losing a client’s trust means losing their business. Make sure that you always have client data fully backed up and easily recoverable with a comprehensive recovery plan from C3. 

  1. Lost Time is Lost Money

29 percent of businesses that are victims of cyber attacks lose revenue, and 40 percent of those companies lose more than 20 percent of their total revenues. In business, time is money, and therefore extensive downtime will inevitably result in lost profits. By having access to a backup of all of your data, you can eliminate significant downtime caused by a data loss incident and get right back to work.

If you want to ensure that your data is safe and always recoverable, call C3 Tech to discuss a data backup and recovery plan. We can customize your plan to perfectly suit your business’s needs, no matter how big or small your company is. We provide you more than basic IT services; we provide complete peace of mind.
