Is Your Business Safe
The loss or corruption of critical information such as customer records, inventories, marketing and sales materials, financial or employee records could literally cripple an organization.
Small businesses are typically the most vulnerable to data loss because they do not have the resources or technology to handle data storage and recovery properly or securely, which is the most critical aspect of a solid business continuity plan.
Even larger businesses that allocate significant resources to IT, are vulnerable if they do not manage all of the data (including remote and mobile employee data) properly.
Tape backups must be performed regularly and cataloged properly. Unless these tapes are handled and stored offsite properly, the corporation is susceptible to threats of natural disaster as well as competitive theft or the malicious behavior of disgruntled employees. And tape has a short shelf life.
And, as storage requirements evolve, IT must scale efficiently as well. In addition, the expanding mobile workforce with portable PCs can present several challenges for information security and data backups.
In all cases of data loss, countless hours and potentially thousands of dollars will be spent on recreating data while struggling to maintain customers. The reality is that most businesses do not manage to survive data loss.
The value of your data becomes evident when you realize what it would take to replace all of those irreplaceable files. How much time and effort would it take to reconstruct your contact database, presentations, spreadsheets, emails, forecasts, expense logs and proposals? The time, effort, aggravation, and monetary costs to recreate this data can be unbearable.
