Did you know 58% of businesses do not even have a plan for dealing with a natural disaster?
Furthermore, 81% of businesses that have a plan are unable to test execution of it, or are unsuccessful in restoration.
When Mother Nature gets upset, we need to be ready. When we think about nature, we also think about a potential disaster; hurricanes, blizzards, ice storms, tornadoes, and earthquakes all come to mind.
Those are, no doubt, real threats that can cause more common threats such as power failure, Internet and network outage and severe hardware failures that cause business interruptions. These need to be planned for so that you can continue your business operations and generate revenue.
The majority of business owners feel confident, thinking that their backup and offsite data backup copy will save their business from the consequences of a disaster, well – not necessarily! Let’s not get mixed up, your backups will not truly be useful in case of a disaster!
To get your offsite backup data restored you need to think of: Where would you restore your offsite data onto? Where is the hardware going to come from? How many other businesses will be fighting to get the same or similar hardware? How long before you will get to set everything up to be ready to restore your data? How long would it take to download your data? In summary, how long will it take for your business operations to be fully restored?
Most will say hours, but reading the questions again you may want to re-think that answer as this forecast seems highly unfeasible.
About 60% of businesses that have had a major data loss or outage, will not survive in business for a year after the incident. You could be one of lucky 42% who have a plan, and within that percentage be among the 19% who have a successfully executed tested plan. If you are not one of them, IP ConnectX can help.
