Horrors of Not Having a Disaster Recovery Plan


From Server Street to the Cloud, It’s a Nightmare Everywhere!!!!

Cyber criminals aren’t waiting until Halloween to trick you into losing your important data from your business, and you shouldn’t wait to put a Disaster Recovery Plan in place to protect your business either!
Here’s why…

Since COVID-19, the US FBI reported a 300% increase in reported cybercrimes. Around 90% of attacked companies suffer an average cost of $1.55 million USD each year while the average downtime due to a ransomware attack is 19 days. (Coveware)

For many organizations, these negative impacts can result in compliance and regulatory issues, damage to their reputation and profitability, and in some cases even leads to business closures. Business leaders are increasingly finding that the cost of cybersecurity inaction is too high.

If your organization is attacked, are you prepared? Do you have a ransomware recovery or disaster recovery plan in place?

These responses bring up the question…

How strong is your Disaster Recovery Plan?

When we asked this question, 96% of respondents said they’re using proactive cybersecurity to ensure the availability of their data, but only 59% of respondents said they’re doing this for their business systems.
