In business, we rely on technology. No matter how advanced our tech is, nothing is impervious to errors. Data is an often overlooked area of concern for small business owners. Data recovery is simply a process of salvaging data. Whether that data was inaccessible, lost, corrupted, or damaged. Hardware failure is not only unexpected but catastrophic. Data can be lost from your primary device, secondary storage, removable media, etc.
Data loss is far more significant, and possible, than many business owners may think. Ponemon Institute conducted the Cost of Data Breach study in the Summer of 2017. This study determined that the average of a lost or stolen record was valued at $225. That’s PER record or piece of information. How many records does your business have? How many names, numbers, detailed documentation? How sensitive is this information? This means that easily data breach and data loss is worth thousands to the smallest of businesses. To the average business, it’s worth over 3 million based on this same study.
An important part of your IT strategy is to have a comprehensive backup plan in place. This will generally ensure minimal to no loss of data. These practices are included in our full-service Server Maintenance & Security packages.
Data Breaches are skyrocketing in number. Many small businesses are only safe by obscurity and this is a very risky practice. Don’t risk it! Data loss isn’t always malicious, however. In fact, most significant data loss is simply via employee error or hardware failure. The later can lead to data that isn’t recoverable in all cases, so don’t skip out on your data recovery and back up plans.
