Backups: An often sidelined lifesaver

Businesses all around the world have been moving away from paper dependent offices. Office are striving to digitise. This is an excellent decision which should be encouraged. One critically important element of digitisation is not given the importance it should – backups.

Most individuals will not think about this subject unless disaster strikes. This would be way too late. Through the years we have met a number of organisations who lost years worth of data. Data which translates in records of past activities and knowledge attained during the years.

According to Washington’s National Archives & Records Administration 93% of companies that lost their data for 10 or more days ended up filing for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster. Here are some additional statistics to get you thinking:

  • 1 in 3 people have never backed up.
  • 29% of data loss caused by accident or user error.
  • 25% of PC users suffer data loss every year.
  • 1 in 10 computers infected with viruses or ransomware.
