Often times it’s not the big bad hackers out there that pose the biggest threat to your organization's continued survival. More often than not, it’s simple issues that create a world of problems for your business. One common way that an otherwise sound business plan could be disrupted is through an unexpected disaster derailing operations without having an adequate data backup solution in place.
Disasters are more common than you might think in the workplace. Whether it’s a natural disaster or occurrence, like a fire or electrical storm that hits your infrastructure or energy source, or a hacking attack that targets your business’ data, the point stands that an unpredictable disaster could be just enough to knock your business off its game (if only temporarily).
Even your own employees aren’t safe from unknowingly causing your organization damage. All it takes is one mistake--an employee downloading the wrong attachment or handing over credentials to a scammer--to create problems for your business. Depending on how severe the breach is, it could cause your business to shut down operations or lose important data… data that is only backed up if you have a solution in place to do so.
User error is a common problem in the workplace. A case of a misplaced or deleted file could spawn a considerable amount of trouble, depending on how important the file is. Of course, we all know how easy it is to lose something in the workplace, and the complexity of computers means that this occurrence is almost a certainty. A data backup and disaster recovery solution is great for not just large data breaches or natural disasters, but for even the smallest user error as well. It could save you countless hours of frustration if you take preventative measures now.
