When you lose data on your home computer, you may lose receipts, banking statements, and treasured memories. However, when you lose data on your office computer, you may be losing thousands of dollars.
Here’s why data backups are so important for your organization:
Hardware is not Invincible
Just like any other kind of hardware, the parts in your computer are susceptible to damage, wear, and tear. Even your expensive hard drive is going to wear out eventually—and if you’re particularly unlucky, your data will be lost forever with it.
All it takes is a spilled drink, a crashed drive, or some other unfortunate event to put your organization’s data at risk. As a business owner or a CIO, you can’t let that happen. Fortunately, there are smart backup solutions that can give you peace of mind.
Protection Against Cyber Threats
You know how dangerous these cyber threats can be, but did you realize how prevalent they have become? 79% of managed service providers surveyed reported ransomware attacks against customers between 2016 and 2018. Worse yet, the downtime caused by these kinds of attacks can cost your business an average of $46,800.
The number of ransomware attacks isn’t predicted to diminish any time soon, either. That’s why backup solutions are essential to protect your company’s sensitive information.
