Have you ever been half way through an important document, only for your computer system to crash?
For both large and small businesses, the inability to retrieve lost data can be critical, and can have wide-ranging ramifications.
In today’s blog, SFP Modules takes a look at the importance of data backup, and why it is imperative to your business.
What are the risks?
A recent study by The Diffusion Group showed the stark reality that the loss of data can have on a business.
The report stated that “60% of companies that lose their data close down within six months of the disaster and a staggering 72% of businesses that suffer major data loss disappear within 24 months.”
Data backup is extremely important and should be considered a priority for any business. System faults and failures, viruses, and cyber attacks can all lead to the loss of important data.
Prevention is better than the cure; backup systems can be held by a provider offsite, or via a cloud.
Any lost data can then be retrieved quickly and safely, and you will be confident in the knowledge that any mistakes can be rectified.
Clients like to know that their personal data is in safe hands, so having a data backup will give trust and credibility to your business - keeping your reputation intact.
Secure data backup can also enhance investor confidence for larger companies, as it demonstrates a company's willingness to protect information.
Data backup also benefits employees, who know that, if disaster strikes, there is a reliable system in place to rectify any system failures or examples of human error.
Currently, most businesses are choosing an online cloud backup, where employees can access information anywhere, anytime, without compromising the quality of results.
