Backup and Disaster Recovery

Although employee awareness and intrusion detection/prevention tools go a long way to block exploits, you should be prepared to recover from a breach should it occur.

The third plank of a layered security strategy is performing data backups frequently to recover after a breach. And the key word is “frequently”. Backing up frequently – every 2 – 4 hours, limits your exposure to lost data.
Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) is a combination of data backup and disaster recovery solutions that are designed to work together to ensure uptime, mitigate data loss, and maximize productivity during a cyber-attack, natural disaster, or other compromising situations.

A recent study indicated that 51% of small and mid-sized organizations surveyed had experienced ransomware attacks. Surprisingly, these companies reported four ransomware attacks on average and 48% paid ransom while 52% did not. Of the 52% that did not pay, 42% did not pay because they had full backup of systems and data and could recover from an assault. (Ponemon Institute)

BDR solutions keep businesses safe when trouble strikes

The Challenge

For small business owners, formulating a backup and disaster recovery plan is one of those all important tasks that often gets put on the back burner for any number of reasons.  However, the following shocking statistics should make business owners pause and rethink the importance of having an effective backup and disaster recovery plan in place.

The Issues:

  • Small businesses are unclear about the true value of BDR
  • Small businesses don’t always take security seriously – they wrongly assume that it’s the big corporations that face the highest risks.
  • Nearly 40% of small businesses close after a disaster (Federal Emergency Management Agency)
  • 25% of businesses that close due to a major disaster never reopen.
  • 75% of small businesses do not have a disaster recovery plan in place (Nationwide)
  • 52% of small businesses say it would take at least three months to recover from a disaster (Nationwide)
  • Only 18% of companies with fewer than 50 employees have a disaster recovery plan (Nationwide)
  • Nobody ever suspects the office printer – Ponemon Institute reports that 60% of companies surveyed had a data breach involving printers.
