IT security should not be an afterthought. Without a security strategy your business is open to malicious attack, online security issues and, in some cases, data protection can be worryingly compromised.
BCDR: Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery
If catastrophe strikes, your business systems and data must remain safe and available.
5 Types of disasters that can hinder business continuity
Your business runs 365 days a year; your systems run 24/7; your data is needed in real-time. To ensure your business continuity is to proactively protect your systems and data against disasters of all types.
Hardware, software, systems and data centres – when they fail, your business doesn’t have to.
The 2016 Cyber Resilience Report found that 66% of companies in 61 countries experienced at least 1 cyber incident in the last year, caused primarily by phishing and social engineering, malware, spear phishing, denial of service, and out-of-date software, rendering the organisation’s own network either contaminated or inoperable.
Due to global climate change, natural disaster occurrences have increased and intensified.
Since 2010, we have suffered 2,018 natural disasters (averaging 336 per year). Natural disasters have cost the global economy $2.5 trillion since 2000. 80% of businesses suffering a major disaster go out of business in three years.
Human Error Disasters
The most frequent, most common and often most detrimental cause of disasters that can disrupt business continuity is unintentional human error. 70% of the successful attacks on businesses came from internal threats like employees and contractors. Even small data losses - those with fewer than 100 files lost - cost between $18,120 and $35,730. A single poor choice by a single employee can lead to catastrophic data loss.
