Mistakes. They’re a part of life, both personal and business, and we learn to live with them. We brush ourselves off and get over the majority of them, but it’s those preventable mistakes that are the most exasperating.
There’s No Need to Make This Particular Mistake
Businesses who fail to implement a disaster recovery plan are at risk of making one of those exasperating preventable mistakes, and the costs can be very high indeed.
- Approximately one-third of small businesses have suffered loss from natural disasters.
- Another 10% of small businesses are negatively impacted by human-caused disasters.
- 43% of companies impacted by a catastrophic data loss are unable to reopen their doors and 51% close within the following two years.
- Just 6% of small businesses survive a catastrophic data loss.
Perhaps the most depressing fact of the mix is that catastrophic data loss is largely preventable.
