Disasters can happen at anytime, to anyone. Businesses can suffer major data loss from human error, power outages, hard drive failure, or other disasters. There is a long list of things that could happen and ultimately bring your business to a screeching halt. 96% of business experienced an outage in a 3-year period.
The full cost of downtime
At first glance, it might not seem like downtime costs much. But the truth is that these losses are far reaching and impact many aspects of a company including lost revenue, employee productivity, product quality control issues among others.
How to minimize downtime costs
When downtime strikes, companies of all shapes and sizes face expenses to get back up and running. Keep your business safe by developing a disaster recovery plan that spins activity away from the need for an immediate solution in case of a problem. Everyone benefits when you protect company data with cloud backup or off-site storage so that it’s protected.
Common factors causing downtimes and their impact levels:
- Hardware Failures | 45 percent
- Power Outages | 35 percent
- Software Failures | 34 percent
- Data Corruption | 24 percent
- External Security Breaches | 23 percent
- Accident User Error | 20 percent
Business continuity is the preparation to ensure that an organization will have the capability to operate its critical business functions during emergency events. It is important to remember that you should plan and prepare not only for events that will stop functions completely but for those that also have the potential to adversely impact services or functions.
Ask yourself these questions:
Are your servers backed up?
Are you prepared for a natural disaster?
How much productivity or data loss would you experience?
Do you have a Business Continuity plan?
