A very expensive lesson...
Data loss is expensive. According to National Archives & Records Administration data, 93% of companies that lost their data for 10 days or more due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year. Also, 50% of businesses that found themselves without data management for the same length of time, filed for bankruptcy immediately. Why?
In order to understand why data loss is so expensive, try to calculate the cost of operating without your CRM data, order information and files. Then, add the costs of recreating this information, if that is even be possible. Then, try to quantify the costs of losing customer data and the need to compensate for this loss. It all adds up, and the implications reach far further than monetary ones to include reputational damage which is also difficult to recover from.
Unfortunately, you cannot always prevent an accident occurring, especially in the case of natural disasters, but you can ensure you are proactive in preparing for a data loss incident. There are a plethora of options available to use to back up your data but whichever you choose, ensure you pick a solution that is secure, reliable and fit for purpose. Redstor provides a secure and automated data backup service that is reliable, infinitely scalable and perhaps most importantly, fast.
