If the unthinkable happens…

In this day and age where technology is ever evolving and people are becoming more tech savvy, it’s astounding to know that enterprises and businesses around the world still don’t have a disaster recovery plans in place. In a recent survey by Beamer, nearly 4 million businesses in the UK alone, are at risk of losing their data due to inadequate and, or more commonly, non-existent backup plans.

“43% of businesses that experience a disaster, never fully recover”

Disasters come in many forms, from malicious malware and viruses embedded into emails and human error, to situations that are out of your control like natural disasters – storms, flooding and fire etc.

Statistics below show the percentage break down of the most common causes of data loss.

  • 67 percent of data loss is caused by hard drive crashes or system failure

  • 14 percent of data loss is caused by human error

  • 10 percent of data loss is a result of software failure


Worryingly, 43% of businesses that experience a disaster, never fully recover and if they do recover it can waste significant time. For every business, time is precious and time is of course money. The quicker a business can get back to normal the better.
