Who needs Disaster Recovery?
Disaster recovery is for all businesses regardless of size. It is thought that businesses encountering a disaster go out of business within five years. Effective disaster recovery can minimise the impact to your business and get you back up and running quickly.
Disaster Recovery Management Statistics
The London Chamber of Commerce identifies the risks associated with not having DR in place. They anticipate that:
- 90% of businesses that lose data from a disaster are forced to close within two years of the disaster.
- 80% of businesses without a well-structured recovery plan are forced to close within 12 months of a flood or fire.
- 43% of companies experiencing disasters never recover.
- 50% of companies experiencing a computer outage will be forced to shut within five years.
