Business Continuity

Ignoring BCDR Is Dangerous
For Your Business

Never Ignore Backup and Disaster Recovery

With remote workforces becoming the norm, businesses are now exposed to a greater risk of data loss than ever before. Cybercriminals are having a field day with security gaps arising from distributed work environments. The following statistics can prove the same:

  • Over 60% of remote workers do not follow security protocols properly and home networks are 71% less secure than office networks.
  • Cybercrime has increased by almost 300% since the start of the pandemic.

 

It does not matter if data loss happens because of human error, cyberattack or natural disaster. In the absence of a robust BDR solution, the incident can have consequences such as:

  • Companies hit by a data loss incident face an average of close to 200 hours per year of downtime.
  • One-third of customers end their association with a business following a severe data-loss incident.
  • Failure to protect data can draw penalties worth 2% to 4% or more of company turnover.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) solutions?

BCDR solutions are a set of strategies and tools designed to help your business prepare for, respond to, and recover from potentially disruptive events. These can include natural disasters, cyberattacks, hardware failures, or any other incidents that could interrupt your business operations. Business Continuity focuses on keeping your business operations running during and immediately after a disaster, while Disaster Recovery is concerned with quickly restoring your IT infrastructure and accessing your data after a disaster.

...

How often should we test our BCDR plan?

It is recommended to test your BCDR plan at least once a year. However, the exact frequency can depend on several factors, including changes in your business operations, IT infrastructure, or regulatory requirements. Regular testing ensures that your plan remains effective and relevant to your current needs. It also helps identify any weaknesses or areas for improvement, allowing you to make necessary adjustments before an actual disaster occurs.

...

Why is it important for my business to have a BCDR plan in place?

Having a BCDR plan in place is crucial for several reasons. Firstly, it minimizes the potential downtime your business could face in the event of a disaster, ensuring that your operations can continue with minimal interruption. This is vital for maintaining customer trust and avoiding significant financial losses. Secondly, a BCDR plan helps protect and quickly restore critical data, which is essential for the continuity of your operations. Lastly, in many industries, regulatory requirements mandate having such plans in place.

...

Can your BCDR solutions be customized to fit our specific business needs?

Absolutely. Our BCDR solutions are designed to be highly customizable to meet the unique needs of your business. We understand that every organization has different priorities, risks, and IT infrastructures. Our team will work closely with you to assess your specific requirements and develop a tailored BCDR plan that aligns with your business objectives, compliance needs, and budget considerations.
