Downtime leads to lost productivity, customers, and revenue, ultimately hurting your bottom line.

This is why businesses cannot afford downtime and the negative consequences that come with it. It is vital to be prepared when disaster strikes. If you live in the path of regular natural disasters, you know how important it is to be prepared. However, many corporations and organisations don’t take precautions with their data in case of a disaster. This type of risk can lead to damaging results.


Common Disaster Risk Sources

Whether it’s a natural disaster, weather-related event, human-caused issue, or technical problem, there are many disaster risks that you must be prepared to deal with in order to secure data protection.  

  • Natural Disasters: Floods, fires, tornadoes, and earthquakes are some of the natural disasters that can strike at any time and destroy your vital data.

  • Weather-Related Events: Major storms such as hurricanes, extreme temperatures, or high winds can lead to data loss as well.

  • Human Causes: Data can be lost due to human error or deliberate attacks, including cyber-attacks, vandalism, theft, or even terrorism.

  • Technical Issues: Many potential technical issues can result in data loss, such as hardware or software failures for various reasons.
