Hardware, software, systems, and data centers – when they fail, your business doesn’t have to.
The 2016 Cyber Resilience Report found that 66% of companies in 61 countries experienced at least 1 cyber incident in the last year, caused primarily by phishing & social engineering, malware, spear phishing, denial of service, and out-of-date software, rendering the organization’s own network either contaminated or inoperable.
Due to global climate change, natural disaster occurrences have increased and intensified.
Since 2010, we have suffered 2,018 natural disasters (averaging 336 per year). The US is second only to China for the number of natural disasters. Natural disasters have cost the global economy $2.5 trillion since 2000. 80% of businesses suffering a major disaster go out of business in three years.
Human Error Disasters
The most frequent, most common, and often most detrimental cause of disasters that can disrupt business continuity is unintentional human error.
70% of the successful attacks on businesses came from internal threats like employees and contractors. Even small data losses - those with fewer than 100 files lost - cost between $18,120 and $35,730. A single poor choice by a single employee can lead to catastrophic data loss.
