Catastrophic Data Loss, Will It Cripple your Business ?


Catastrophic Data Loss, Will It Cripple your Business ?

First there was “Halloween”, then there was “Friday the 13th” and “Nightmare on Elm Street” and now, the scariest of all…catastrophic data loss on your business computers that could result in the closing of your company. But do not worry because Computer & Communications Innovations (CCI), which has served the middle Tennessee area for over twenty years, has a simple, economical solution to avert that disaster.

Most businesses, if not all, carry business insurance to cover liability, workmans comp, their physical building and inventory, etc. This is quite the expense. One company I spoke to (medium sized business) spends $2,000 each month on insurance (business only, not health). So does spending thousands of dollars each year on insurance ensure your company’s longevity? NO!

Sure, you will get your physical “stuff” recovered or replaced, but what about your computer data? Whether the loss is caused by a natural disaster, human error, cryptolocker or power outage, the downtime can cost your company dearly in just a matter of seconds. A recent survey concluded that the average downtime across the industries costs $5,600 per minute and the average incident lasted 90 minutes bringing the total cost of the downtime to your company to a whooping $505,500. Could your company survive a devastating loss like that? Data shows that 70% of small businesses go out of business within a year of experiencing major data loss.

Okay, so the numbers you’ve been reading so far are pretty staggering (scary like a horror flick), so what can be done to prevent this from happening to you? Well, the first thing you need to know is that it is much more costly (obviously) to not prepare ahead of time. And don’t think it won’t happen to you…ransomware, power outages and human error are very real things that can cause loss of data. As a matter of fact, most small businesses experience six outages per year. That is a risk you do not want to take!

The second thing you need to know is that if you call Computer & Communications Innovations right now, they can set you up with a comprehensive data backup and recovery solution. And don’t worry, the cost is nowhere near the cost you are paying each month for your business insurance and it is most definitely cheaper than a disastrous downtime.

Don’t be one of the 70% that goes out of business due to data being lost. Be proactive and have CCI implement your total data protection solution today so that in the aftermath of a disaster, your business can be up and running.
