Critical Data | Protect your Business Essentials

Paul Anderson, MD at DCResponse discusses further…

What is critical data?

Data that falls under the category of critical includes information that cannot be recovered or replicated in case of loss or destruction. Such data encompasses a wide range of categories, including but not limited to, customer information, financial records, emails, sales records, contracts, and sensitive employee information.

Why am I at risk?

The most vital thing within your business is often your businesses critical data. If you don’t have a UPS and/or generator in place your business is at risk of losing data as well as downtime during a power outage.

How much does downtime cost?

Downtime, even if just for a matter of seconds, can carry a huge price tag. Exact figures on how much power outages cost businesses are hard to come by but according to Dunn & Bradstreet, 59 percent of Fortune 500 companies experience a minimum of 1.6 hours downtime a week, which translates to a cost of £30.4m annually.  Other research claims that the average UK business can lose up to £3,000 per minute during a power outage.

With power outages forecasted to increase, having an unprotected business is a big risk to take when there is power protection readily available.
