5 Types of Disasters

that can hinder business continuity

Your business runs 365 days a year; your systems run 24/7; your data is needed in real-time. To ensure your business continuity is to proactively protect your systems and data against disasters of all types.


Plan to Fail

Businesses with a disaster recovery plan report increased savings, enhanced system reliability, improved security, and reduced insurance premiums…even without a disaster.


Fail to Plan

Only 6% of companies without a disaster recovery plan survive a disaster.


IT Disasters are Costly

The cost of data breaches and data loss will top £1.69 trillion globally by 2019 as more data is digitised. The majority of these data breaches will come from existing network infrastructure and IT systems.


Humans Make Mistakes

80% of downtime instances impact mission-critical applications and business data and the majority are caused by human error.


Disasters Affect Everything

A data centre outage costs about £7,093 per minute and can cause forfeited sales, lost data, damaged equipment, disrupted processes, legal or compliance liabilities, damaged client relationships and reputation, and wasted resources controlling the damage.

System Disasters

Hardware, software, systems, and data centres – 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in the last year, caused primarily by phishing & social engineering, malware, spear phishing, denial of service, and out-of-date software, rendering the organisation’s own network either contaminated or inoperable.


Natural Disasters

Due to global climate change, natural disaster occurrences have increased and intensified.

Weather-related outages cost UK businesses as much as £57,000 per hour, according to power management company Eaton, with the biggest disruption cited as a storm in the North East of Scotland in January 2015, when one million homes and businesses were left without power.

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 £14,595 to £28,793. A single poor choice by a single employee can lead to catastrophic data loss.


Rescued from Ransomware

Continental Food & Beverage, distributor of the South American soda Inca Kola got hit with a Ransomware attack and rebuilt their business systems and data immediately – no ransom paid; no data lost.
