2023 is drawing to a close, and now is the perfect time to take a look back at some facts and figures that have made up the past 12 months in the world of disaster recovery.
Did you know that 76% of businesses have experienced critical data loss? with a further 45% of them losing their data permanently? This is the result of many things from human error, ransomware, and hardware failure.
75% of organisations globally were victims of social engineering attacks, i.e. phishing attacks, and in the past 18 months two out of three midsize organizations have suffered from a ransomware attack.
As the years go on the numbers of data loss in businesses is unsurprisingly going to increase, the urgency to ensure you have a backup of your data could not be any greater than it is now. For small to medium sized businesses, 51% do not have an incident response plan at all, do you want to be a part of that statistic?

While the Christmas period might be a couple of days of rest for yourself, it won’t be for the hackers trying to compromise your systems. It’s not just Christmas either, any holiday that has you away from your system is the perfect chance for hackers to get you to open that phishing email that they’ve snook into your inbox.
So, remember to check email attachments carefully, make sure they are legit and are emails that you are expecting to receive. Don’t let curiosity get the better of you, one click, and you’re left with a pretty heavy mess to clean up. Backup Systems can help you recover if such an event were to occur, you can’t do much about it afterwards if you don’t have the measures there in the first place.
