It’s a startling fact that more than two thirds of companies who lose their IT systems to fire, fraud or disaster eventually collapse and go out of business forever. Which, when you consider it, is about as terrifying as sharing a lift with a fire-breathing Godzilla. Or Bill Gates, come to that.
Equally, the threat of viruses and malicious software, network intrusion, eavesdropping, line tapping and sniffing (yes, sniffing! We didn’t name it!) careless employees and users are all threats to the security and health of your IT system.
And we’re afraid that they are not going to go away. They are the usual suspects in any average office line-up of virtual bogeymen and disasters waiting to happen. And they could quite easily mean curtains for even the healthiest of businesses.
So that’s how important it is that you have the best possible back-up for your IT systems. How imperative it is to be properly covered. And being properly covered usually means retaining data offsite and remotely from your business premises.
